Additional FeaturesAn Akro bin bolted to the tail for groceries, repurposed metal parts

Built a trailer that attaches to tailpod subframe for those tough
days toting around kids' bikes between home and the elementary school
4 blocks away.
Best toy I could have made for the family. Always a hit for the kids
dads and moms on summertime vacations in the woods. Super gratifying
to hop on for the mile ride into downtown. Easy to put up on my
tilting hitch mount on our car, especially if the battery is removed
and put in the car.
