Adapting a Kendon trailer for bicycles...

This afternoons project:











It currently won't fold as it sits due to the receiver hitch. At first we thought we would just weld the nuts on the bottom side to make it easy to remove for storage, but now we are going to cut some material away on the hitch structure and then cut a hole on the tread plate in the folding part so it will then fold over the hitch.

It's very stable as it is because this bike rack uses a bolt to attach to the receiver, but the addition of two small straps for and aft will make it sit perfectly.

Both bolts in the receiver go through support beams in the trailer, too.

Maiden voyage this weekend.

Oh, the first pic shows a disassembled Thule roof-mount Sidearm. We were going to try to adapt that somehow to just sit on one motorcycle rail, or maybe just take the Sidearm itself and use that to hold the bicycle in the motorcycle chock itself. Turned out I had that 2" bolt-on receiver hitch laying around, as well as the two bike tray rack, and that was MUCH easier to do. It also let even the closest of the two bikes be further from the motorcycle on the other side by a little, which is good because otherwise the bicycle handlebars could conflict with the motorcycle handlebars.

In this setup, I can haul *two* bicycles and a motorcycle, too. That's way better than the other adapted way since that would have only been one bicycle capable.
