I am based in the outskirts on the NE side of Norwich, and have just relocated my workshop; so I am waiting for a new phone line to be put in.

However, I can be reached on 01603 435 199 until about 6-7pm most evenings or until midday on Saturdays.

My business is called Cargo Cycles, and I build cargo carrying bicycles, tricycles, quadricycles, and fixies, along with general steel fabrication, specialist tube manipulation and bending, and plywood forming. I have recently been making a lot of animal related steel fabrications: Dromedary & Bactrian Camel saddle frames, Mule pack frames, Llama pack frames and two Elephant Howdahs.

Yes,

I build those Pedi-vans and trucks, and currently I am building two pedal powered Old wild west style Medicine/snake oil show vehicles for a well known Magician and his touring magic and illusions show.

Love the pedivan, but I don't see how the pallet tool is supposed to work.
I use a claw hammer with a mallet. Ear defenders are a must though.

I am sorry that I've not been back sooner to this tread to answer the question about the Pallet bar: recently I've been up to my neck in work building the two pedal powered medicine show quad bikes, Elephant Howdah frames, and a very large production run of Pallet Reclamation Bars. I have also registered the design of the pallet reclamation bar and applied for a patent.

Here is a link to a short video of me using one of my Pallet bars: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ipQLy-0Pfag&feature=related

The double headed Pallet bars are 45 each plus 11.50 P&P (Parcelforce 48 with tracking) and are available from stock. payment by Cheque, Postal order, or paypal

They can be ordered by by calling:01603 435199 or 07758 786036. email; cargo-cycles@live.co.uk
