"Xtra-cycle": A DIY approach (pics)

These aren't mine, just something I see on my commute than makes me smile. I just got a digital camera, so I thought I'd post a couple-a pics (if I can figure out how, that is):


Who says Wally-world bikes are all that bad?


Hmmm. Looks a little bit dubious, if you ask me. I wonder if the rear suspension still works...


Here is a detail on how the basket is hooked up. That chain could use a little lovin', as could the tire


I totally didn't notice this while I was taking pictures! Must have been too keyed in on the basket-bike. I'll have to go back and get some details of this bike, for sure!

Well, whaddya think? Practical, or practically insane?

That dude lives like 4 blocks down the street from me, just south of Vine. I see that guy on the bus at UNL all the time. I've always wanted to ask him about his bikes.
