Here is an update on mine, it should be completed Sunday since I can pick up the rest of the parts at the co-op tomorrow. I still need to build the rack and I am thinking of using 2x2s for it. You can see how I am going to mount the rack, its pretty simple. It is a coaster brake since New Orleans is completely flat I won't need the gears. Don't have to buy expensive tandem cables neither. The hub is a Torpedo laced 4x to an Araya rim so it should be just fine for strength. Soon enough I'll build another 4x for the front. If only I could find a Mafac Racer for the front brake at the co-op. *crosses fingers*
