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.

The title should read ‘Junkfiets’ instead of ‘Junkfiet’, as ‘fiets’ is a bike in Dutch.
Which leaves ‘bakfiet’ which needs an trailing ‘s’.
Ah. I wondered about that. Thanks for the correction, Wouter!
