    There's something here.
    Exactly what, I'm not quite sure just yet.

    Perhaps...
    But that seems way too obvious and uninspired. I need to think of something more radical, lol

    I think a "truck bike" with cargo basket in back like a dump truck or pickup would be interesting.

    The "plan" involves somehow grafting the bottom of the split shopping cart frame to the back triangle of the 20" Schwinn frame to extend the wheelbase for the 27" wheelset... [​IMG]

    And as Murphy's Law states:
    "You shall run out of MIG wire halfway through your intended task"
    A little duct tape to hold things together until the next go around at it.[​IMG]

    Well, I set the frame outside of my garage to work on it tonight then went inside to take a phone call. When I can back outside 15 minutes later...
    POOF, it's gone!!
    D@m scrap metal scrounge b@st@rds hitting the community on recycle night and I couldn't find them driving around town.
    And believe me, I went looking for them (with my crowbar, lol)

    Back to the drawing board I guess...
