    Oo, I like the double decker front. I can feel another box build coming on...

    If anyone can direct me to these I would appreciate it...

    Someone will have to check theirs, but the base board for this Bullitt box might be what you're looking for.

    Quick update. Handles added to the front and back of the box. First pic is lacquered and reassembled without the unnecessary frame bits. Second pic is box mounted on the bike ready for the first ride.

    So far done a 10-ish mile test ride, lugged some junk round to the garage, a bit of pottering around and a bit of a hilly 16 mile ride to Virginia Water with 3-year old onboard, picnic, blanket, cushions etc. Seems to actually work best without the seat base and a load of cushions instead. Will try and get some better pics before the box gets too beaten up.

    Previous Puky Purchasers: I'm having some problems with Puky Bikes UK. Had a LRM-B turn up in a bashed up box with some damage to the bike itself. Looks a lot like it's a customer return that has been forwarded on to me because it's got another customer's details on it. Requested a return and now they've gone quiet on me. Lots of excuses about Brexit and couriers which I was accepting at first but am now losing my patience. Immediately jumped in with how they ship around 3000 bikes a week and have few issues - well that's not my problem, I purchased this in good faith.

    Anyone else had problems with them? When you bought your bike, was there any internal packaging? Mine just shipped in a big empty box with the partially-assembled bike rattling around inside it.

    People with boxes: what do you do about front lights? At the moment I'm lighting up the inside of my box quite a lot with a handlebar mounted front light...

    The pink is somehow messing with the exposure/white balance and making it hard to photograph. It's so bright!

    I'll be honest, I'm quite enjoying the retina burn.

    Don’t know if you know already, but Mikkola died aged 78 just a couple of days ago.
