This is the tank of bikes. Built from industrial grade parts and overpowered in order to climb steep hills with a load. She's just finished a cross country tour, and she's looking for a new gig.

With a good, solid base like this, the possibilities are endless.

Would make an excellent:

-Ice Cream Cart / Food Vendor
-Downtown Package Delivery
-Grocery Getter
-An other cross country trip ;)

My name is Paul Myers, and I built the trike, so feel free to ask any questions by email, phone, or text.
