Now That is a Cool Cargo Bike

I don't know who Kenney Stantorp is, but this bike was on his Facebook page with no other information.

Mystery bike

   Google reverse image search returned no results either! It treated it like some kind of scooter.

   It looks like a whole lot of custom work for an imitation Bullitt. I'd like to know if it's a hacked up Bullitt welded to some other frame parts, or a complete custom job.

   I do like how the steering linkage goes above the headset. This way the head shock works without any steering problems. On a normal fork, you could attach the steering rod to the fork upper, which moves with the frame, like this:

Linkage connection

 The mystery bike has to go above the headset since it's a headshock. Well designed! Full suspension cargo bikes aren't entirely unheard of, here are a couple examples:

Fully custom

   Even one that started out as a Bullitt:

Modified Bullitt

   What a time to be alive.
