Reader George, who has submitted some hacks before, contacted us once again and sent along some great pictures of a bike built to haul. Text from George in italics, the rest is my take.
The ultimate transporter,I have a bike here that my friend made from an Instructables. It is a long tail bike that I have put my folding clam-shell gadget. Which in reality is a folding garage organizer from Rubbermaid. You can get these form home depot or Lowe's for about $6.00. They work great to carry anything you want . After trying different things on the rear part of the bike like a bread rack or a wooden wine box. You can truly haul just about any thing your heart desires.
Dang, it must have taken some serious patience and skill to get that extended frame straight. I remember when I worked to build a wood shelf unit in the past I had a heck of at time making everything level and even. I can't imagine the complication with welding and metal. And with the weight of the bike and cargo, I would think that you would have to pay careful attention to braking.
Although I appreciate the water bottles as examples . . . I'm picturing a way to put a keg on this thing.
Delivery riders in NYC use this same kind of bread basket to haul food stuffs around - namely pizza.
Nice work George, that is some ride. If y'all have questions, I'm sure you could leave them in comments for George to answer.
