After buying my new bike I wanted to put a wicker basket on the front. It just seemed like that would look neat and also be a place to carry a water bottle or whatever. After looking at baskets, wicker and wire I decided to find another way to get a basket for my bike. I didn't want to strap an old milk crate on, I wanted it to look nice even if I didn't buy a new basket.
I decided to look around the thrift stores as I get the chance to see what I could come up with.
Yesterday on our way home, Jeff and I stopped at a Goodwill. I was surprised they were open on Sunday but they were. Anyway I found a nice big basket with a handle.
When we got home, Jeff got his hack saw out and I sawed off the handle.
Then we attached the basket to my bike using those zip ties.
Jeff commented that the color looked nice.
I think it will work fine.
