    This is why I made the suggestion for your fork. This is a cropped pic from my build thread (pg 6)
    I'm Canadian-American.

    To bad you don't have one of those plastic grocery store baskets to keep with the theme.

    Forgot that I do have one of those baskets! It's green. Now where is it hiding? I'm sure it's full of assorted bicycle parts, lol

    How about a 'kiddie ride' for out front? We always had a mechanical horse or motorcycle outside our grocery stores. And, we might get to ride it, cost 5 cents, if we were good in the store.
    That was our entertainment in the late '50s ....:)

    Unless I have one in one of my parts bins (which I don't), i don't think I'd be able to find one of those in the 3 hours we left before the deadline, lol

    So the new and improved, more grocery store-ish detachable, wheeled front basket in a fashionable, bargain hunting, buy-that-meat-product-on-sale-1-day-before-the Best Before-date green hue. Coloured matched to be suitable for the Christmas shopping season as well.
    :)

    I can't forget to mention the catchy mud flap/license plate

    And that's a wrap, I think. Off to the Finished Bikes page...
    Hold up, not quite yet!

    That's a huge basket, and it has wheels. You truly built a grocery getter.

    A cooler than dangit award competitor.
