Default Re: Trailer from scrounged shopping cart

I've pulled a trailer before. All it takes is some common sense about speed and stopping distance. And it's surprisingly light so far. I'd guess about 15-20 lbs.
No problem with my brakes. I can lock the rear wheel at full speed sitting on the seat and I weigh 250lbs.
As far as a child seat...I'm thinking about building a rail setup for using it to tow another motorbike sometimes and building a removable seat for it to be used as a people hauler also. I have several people interested in a trailer that can haul adult people, so its worth looking into.
If more is better, then too much is just enough.
If you can't afford it, build it yourself.
