Box Dog Pelican
1/31/2009 - It's built, for the most part.

Things still remaining to do:
* get a proper saddle. I've been riding with the green Brooks off my Kogswell, which is ugly and only moderately comfortable. The brown Brooks in the most recent photos is off my wife's Kogswell. It matches the colors much more nicely.
* Mount the Velo Orange constructeur rear rack.
* Maybe find some ATAC pedals that aren't bright green
* Choose luggage colors
* Buy another stem for the second set of handlebars and get them set up for quick swapping.

There may not be enough crank arm clearance for the chainguard.
