I am wanting to start building these motorcycle carriers that use a trailer hitch to support the motorcycle. I am somewhat hesitant to do this on the account that my welds and design will be put to the test with my own $7,500 race bikes..... So I would love some advice about the metal to use and what rod to use. (There are many of these out there for sale mostly made of aluminum) I only have an old miller 200 AMP gas powered stick welder. I want to use something very sturdy this structure will need to support approx 600 pounds max my heavier desert bike weighs about 270lbs w/ fuel My motocross bike is 220 w/ fuel. As far as a weld I was going to do a stringer with some 6010 5P+ and then a cap with 7018 low hydrogen. Well thats about it I would love any help thanks alot!
