Bike Truck

Basically what I want to build is a truck from bicycle parts.  If I weld two frames together so they form a trike, and make an axel for the rear, add a hitch put a bench seat on a frame, and extend the rear so it has cargo space, I have a bike truck.

Now all I have to do is figure out how to make it go.  I would like to make the pedals work, especially the gearing, as that would give me a lot of gear ratio for hauling loads.  There is also the idea of an electric motor, maybe in conjunction with some of the gearing.  I am not certain what will work, but I am dam sure it will.

Anyone got some old bikes and a spare welder I can use?

Peace,
JD
