Very nice piece of work and a great way to re-use a flat wagon - not sure about the bikes though.

Gareth, the bicycle wagon looks really great, well done. You just need to get a LGB Garrett to pull it to make it look authentic....... :D

Bit more work done on the wagon this weekend. Got some more bike kits from Back 2 Bay 6. These make up into an bit of an old fashioned bike as standard. Change the handle bars on two and trimmed back the mudguards to make them look like racing bikes. His n hers of course.

fitted straight handlebars on the other two to make them more like modern touring bikes.

Handle bars were made up from straightened out paper clips.
