Not bad for a home made bike hauler! What's the bed length and width? Is it wide enough to handle a trike?

rigid frame:crying:. no suspension.
For what you put into it, you could possible replace the axle with a true trailer axle and springs, available at Northern tools. The only problem would be the wheel centers, most axles are made for either 4 or 5' centers.
You could maybe just add some springs.
But for emergency breakdowns it's just the ticket so long as you can ride the bike up a ramp.
Like this one I built

Hey, Tricky, it looks like you used the same wheel chock I used on my trailer from Harbor Freight. Tractor Supply carries some good axles and other trailer parts too.

the c - channel for the tires actually un bolts at the front and then it will tilt to allow you to ride or push(for harleys) up on it.

Looks a little big to pull behind a MC. Mine is a whole lot smaller and cost much more, ha.

I think it's a great deal! :)



The only downsideI seeis that the wheels look to be too far to the rear.Too much weight from the motorcycle will be on the toungue.



If you arepulling behind afullsize pick up, it shouldn't be aproblem, but if you are pulling behind something small, it may put too much weight on the rear of the tow vehicle.



I don't do a lot of towing, but I am soon to be selling my pick up truck, and I am going to replace it with a utility trailer behind my car. I don't get enough use out of my truck to justify the extra expense anymore. So it would be very important to me to make sure that the trailer was well balanced if I were going to try to pull it behind my car.



I'm sure that people here with more towing experience can comment further.
