    Very nice and doesn't look that hard to home build, I think I just found my winter project. Gonna go with larger wheels to handle the rough stuff that is our streets around here.

    Please......tell us how you know this product was "around" in the 1930's & 1940's.
    My preferred bicycle brand is.......WORKSMAN CYCLES
    I dislike clipless pedals on any city bike since I feel they are unsafe.

    one of the kids in the little rascals/our gang films had a delivery service.
    the inside of the box had stuff he delivered.

    would that make it a progenitor of the cargo scooter?

    i can't vouch for 30's-40s, but i have the faintest recollection of being stuffed into one like that, and being riden around by my brother or someone. that would be early-mid 60's.

    i want to say it was a separated old steel wheel skate on a 2x4 with some kind of crate on the front. it's an old memory just brought back when i read this though, so i'm just guessing from what i know now of how it might have been made.
