|The bike with the new tailbox installed on part of the Yarra bikepath.|
|The box has side-panels which are held on by bulldog clips. Some more construction details are shown in photo 5 of this post.|
|In this photo (click to enlarge) you can see the piece of ply between the 2 seat supports, right above the back wheel. This stops the supports from failure by buckling, something which happened with a previous box.|
For 3 few days now, I have been riding a trike with a new tailbox and curved plywood seat fitted. My quest for the perfect tailbox takes another step, but is not over! The timber panels of this 'box can be replaced with corflute or cloth versions, but I haven't made any of these yet.
