TOMS CARGO BIKES

 

This album shows the steps to making one of my "mountain william" type cargo bikes. These plans are provided (free of charge) for those who might want the satisfaction of building and riding their own rattletrap. I didn't include every step - just the one's I think are important - you're going to have to use some imagination.  Also, you'll notice very few measurements, just estimates, it's all part of your adventure.  I'm from the "measure once, cut twice and then hit it with a hammer" school of design. Go ahead and use some of my ideas or just straight up copy them. It's totally cool with me, anyway thats what I did. Good luck and please, don't tell the Dutch.
