This is a recently completed project bike. The goal was to build a utility bike with porteur style rack out of pre-used or homemade parts. The steel frame came from e-bay and is of unknown manufacturer (possible Nishiki). The rest of the parts came from a GT Karakorum (broken frame) a miyata (broken frame) or parts already in my possession: Deore LX derailleurs and hubs; Mavic rims, Albatross handlebars, bar shifters, license plate fenders, WTB seat, suspension seat post, Tektro brakes and homemade rack to name a few components.

It rides quite well, the fat tires and suspension post give a very cush feel and the rack seems bombproof. Hope you enjoy.
