Does anybody know who makes the "Harpoon" recumbent.

I found a bitmap image at bikeculture.com (see links below), but there is no
manufacturer information listed for this particular 'bent. Looks like a nicely
built bike.

It could be a European product.

If you know who makes'em, please let me know.


Thanks!

It appears to be a (older) version of the HP Velotechnik (German) Street
Machine.

See http://www.ihpva.org/ihpva/com/HPVelotechnik/streetmachine_gross.html
for a picture. The bikes are almost identical, but the Street Machine looks
a bit more "finished."

The reason I'm familar with these bikes is because their Wavey
http://www.ihpva.org/ihpva/com/HPVelotechnik/wavey.html has a similar
geometry to my Heavy Metal http://www.ihpva.org/Builders/WVolk/hvymetal.html
design.

Enjoy,
