BSO-KDV trike child carrier

I have been thinking on a child carrying trike,i thought about a front loader and just build a box on it,then i found this online "picture below" and it looks really cool there worth about $4000 + shipping from Europe,to high for me.Planning to buy a Worksman Front Loader - Model STPT for $900,build the frame and install a Crystalyte HS35 motor with 3 12v 105amh batteries.
Any reasons this shouldn't work??

There are quite a lot of bikes like that built in the US now, DIY and factory. Also bikes to be bought second hand if you know where to look. Did you search the Utility bike forums?
