    Maybe some fenders to keep the splash down if the roads are wet.

    The fenders were installed after the picture was taken.

    the 60-40 ratio for the axel make no difference in that case. The bike is very short and is only 400 pounds or so. The weight on the hitch is something around 120 pounds. I've see many other manufactured trailers with the same design. With a custom, the rear wheel is a little back the axel.

    I sold the trailer to someone who put in back of a tercel with no problem.

    Question

    Your English is better than my French.

    Do you have a pic of the cross member fastened to the tongue; what keeps it from twisting there? Are there gussets or small 45* braces? All of the motorcycle's left to right 'falling' energy is applied to that joint.

    I like different, it makes me think outside the box. Thanks for the pics.

    Sorry no pictures,

    I use 2 angle iron back to back (made a "T") and between a flatbar 1/4 (at maybe 30 degre) to reach the bottom of the boxtube.

    When binded with ratchet strap, the bike and the trailer are really glued together.
