Tried resizing, renaming, different pics, deleting pics from PB. Nothing is working. I can't upload pics to PB. Guess they want me to upgrade.....to smugmug.

Now it's working. Last nights progress.


Found out too late you have to take apart a Z50 wheel to get the tire off. I cut the old one off bead and all and couldn't get the new one on.

Took it out for a rip. Pretty cool!! Rode my 50 lb. son around the yard in it and could barely feel it. Then rode my wife sitting on the box and it held up just fine. Got a few odds and ends to tidy up but that's pretty much it aside from paint. Got a chrome fender for the back and might put a rack over that for a gas jug or something.


Edit: Got 25 bucks in the new tire and 40 in the box. Everything else was free or scrap around the garage.

For sure! But what color? I think that wheel needs to be red with the white wall tire. Maybe a white frame to make it easier to inspect welds.

My wife isn't here so I will give design advice (typically I am forbidden from such actions as the historical results have been far less than desired). I'd color match it to your Suzuki: yellow frame, black rim, white or yellow rear fender.

Once you get used to having a trailer it is hard not to take it with you... especially commuting...
