    Building a dining room table and my wife would like to incorporate some old turnbuckles into the creation. Does anyone have some old and rusted turnbuckles about the size of a two fists side-bye-side with about 3 feet or more of rod on either side? I need two..

    You could always build one of the Harbor Freight 4x8 trailers and put 2 or 3 chocks on it. I had one I built 10 years ago that my neighbor now has and it is still going strong. Just an idea. All of the ones I have seen for sale seem to run $300 an up these days. Occasionally there is a el-cheapo on graigs.

    Will consider that Marc.. but would more likely buy a bigger wheel quality trailer; see some on craigslist not too bad for $500-$650.

    Just wondering before we buy one of those if there are any ADV brethren with something laying around they have no use for

    I got a Shorelandr off Craigslist 1 year ago. Pulled it over 3,000 miles last year and it works great. 1 of them on Craigslist right now.

    I think it is a tad bit larger than the Yacht Club trailers and the three rails are staggered more than the Yacht Club trailers. 3 of them on Denver Craigslist right now.

    And no, mine's NOT for sale, will keep it a long time.

    They are all around $500, but I bet people will deal. :deal

    I have an older three rail and it has the 12" tires. It has done OK for me over the years but I fully agree that if you can find something with real size, like 14" tires it is more better. :thumb Of course, Like Me, mine was cheap and needed a little work. Best of luck.

    Many many thousands of of highway miles and never any problems. I think bearing buddies and quality bearings are the key. :D

    Yeppers, It helps so you don't have to pull the wheels and hand pack the bearings. Just give them a shot of grease every now and then.

    I fill them up with grease before every long trip- it's sort of a reservoir tip for your bearings. :D Hubs are always cool to the touch even running those little wheels at 80mph for hours...

    :nod This trailer used to be for my boat- it would get submerged at least once a day. The bearings are still going.

    It's not officially ready to sell yet....but it's a sunny day, so I'll throw out a feeler and try to get some input from folks to see what a reasonable asking price is. I'm thinking $1500 is ballpark, and seems more than reasonable to me - especially for a local sale to a fellow inmate. If it goes on the Flea Market, thought about giving myself bargaining room and starting closer to $1700. Am I close, or way out of whack?

    This is the '92 that I built up last year, but different. It's titled and plated, but no longer has the full dualsport kit. Same frame, engine, and fork externals (with '00 internals now). Last year it got new front wheel bearings and new steering head bearings, and a TwinAir filter, as well as an RX XSO x-ring chain and new sprockets (all still on it).

    The suspension, fenders, seat, gas tank, stator, bars/controls, 35w XR headlight, and rear wheel are from the 2000 XR600 I bought to fix up.

    The '92 is essentially back to being a stock XR600, but with a brake light switch. Needs a mirror and horn to be back in compliance....rear tire is not DOT, front is a D606 w/ 4mm Michelin UHD tube.

    For those not familiar with the bike, follow the link in my sig line for the '92, it will show the story.

    Blake,

    I'm not in the market but I think you could easily get that money for your XR on craigslist... Take lots of nice pictures and make sure you include them in the craigslist ad (use html, not craigslist's crappy & very limited image hosting)

    With older bikes like that, condition is everything, and as we all know, your bikes are meticulously prepared. Hell, if it had an electric start, I'd buy it as a perfect loaner bike! :rofl

    Exhaust looks a bit dumpy though... can you bike up an aftermarket cheap?
