Market stall on a bike?

At the Greenfest Scarlett & I were talking bikes. In Holland, people have bikes that have a cargo space (flat, deep, all sorts) at the front and they bike to where a market is, open up the tarps and presto: ready made market stall. Besides that, there are heaps of ideas on what you can attach to bikes so that riding is a viable option: eg transporting kids & shopping & dogs & whatever not. It is easy to find in google image with these keywords and most of the sites are in English: "work bikes, cargo trikes, bakfiets, dutch bikes" or follow any of the links below. To have a look at what else one can do with bikes, type in "conference bike, chicagofreakbike, De bakfietsen van Mara Berkhout" (follow the links on that site for much more). http://www.workcycles.com/workbike/index.html http://www.computercyclist.com/?page_id=70 http://www.rijwielhuisklei.nl/paginas/voorraad.html http://www.dutchbikefactory.com/pages_eng/pictures.htm http://www.dutchbikes.nl/ http://commutebybike.com/2007/09/28/dutch-other-euro-bikes-interbike/ from Oregon In Australia: http://www.nicebox.com.au/products/ has the real Dutch thing http://www.cheekytransport.com.au/ http://www.epiccycles.com.au/ in Brisbane has lots of attachements http://www.elationebikes.com.au/ if you want an electric motor to help you push. There are more companies and do explore. Scarlett, the type of bike you're after could be a batavus and also known as an Oma or Opoe bike. There are lots of pictures & how to create it hints on the web. + here is an australian importer http://www.gazellebicycles.com.au/bicycles-as-transport/classic and this lot has a few available http://bikesfortransportyeah.wordpress.com/2008/06/05/double-dutch-cargo-bike-1755-limited-stock/ as well as lots of links to Sydney cycling. Hope people don't mind talking about transporting plants, rather than growing them. Cheers, Gabrielle
