    I'm part way through my second Doneselli inspired cargo/food bike.
    The first one I called Asado Mechanico and the build thread exists somewhere over on rrb.
    This one is going to be set up to make late night Bahn mi runs and will hopefully be somewhat lighter and faster :)

    Heres a pic of my first bike..

    And one of the first bit of frame work for
    Bahn mi..

    At the end of the truss, between the front wheels I'll build and mount a steering mechanism like this..

    The first one looks extremely heavy. How much does it weigh?

    I don't think I live far from you, so I have to ask, is this a commercial enterprise? I'd ride up to your neck of the woods to try it out.
