This thing is developing into quite the interesting bike.

I admire what you're doing with it. Got me looking for freebies now. Lol.

this project is finished....... covered it in stickers after painting over the trek clear coated stickers... saw a hack on youtube about using a length of chain and part of an old inner tube for a seat anti theft... I also used some to keep the milk crate attached should the zip ties and bungie cords fail
