Tiki Tote: First mock-up on wheels

MockUp01 photo 774089_4584193357736_880054333_o_zpsb4ce0ab4.jpg Laced the match-painted NISI rim to a Shimano NEXUS hub (still need shift linkage) with spokes I cut and threaded myself. Slowly but surely, I'm ticking items off my bicycle-building bucket list. Bars and stem are Sunlite alloy items. Inexpensive, but I like the look.
