Google "recycled recumbents" for another good site for homemade recumbents.

I have a mig welder and a garage full of tools, but I built the Mach 2 with not much more than a hacksaw and an oxy/acet set and some brazing, heating and bending. It's fun to ride.

Remember to use quality components for best results! I lucked out and had a neighbor lady give me two old road bikes she was going to throw away !!!! The parts on them were pretty good for twenty year old bikes!!

My humble little tandem trike is a sociable:




Too bad I don't have anybody to be "sociable" with. :(

Lots more pics of this one & some of my other crap here:

I recommend Bikes@Vienna [http://www.bikesatvienna.com/], in addition to new models they always have a good selection of well maintained used model. They are only a block from the W&OD trail, so you can get in a good test ride before you buy.
Mt Airy Bikes [http://www.bike123.com/] may be a little closer to you and has a very good selection.
