Very cool looking bike.

But uncomfortable as heck?

Frank Lee wouldn't put up with that kind of riding position. (Neither would I - forget vanity over comfort!) Recumbents rule!!!

Jay Leno just looked at some retro, custom built, ICE-powered bikes on his site ( Phantom Bikes - Phantom - Jay Leno's Garage ) . The "cafe" style one that looked sort of like that EV was a pain in the nads to ride for more than about 10 seconds.
