This is our 1997 GL1500SE / '98 Lehman GTL and 1997 Cycle Mate CM2000 trailer.



I have (since this picture was taken) replaced the absolutely horrible seat with the almost unused (3 months or so in 1997) original and Utopia back rest.

I think it'll last us a long time yet I think ....



The trailer top was originally done with a mural, then it got scratched by the '02-'04 owner laying something on it and it was repainted, and after I bought it the candy top coat began pealing in large pieces and so I covered the top with adhesive backed heavy duty textured vinyl like steps are covered with (come in rolls, see ebay) .... but one day I plan to simply remove chrome, plug holes with screws from below, and have top coated in "Line-X" bed spray and then reattach the trim.

Seeing some really nice picture of Bike and Trailers out there. Really good to be getting the year of the trailer and model of the trailers for reference for other riders that maybe wanting to get one...
I see Crystal Pistol trailer, which is a 1997, is a lot like mine, (first post)1987 Time trailer, except i believe his lid is a little better design.. more aerodynamic. Still waiting for Halfling to say what he use's the PVC pipe under his trailer for.. This spring, i think i will put one under mine. I think i could get a pop up tent in a 6 in PVC... Condor, Mid Mo

Halfling uses PVC pipe to store tent poles.

Thats a nice looking set up!! Tastefully done!

I often wondered how a bedliner type spray would work on the tops of those. I see a lot of those type trailers and quite a few have either sun damage or have just been repaired from sun damage, or other damage, like cargo scratches etc..... I wold think the bed liner spray would stiffen it up, hold it together and take a beating from the weather and the cargo if needed.

Thank You Sir!

I find it very handy actually, when on rides and pulled off at an overlook or other rest stop, very convenient to lay jackets and set helmets on short term with no worries. When (assuming if) I peel the adhesive backed vinyl off and have it sprayed, I'll open the lid, tape / paper the sides, and after prep .... have top done with Line-X minus traction granules, I was quoted $100.
I also think it'ld be easy to add stiffness with some mesh in the Line-X between coats.
I bought the vinyl cheap enough though and it cleans up nice and looks good "dressed", I have a whole afternoon trimming / fitting invested in it.
