Hunter Travel Truck

Yes, I know, not the most practical bike but it sure is a lot of fun. I've wanted one of these for awhile now but Rick told me he'll not do be making anymore due to the time and cost involved to fab everything. Luckily one popped up and I grabbed it. Unfortunately during shipping it got a little beat up but two thumbs up to Bikeflights for stepping up and covering the cost to fix it with little to no hassle. By the way, the rack fits a nice sized soft cooler and a 12 pack easily which makes riding to the beach a snap.

Cool! Is this the same one rick sold last year? Did the buyer end up getting rid of it?

What a great bike--If i had room and lived in the city a cargo/cycle truck style bike would be a fantastic addition.

It's actually pretty easy. Way easier than I expected.

Yeah, he built it for NAHBS and the guy that bought it sold it to someone else. I picked it up from the second owner who has another cool Hunter for sale.

Just perfect. I'd be looking for reasons to make pub runs with a ride that cool.
