    I inherited a bunch of stuff when a relatives Schwinn shop closed down in the 80's.One thing I got was a 70's Peugeot junior 10 speed, soooo that's the heart of the build.Note, if I didn't have the forks to cut off I wouldn't have had the proper attachment arm that would clear the engine, they had to be removed, and fit perfect with the FD bracket.It's about $30 total (not including many hours of time), everything was around the farm I needed except for a few fittings and rope.It was designed with the idea of being able to throw in backpacks/duffel bags and trash bags filled with AL cans.Holds a full sized guitar and small amp easy as well.Dig the Peugeot sticker, I just had to mask it off before hack painting.Repurposing at it's finest.18lbs unloaded.
    Materials:
    Rusty old bike
    20" front BMX wheel
    Industrial brushcutter handle
    Lawnmower handle
    Chainsaw blade
    Wooden outdoor chair arm
    1/2" CPVC and fittings
    EPP wing beds covered in gorilla tape and painted with shoe-goo
    Super light Al tubing from a swiffer handle I found
    Plastic grid backing to house air filters (wheel skirts)
    Liberal use of nylon and stainless zipties/epoxy/shoe-goo fillets/ and super glue
    Assorted nuts/bolts/washers
    One package of nylon 124lb rope
    One can flat black krylon
