    Nah that red one - the pivot point is behind the passengers still, same with the green one. In the picture Ken posted the frame is elongated and the headset position is low to the ground and much further forward.

    This is done to prevent the bike tipping forward under braking or moving load.

    These are very simple to make. Buy a bike, take out the forks, weld up a box frame and put some wheels on it. You can even mount some disc brakes to the front too. Why don't you just buy a real pedicab - those things are death traps bro and i've been around the world riding on them and in them.

    Just don't do your taxi service part.

    This red front loader is for sale(300usd) in Rio.From these pictures the pivot seems to be bellow the bed but I agree its not safe at all.Do you think its worth it if I make some (major)adjustments????

    On regards to real pedicabs,Importing one would cost me nearly 10k as I will have to pay 60% in custom taxes over the total price+shipping,according with brazillian law.
    by the way:this is where I will be riding on:

    Fair enough bud, yeah you are right the pivot point is below my bad - it is a better option than the green one.

    That looks like a beautiful place to sell your wares!!
