Been reading up on DS trailers for a while now and have decided to try one.
So far, zero dollars. All the bushings and bearings are good. Shocks seem fine for 100 pound load. Need a good tire.



I thought I would flip the frame for the frontend and down tube but I think the head tube needs to lean forward?



Now for some cutting and welding.

This thread should go back in hacks.
Lots of good info in here.
Or, is there a new trailer thread up there?

I am VERY curious to see how this turns out!

And I agree - it should go back into "Hacks" or maybe into "Assembly Required"...

I thought "Hacks" were sidecars.

from the home page:
