Nice homemade basket, looks great, I am sure it works fine as well.

could you provide the dimensions that you used? (official dimensions?) - I was thinking about making my own basket as well one of these days.

Thanks

Man that is awesome... Just out of curiosity, if you purchased all the needed supplies, how much would you have in it? Besides the tire that is, I think we all could find one for free somewhere.

The majority of the cost is the chains. I chose to use chain gunge and quantity that would represent a top level basket. Home Depot or Lowe's will cut the chain for you and it should not run more than 1.70 a foot for the twenty-four 25 inch chains. The wood was less than 15 bucks. I already had the screws and nails needed but the additional stuff would be less than five bucks. You should have less than 55 bucks in it, but it will actually be better quality than other home baskets such as the Innova Sport. If you wanted to cut corners on the chains, you could make it for less than 35.00 bucks.
