(from the Patent)
A recumbent vehicle including parallel paired recumbent bicycles operatively and reversibly joined by a bracing assembly having less than four brace members, is provided.
The parallel paired recumbent bicycles are easily separable, without the need for tools, for individual riding.
A conversion kit for reversibly uniting a pair of recumbent bicycles so as to form a recumbent quad is similarly provided.
The kit generally includes a bracing assembly including a pair of braces, and brackets adapted to reversibly receive portions of the braces therein.
One of the brackets is a front bracket with another of the brackets being a rear bracket.
The front bracket is supported by a front triangle of a diamond frame of the recumbent bicycle, with the rear bracket being supported by a rear triangle of the diamond frame.
