junkfiet1 Del Cruiser's "junkfiets" project

Del Cruiser has been working on building a “bakfiets” (box bike/cargo bike) from junked bikes and parts. He’s keeping a photojournal of his progress on Flickr.

This project was inspired by the “Carrier Pidgeon” , which is a chinese-made imitation that has a shorter payload.

By nature, bakfiets take some time getting used to due to the elongated front payload. I liked the Carrier Pidgeon because it wasn’t as long as traditional bakfiets and should be easier to maneuver.
