    I am going with the first idea I had for the WBO2015 aka Deliverence-(stand up and pedal) a 3 wheeled vending/cargo bicycle.
    Ideas are still the same,but just a name change and have decide on what sort of cargo I will be transporting.
    I will be building 2 at the same time.As I have been asked to build a Gelato Bike (sold).
    The Weenie Wagon - will be built from scratch,and from junk I have laying around here.Hope to also make it a step back in time bicycle.

    Will keep it basic,either 26" or 28" rear with 20" front wheels.

    Is this what you thought I would go with?
    I had another bike all sorted out from 2014.Was saving it for this build.But Considering someone asked for me to build the Gelato bike(money in pocket).
    I decided on this.
    Well at least I have a bike to enter in the Winter build off or 2016.

    I think you did mention you were moving this to the BBO (BigBuildOff) so I have been waiting to see it, was really looking forward to it in the WBO...

    Nice plan. I have a pair of old wheelchair wheels that are itching to go on something like this, and I have to confess that I had thought of going down this route for this build off. But I don't even know if I'll be doing anything for sure yet... we'll see.

    Glen.

    I'll be watching too. Will the whole front end turn as one piece, or wheels turn separately?

    Crack up RM... Except here you would end up in some field or floating/sinking.
    Have a cool idea for brakes.I hope.

    Will start to dig out the parts,in a weeks time.
    It's the start of the summer season here. So I will be flat out with work for a month.
    Hope to start on simple things first if I can.
    I want to have a go at doubling the width of the wheels,to make them wider.
    Also as I have so many MTB rear wheels,I am thinking to set up your typical gear system,but with a suicide shifter,and either 3-5 gears.Unless I find a nice old sachs from Germany.
    I recently lost all pics + ideas from my pc.
    So will take time to scrounge for pics again.

    From day one on RRB your builds have been fun to watch. Lately they have been down right scary on how well executed they have become!!! I have MAD respect for not only your skills and vision, but even more respect for your execution and the fun you bring to the table.
