nothin' special

All original

An inherited commuter from my old buddy Corey, gone to the land of whiskey and kilts. I added a front basket, rear rack and dual folding baskets, replaced the cruiser bars with cheap chopped risers for splitting lanes. I think it weighs as much as a Datsun, but it is great for picnics. As my cargo bike it gets ridden for grocery trips, lunch in the park and any time there's lots to carry. Pressed for beach duty, it can carry an umbrella, two beach chairs, two six packs with ice and my bag of towels and such. The fourth picture shows her carrying a 10' piece of 1 1/2" galvanized steel conduit. Heavy stuff. Thus the handle: Schwinnebago.
**Recently weighted in at (drumroll please...) 48 pounds with U-lock.

Funky cool

Love the name! And you're wrong about one thing... it weighs MORE than a Datsun. Then again, you have one of the few bikes around that may win a collision contest with an econobox. Bonus points to you for actually riding it... most collect dust in garages these days. :)
