Get a big basket on front, and you have something similar to the Schwinn Cycle Truck or the Worksman or other Low Gravity bikes.
I've got an India-made Arpan low-gravity bike. The main drawback I've found with that configuration is that if you get the front basket loaded up with groceries, straddle the bike, and lift on the handlebars, the rear wheel comes up, instead of the front. So awkward to walk it across a curb when loaded. But that's a pretty minor issue.
Mine came with a big frame to hold a wicker basket, which I didn't have (they're available by custom basket makers, tho). But I used plywood and hardware cloth to make the basket part inside the frame.
