My crate is a crate

Ok my crate is complete. I used 2x2x8 to build a nice frame around my pallet and then 1/8 inch masonite (cheapest I could get) to add skin to my crate. Stupidly I built my wall over the holes where the forklift slides in. A couple quick cuts with the saw and my end wall is now shorter. An interesting experience but I don't think i'd go through the effort again. I'd only ship using a simple pallet no more building wood crates. Now I have to get this bike from Minnesota to Canada, tomorrow I research paperwork and procedures.
