Get Laura that bike and help out Dirtyfun and she'll let you spend whatever you need to on the trailer to go get her bike :)

You can look for wheels/tires off any 2WD Toyota pickup (except the Prerunner Tacomas) or Ford Rangers, or most late-model Jeeps. By the way f you find a complete set of wheels (or even just tires), I could use two of them (for the trailer that I listed for sale a couple of pages back).

They might be aerostar rims, but like many newer cars, they are offset like a front wheel drive vehicle. The offset is the problem..which is why either a trailer rim, or ranger/bronco or I guess as posted, a 2wd toyota truck rim should fix the probem.

The good is, it all works now, with different tires, it is functional, I just need to tow it 90 miles to Raindogs, and 90 miles back in a week..otherwise, I'll just borrow a better trailer

Thanks for aall of your help and suggestion guys! And LoudAl suggested I keep the Tillamook Special fenders..which I plan too, unless another set appears.

FB:H20 Fire extinguishers

I scored 2 refillable h20 fire extinguishers today. You simply fill them with water and pressurize them to 90PSI. They hold about 4 gallons of water and hold pressure for a while. Sorry both are gone.


I've already got one that I use to hose off my bike after muddy MTB rides. I figure some of you dirt bike guys could use it for the same thing. Or you could put out a fire, or you SO can use it to play swords with you (she would likely win)

Price: 6 pack of GOOD beer, or equivalent at Engles one Thursday.
Local Pickup only

That might work for some projects I have. Do you know if it can be bent and welded?

MSC book says...Excellent for making fasteners, fittings, wheels and parts.
This high strength alloy is heat treatable, and has fair formability and workbility. May be spot welded.

Metalworkers handbook says...The alloy in this series are heat-treatable and possess good combination of high strength and toughness, and in specific cases, weldability. Not resistant to atmospheric corrosion, so painting or cladding is recommended. Used primarily in aircraft and truck bodies.

My supplier quoted me 40 cents a square inch for new. I got it from Boeing surplus years ago for a song.

I have two small trailers - a flatbed and a three rail motorcycle trailer - if you guys want to borrow one if you can't get your Tillamook Special ready.

I think I need dibs on one of these. When we were teens, we used to do drive bys with those things.
