It is a device that you mount in your receiver hitch so you can carry a motorcycle. It has a hydraulic jack so it does all the lifting. You secure the motorcycle with bolts through the footpegs and a strap around the front motor mounts. It's nice after a hard ride that has left you feeling spent, no lifting! Works great for SUV's or even trucks if you're not wanting to lift or ramp into the bed. There is more info on my webpage: http://www.moto-mule.com

So I built a ghetto little stand for it, and it was working so good...



The stove was puttin out the heat...




Just, unfortunately, too MUCH heat.



Going to try cutting the bottom off of another can and fitting it over this one to seal it up.

Looks like a very nice bike! I had to google that one, not seen one before. Send me a PM with the inside diameter of the axle and the overall length of it, and I'll let you know if I can make a trailer fit... thanks!

Honda Fat Cat, Yamaha Big Wheel. Good lookin bike fer sure! I saw a '78 XL350 conversion like that. Having ridden a BW, I'm betting they would be an absolute BLAST with more power.

The bike, not the kids. I designed and built the bicycle and wooden box.
That is really sweet, nice work. Any more photos of this?

Thanks! If you look up CETMA CARGO on the web http://cetmacargo.com/ you'll see that bike for sale. I designed the bike and built the first 10 for the guy that runs CETMA CARGO. It was a really fun project.

I totally don't need one, since my pickup truck works great, but those cargo bikes make me drool. Nice work!

I have a WWII jeep that needed a dummy machine gun for display, so armed with a few basic measurements-

I always thought the WWII M3 Grease Gun was sexy. So I built a dummy using measurements off a friends semi-auto version. Here's just before I put the grips on.
