6 seat Dursley

I have seen pictures of a quadruplet but never a six seater. Was one ever built? Or designed? Is it possible? As I would like to do it.

Welcome to the forum - all six of you!

My guess on this is that making a 5, 6, or 7 seater Pedersen would be stronger than any similar 'normal' or diamond framed machine because of Mikael Pedersen's unique design. But a significant limiting factor would probably be other equipment - especially the wheels.

The fact that Pedersen himself made a quadruped, and Jesper Solling made Copenhagen tandems, means that the frame can be extended for 2, and for 4 riders - so why not also for 3, 5, or 6 (or more) riders? As already mentioned, I think the wheels and other equipment is where you will need most engineering ingenuity.

Be sure to post your progress reports and photos here!

This Tate Gallery link shows a five seat Pedersen built by Turner Prize winning artist Simon Starling:
