Nice looking bike.

Couple of things , if you walk it holding the seat like an ordinary bike does it push ok ? or does the wheel suddenly flop right or left and cannot be brought straight again ?

If it flops you probably have to much trail and the bike will have very lively steering and be a handful at low speed and when trying to say signal and ride it with one hand.

Also I would brace both the rear legs with a small piece of tubing say a piece of seat or chain stay and I would brace underneath the head tube tying the front and rear tubes and head tube together near the bottom bearing.

If that's your first ride then you have no worries. My lowracer rode similar at low speed initially - you have to learn yourself how to ride in the recumbent position on a 2 wheeler. The problem I encountered was wobbly steering as the speed increased. This was due to me being nervous and gripping the handlebars too tightly - as people on here reassured me that was the case. Over time it has improved to the point where it doesn't wobble as I learned to relax. Enjoy :D

I made a steel plate seat with lombar design. I will add E.V.A.

After some training I can ride with it. No so agile like a mtb , it's normal for this kind of bicycle ok?. It's hard to ride in city. I installed 48x38x28 front and 8v 11-32 rear. It seems so fast!!! Overall I like!

Well my Tomahawk bumps all time in holes. It's normal? Maybe tires? Maybe steel frame?

How rear fork tube broke, I reduced rear forks angle to 125 to try reduce trail in front and put a 1.95mm thickness in it. It's work's. Handling better now.

Maybe the recumbent riding position -- different from a diamond frame where you can raise your rear from the seat -- on a recumbent you get to grin and bear it...
Congratulations on a sweet ride!

Well, put tires in maximum pressure . Much better now. Maybe inadequate tires. Front tire has "confort" in description.
