I'm sure Worksman Cycles will sell you one. They still make
that sort of bikes. http://www.worksman.com/business.html

The Roadmaster basket is not like a Schwinn Cycle-Truck basket. The Roadmaster basket is made of flattened mesh with flat reinforcements in the corners. The Schwinn basket is wire with strapping.

For Sale:

Rudge Sports Men's 3-speed bicycle. Circa 1972. Black stove enamel. 21" frame w/ 26x1 7/8" wheels. All original w/ old leather Brooks saddle in good condition. A few scratches here and there and the decals have seen better days, but otherwise very good, ridable condition. A bit of elbow grease on the chrome and frame will yield great results. Fenders, chainguard, brakes, and rims have some very light surface rust, but all will clean up easily. Includes a never-mounted replacement set of black NOS Rudgefenders and chainguard, a extra front hub w/ oil clip, and a new, gorgeous, never-mounted, double rail, Brooks B-66 in antique brown (w/ chrome springs), AND a genuine NOS Miller ding-dong bell in its original box. All you need to create a sparkling, original, veddy English 3-speed for special occasions (e.g., courting that special someone, parades, commuting to the pub, etc.) Shipping extra. $329. Pics available upon request.
