    If you put lids on the baskets, it could also be a dual purpose bike......A grocery getter AND an animal (small) control bike. I can see it now. Groceries in the right basket, a couple of raccoons, squirrels, maybe a few chihuahuas in the left.

    Also, if you had a mind to. You could back it into the lake for a bait trap. Or in the South, crawfish.

    Shortened the cart handle and mounted it up as well between the two sides...[​IMG]

    I'm in to paint finally...[​IMG]
    Light gray primer coat but will eventually be a silver frame so I'm sure it will look very similar. Still deciding on the fork colour though.
    Thoughts anyone?

    Nothing goes better with silver,than PINK


    Except:
    From the crown down to about 1/3...red. The second 1/3 white. Final 1/3 red...And then a red maple leaf on the white, both sides...You guys have it made. It's a lot easier to do a Canadian flag design pattern, than an American flag.

    Headset greased up, forks somewhat painted and installed.
    Hope to be able to follow @KOTA 's suggestion and make them resemble the Canadian flag, if I have the time.
