Easy Racers Gold Rush Recumbent Bicycles
“Fast Freddie” Markam won the $18,000 DuPont Prize on this bike in 1986. It’s aerodynamic fairing completely encloses the rider and roughly doubles the top speed. While not practical on the street, this fairing was essential for “Fast Freddie” Markam to reach his record breaking 68 mph speed!
The Gold Rush is now at the Museum of American History in the Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C. Unfortunately, it is no longer on display.
