Applied Impractical Bycicle Dynamics

We designed a bike that is able to carry some serious cargo. Part of the design came from thinking about a “double-decker” bike that worked for 2 people. We modified the idea by discarding the person in the bottom and putting the cargo area in there. The whole project was in truth just a fun excuse to learn to weld

Preparing the surface to weld two bikes
First weld of the two bikes
One bike has the back wheel intact but it is standing so that the Head Tube lays horizontal, to weld to the cross bar of the second bike.
Here the two bikes are joined at the head tube and crossbar. An extension was made to the the Fork of the front bike.
