    Just some wheels

    A friend at faire thinks he needs a cart to vend coffee from. So I whipped up this demo version for him tonight.

    This is just a full scale mock up. If it pays off for him a much nicer one with wooden wagon wheels will be made.

    I like the bike forks and wheels. Strong and universally replaceable/repairable. Yes they may look too modern, but they sure do beat having to fabricate a larger contraption.

    OK, am I the only one who thought of the "Bring out your dead" scene from Monty Python's Holy Grail?

    Nice looking prototype, Chuck, but that cart's not gonna hold a lot of bodies if it's that small.
