This is my buddy Dan's bike. It's built around a Novara buzz frame, but then modded all crazy. A single brake lever actuates both brakes. The rear Xtracycle-ish part is made from old Tange chainstays and electrical conduit that were bolted together, and then affixed to the seat tube with liberal amounts of JB Weld. The front Dyno hub powers the headlights, that in turn light up the night sky. He also built a basket trailer from more conduit, capable of pulling small adults and a week's worth of groceries.
Sorry for the bad pics, but I'll take better ones soon.
