Very nice, Thanks. How do these mount?

No frame. Under seat? Over seat with straps? Never seen them before but definitely possible.

So it begins, I have test ridden it in the driveway. It should be completed by the weekend.




Shot of the new rack there too.

You don't need a wheelie bar... Just sit closer to the gas tank on fast starts !

Its mounted thru the axle,( steel shaft) thats what holds it up it pivots side to side. It leans when you lean. I will get some closeup pics of the setup this weekend. I am still cutting and grinding, and figuring out a suitable cargo box.

heres the pics, its near done but not yet.


heres how the mounting looks, 1/4 steel rod thru the axle.



heres a full lean shot.



this is a prototype the 1st of a few anyway until I get it all sorted and find out what I really like. I can say that this one will not see offroad duty. The next one will have some type of suspension and a limit on the kick up it can do when you hit a bump. I can smash my license plate with this one if I want to.

Very cool. What kind of speed and distance can a bicycle wheel handle? Just wondering if the bearings will hold up. I think it's a great idea for XRL travel, especially for the supposed weak subframe.
Also, do you think suspension will be necessary with a loaded trailer on fire roads and double track? When you say suspension, do you mean something simple like horizontally mounted springs or more sophisticated like shocks?

You need some sort of mud/water shield on the front of the box. How much weight do you think it would hold?

I think the big bearing 26in wheel should handle under 60 ok, i will keep you posted. I was thinking of a small spring over shock on a swingarm setup behind the box, no it wouldnt need it IF you had some type of limit installed for the kick back it has.

Im working on that, Im guessing 20 to 30 lbs is going to be my limit. Thats allot of camping gear. I am going to flip the rear section over and lower the main cargo area, losing ground clearance but lowering the C/G.

I do not know yet, My main goal with this is to carry stuff to work about once every two weeks 15 mile trip. So I will wait till the local p/o tells me I need to.
With our strange laws here it states that if you can see the vehicles lights you need no trailer lights and a trailer is listed as a 2 or more wheeled cargo hauling blah blah blah. So I really dont know. If they say its a trailer I may bolt it to the front axle and push it .
