Cargo bike - Bakfiets style Answered

I think it would awesome to come up with a great instructable for building a cargo bike. Bakfiets, Madsen, Bilenky, Yuba all make interesting concepts. My favorite design is Bakfiets. I would love to try to build one myself but wouldn't know where to even begin.

I think he meaans that an image or two to illustrate your ideas would be nice.

In the mean time, have you seen this SUB project?

Sure. Here are some links. The basic idea would be for a two-wheeler with a large box in the front that can hold a couple of kids or other cargo.

Ah, I see. I think the SUB I linked to has similar capabilities, but is easier to engineer for the amateur.
