Trailer

Post by BasilF »

Decided to make a trailer in case my B50 ever needed recovering after a breakdown. Design goals were that it should take a B50 or slightly bigger bike, have no loose bits i.e. ramp and lights should be a permanent part of the trailer and it should stack against the wall of my workshop so it didn't take up too much room.

Bought a trailer kit (wheels, axle units, lights, hitch etc) and some steel and made a start.

Trial fit. Hinge on light/ramp section needed revising so it would fold flat for storage.

Structure complete including revised ramp hinge.
four.jpg
Ready to send for galvanising.

Back from galvanising. It took most of a day to drill the zinc out of holes and re-tap threads but it looks good.

Stacked against wall with removable front section off and ramp folded flat.

Of course it cost more than buying a trailer :cry:
