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.
