    After looking around the internet and forums, I decided I needed as shooting bench. After stripping the recumbent bike down this is what I came up with. Had to do a little whittling on the front post. It is very stable.

    Here it is with the fold out arm for rifle shooting.

    Connect the pedals back up and attach them to a wet tumbler to kill two birds with one stone.

    It will be used, instead of in the corner of the garage, or in the driveway for sale!! Well done.
