Good call on the bearings. Seen more than one leaving a trail of smoke as it drags down the road.OH, I will. By the time I get done with it, it'll do just fine. First step is going to be pressure washing and bearings. After that, any metal repair, then painting.
I've already been looking. I found some here in town for about the same price. I'll be picking some up after the first of the year.That is about the perfect size to put a bike on, it will work great. I scored a hell of a trailer on Craigslist this summer. I got a dual axle 7x12 utility trailer with new tires for $375. Had good wood deck but the fenders are a little wrinkled. Either way, works great.
I use an adjustable wheel chock from Harbor Freight, works great and it holds the bike up by itself while I tie it down.....cost about $50 if I remember right.
Late to the party again ... the posting was removed by the owner.
Good luck with it Dave.
Yeah, it was really great pictures! LOLAw, you missed a great ad. There was a photo of it featuring naked, dancing women leaping through a ring of fire and everything....
I actually went the other way. We used the enclosed trailer to pull 3 or 4 bikes of ours and friends to Sturgis (my grandpa wanted to go, hes in his 70s and didnt want to ride). Despite our best tie down attempts one came loose (it happens). Well we checked the trailer a couple times but it just worked out that this happened between checks.....by the time we figured it out the bike was fairly beaten up. With an open trailer we would have noticed far sooner, likely right when it happened.Just a comment for "cruiser" guys looking to add a trailer to their inventory.
I've had "open air" trailers, and have moved on to an enclosed trailer. Cleaning the bike after storms and such is a pita. You can't tow with a cover on, it will damage your finishes.
An enclosed trailer purchased used will usually hold it's value.
