Homebuilt Bikes Stolen. Oh, man....

After coming home from Sunday's Human Powered Vehicle Races, we discovered that Saturday during the night someone had climbed the fence in our backyard and taken two homebuilt recumbents from our patio in the Portland, OR area.  Either one would be pretty easy to recognize if you ever see them for sale or at a group ride.

The first is a red underseat steered short wheelbase.
Rear Wheel: 650, Steel rim (heavy), Schwalbe Marathon
Front Wheel: 16" alum rim, Kenda Kwest
Cranks: 3 piece, 3 speed, w mtn bike pedals
Shifters: ratcheting friction levers
Brakes: Rear Shimano v-Brake, front caliper brake
The rest is either homebuilt or a mix of oddball components. 
The front end has some extra welds due to several repairs and modifications.
It had fenders, rear rack, water bottle cage on stem, skate wheel idler.

The second is a greent tadpole trike with reflective shark stickers.
Rear wheel: 26", painted black with green spokes, off road tread
Front Wheels: 20", painted black, with 36 green spokes, custom hubs and steering knuckles, off road tread
Cranks: 3 piece, 3 speed, with green bash guard
Brakes: Front disc brakes
The rest is either homebuilt or a mix of oddball components. 
It had 3 fenders, rear rack, water bottle cage mounted on the frame, red skate wheel idler.
If you ever see them, please email angry82poet@yahoo.com
