I love riding this bike. It is basically like I am riding a station wagon. As you can see the majority of the parts I have used are from random (mainly)local sources. This bike is my favorite for pulling my son around in a trailer and doing just about anything in here in Portland. It is very rewarding to construct a bike with quality used parts from various sources. If you haven't done a project like this try it, it's a super fun adventure!

p.s. I think it is pretty lame that there is advertising for the military on this site.
