To My Akira Bike Project followers:
Thank you for your patience and dedication, as you know this project has been a long one. But doing justice to this design requires a completely integrated build from the ground up, not a quick frame cut and weld, not cutting two bikes in half and welding them together, nor slapping on a fake wheel covering and a few stickers - I feel these are a disservice to Otomo's vision and the potential of the recumbent geometry. Layoffs and cross country moves have hijacked progress, and the expense and extent of the project has impeded it. I am not independently wealthy but I remain dedicated to the project and do not shy away from ambitious goals. With a new shop, new tools, and good job I'm making great progress now!
Before YouTube vids, I was adding all updates here. Check out this page if that's what you're looking for.
