The frame builder in Huntsville to whom you’re referring is Hans Schneider. You can find him at www.hansschneidercycles.com/. However, before you do that you may want to call some of the “established” and older bike shops around town. Boones is one and West End Bicycles is another.
Yes, if you google you’ll find one in Huntsville. As noted in my original email, check Boone Cycles, I seem to recall them telling me years ago about one located closer. Maybe no longer true.
- If you're thinking of a "farm wagon" to trundle around in the garden -
Lowes has a grown-up version of the little red wagon that has large
baloon tires and a cargo load of a couple hundred pounds. You could
add an electric motor to that.
Better yet, a new "fad" in EVs is the electric garden tractor - remove
the briggs & Stratton engine and replace with electric motor &
That way you could tow a wagon or mow grass without the gasoline
