Easy Racer bikes are a well-established mainstay in the recumbent world. They have been made in the US since 1979 (and are still made here). Custom versions are revered for having set many human-powered land speed records. One of those record-setting bikes--the Gold Rush, built by Easy Racer founder Gardner Martin and ridden by legendary cyclist Fast Freddie Markham--is at the Smithsonian; the bike exceeded 65 miles per hour in 1986, winning the heralded DuPont Prize. (That was on perfectly flat land.)
Of course, 65mph on a bike is not your goal. At least, it shouldn't be. The point is that these bikes are easy and comfortable to ride. Ridden by a highly-trained (and slightly insane) cyclist like Fast Freddie, yes, one can go 65. Ridden by the rest of us, you can go any speed you wish, and be happy and comfortable doing it.
