I started a project similar to this using some really nice cherry wood I had left over from a hurricane. After I mocked it up I didn't like the interference I had with the handle bars. I either had to place the basket(load) well out from the head tube as this fellow has done or I had to limit the height of the load. Being on a long bike that is probable not an issue. It wasn't necessary and it got cold so I abandoned the project.
This is a good hack and I like it.
I like the front fender as well.

I'm in the process of hacking two identical bikes into one to create a long-bike and I've been thinking of mounting a front rack. I believe I have finally stumbled upon the perfect way to do that! Nice Job!

A guy I know who works at Soma Fabrications in SF designed something similar, and I've ridden their prototype. It's got a 20" front wheel to get the rack lower, and riding it felt a little like driving a forklift (turning but not having the rack move) but all in all it seemed like a promising design.

Nice job!

An excellent solution to support the countless front mount pet carriers on the market that mount to the handle bars, thus tossing your pet about every time one makes a turn. With a little additional DIY design, these pet carriers can be fitted to this ingenious rack design, thus eliminating the handle bar attachment requirement. Well done!
