Bicycle Pizza Carrier built from scrap materials

FeaturedContest Winner
I love bicycles and I love pizza.  So, what could be better than using my bike to pick up a pizza!* 

That is the inspiration behind this instructable - a Bicycle mounted pizza carrier. 

Unfortunately it will be difficult to exactly duplicate my build (more on that later), but hopefully this instructable will provide some ideas for somebody looking to build something similar.



*I suppose eating pizza WHILE riding the bike would be the best, but I don't know if I have the coordination for that...

Step 1: Design

Picture of Design
To start off, here are a couple Design Goals:

1) It must be able to be attached/removed quickly
2) It must be insulated so as to not let the pizza get cold on the ride home
3) It must be able to carry 1 large pizza and wings, or two large pizzas
4) It must be stable, so as to not lose the precious cargo
5) Lets see if I can build it using things laying around the garage...

My bike is equipped with a rear rack, so I will use this to support the pizza carrier.

Important Dimensions:

The size of an average pizza box (in Central New York) is:
16.5" x 16.5" x 2.25"

The size of an average chicken wing container is:
10" x 6" x 3.5"

This means the inside carrier dimensions must be, at a minimum:
16.5" x 16.5" x 5.75"

That is cool! I'm pretty sure nobody is gonna' be delivering pizza on a bike in my aria, but that is indeed very cool; I bet that thing does great at holding in the heat.
