    Default bike trailer

    Just thought people might find this interesting. This trailer was whipped up by my right hand man out of left over materials from other jobs. The axle is a 2500lb torsion bar out of a rotten snowmobile trailer. The frame was a 1960's 3" channel boat trailer frame (that was still like new), the deck is 1/8" steel diamond plate with flush E-track. It tilts with the aid of a nitro gas shock and has a slide out rear extension that drops the approach angle down to the point you could push a bike up on to it. Its a pretty slick trailer, he did a remarkable job. I will have to see if I can get a close up of the front tire hoop-its all twisted 3/4" he bent around some pipes welded to the welding table. now all we need is to get it sold and recover some labor cost.
