Is there a track attached to the bottom of the box to fit the projection coming up from the frame? If so this would seem to stabalize the steering, maybe? Would have to half circle? maybe include a roller on top of projection in case weight in box tries to constrict movement?

Well, it looks good, but I am the lazy type, so I think buying a Christiania bike is the right solution for me.
I think I may do something like this. However, I may look to another source for insperation: On a cruise a few years ago, they had "Taxis" on the dock, that were 3-wheeled bicycles in the traditional Tri-cycle configuration.I'm definately going to use what you learned in my designing and planing. Thank you for posting this instructable
I think the cargo box looks pretty classy. It is, in fact, why I opened your instructable, to find out the material and construction. So..tell me about the box. Thanks.

great job! very inspiring. How is the steering now? I imagine if you power the pedals too hard when it's empty it tries to jacknife? If you build another vehicle, check out "castor angle" when it comes to bikes. I'm not sure how that translates to a beast like this though. I assume the box, when laden, is so heavy that it becomes the main consideration when riding and keeps it all stable. Wish I'd taken more detailed photos of the ice-cream bikes I have seen on my vacations now!
