    Also have a spare 20" drum brake fork, matching front wheel, used 4 speed nexus drum brake back wheel I had bought for this (both with marathons) the mudguards and the original stem/handlebar lying around here in Berlin.

    If someone has a budget cargo build going and can use some of it, let me know.

    Double post?
    Will take a few pictures of the rotten wood and reassembly.
    Would make a new one, but reuse not buy is strong with me right now.

    Installed the rear brake with one of those, it works but pad placement isn't perfect:

    My Bakfiets is finished. Its the main frame, steerer, stand and steering rod left from when I bought it. The 26x2,4 Schwalbe Supermoto just fits, and is way nicer than the 48mm Marathon. Need fat tire in the front too.
    Will restore the wooden box, but quite like the orange one.

    Love this!
    Looks like the motor will be welcome, can't be lightweight with those profiles.

    Matching handles and light switches is a dream.
    We live in a flat with 3 beautiful massive paneled doors with brass handles.
    And 2 cardboard doors with the cheapest handles ever.
    Guess which ones are the doors we actually use eg bedroom and bathroom?
    But then we could never afford this flat if the landlady was into expensive stuff, so I just spend to much time thinking of improvement that will never happen.

    Unless you also use a supernova front you won't have a standlight I think?

    Unless your commute is very long and/or you go full racer, none?
    Obviously depends on your bike and how well your behind likes your saddle, but it's actually possible to cycle quite far without padded shorts.
    I went from always bibs to shorts/trousers and breathable odlo boxers unless I am on the bike with the unpadded saddle.

    Like the approach of having nice tights so you can wear the oldest bibs you own underneath.

    Looked at that nice house, wondered about the colourful landscape drawing.
    Was about to ask, but then this place had all the answers already.
