I kinda did that with electric.. Hey post some pics.. When I get a chance I will post a bunch of my own on a yard show and tell of my old junk and broken stuff. I Guarantee there will be something in there for everyone to work with in our little hobbit shops!I use my trailer to haul stuff a lot, and 196cc's will pull anything! I've loaded it full with 80 oranges, I've hauled scrap metal, bicycle parts, car parts, gasoline, and even pulled other bicycles over 30mph with a tow strap!
Wouldn't it be cool if someone made a REALLY large trailer made for hauling, then had a powerful engine hidden discretely in the trailer, so it looks like you are just hauling your cargo! *Just make it obvious with LOTS of lights that you OWN your trailer, so cops don't think you are stealing your own stuff.
Here's a few recent ones.I kinda did that with electric.. Hey post some pics.. When I get a chance I will post a bunch of my own on a yard show and tell of my old junk and broken stuff. I Guarantee there will be something in there for everyone to work with in our little hobbit shops!
Does the hand truck ever want to tip on corners? WOW that is creative.. When I get mine shot and upped here please use my ideas.. They are safer than many others and are pretty cheap to do. And of course... STRONGER THAN ALL... lolHere's a few recent ones.
The trailer is my survival machine for long rides, and carries everything I need. A regular bike just doesn't hold the cargo a trailer can. The 4th picture, is my electrical system control panel, which operates the lights on the bike & trailer, & car horn for better safety. My next trailer will be smaller, but have hopefully as much or more cargo area as this one does.
I was riding on solid ice today and hit a ridge.. That usually flips me without a trailer on my rump as fast as gravity can assist. Today I hit while towing 200 pounds of books and the kid trailer actually partially stabilized my fall!! There must be something to trailers with weight that helps maintain balance. Now if your rig was pushing me on ice.. I would be scarred pottyless!The hitch is really tight, allowing a small amount of lean, so when I lean in on corners, it keeps the wheels on the ground.
It handles very well on corners, you would be amazed. Only on severe high speed turns it wants to tip up on one wheel, but it goes right back on both wheels once straight again, because my body weight counteracts the tipping.
I also don't use the kickstand, because the trailer holds the bicycle up for me. I used a handtruck as a cheap source of steel frame metal, and it's so modified that it's not really a handtruck anymore.
