Here it is! Kevin and I stayed up to 3 A.M. doing the machining and welding. I was seduced by some nice straight steel tubing at the hardware store, and so tossed the idea of using the old stays from the mountain bike. Although I did use the dropouts. So all and all this project was completed for about $20 in materials. All I paid for was the steel to make the brackets out of, and the fasteners that hold them to the basket. There are lots of little touches that need to be added, like grips, and paint, but I am going to call this one complete.
