    Sometimes the asphalt peals off of the cobbles

    Or the streets just try and swallow a bus.

    All those shiny new parts....nice...now if free wheeling and improved fuel economy was your worry I'm sure you could haul a couple TY80's in something like this:

    I’ll get things back on track here before this turns into another Mopar thread.....:D

    Built the bed frame in two halves so I can sleep in there with the bike inside on solo trips, then when the Boss comes we yank the bike out and make the double bed. Have the bike in there to decide where to drill and anchor the wheel chock and tie down points.

    My trailer for that past 25 yrs or so has been a 4’x8’ folding style that is the same as you would get at Harbor Freight (mine came from Canadian Tire up here). I had originally mounted 1/2” marine grade plywood to the deck and painted it. It has lasted the entire time.

    But alas, as the years piled on, it became more of a pain to fold it up and wrestle it into a standing position against the wall inside my garage. So... time to lighten the critter up!

    I removed the back/folding half of the deck and the rest of the plywood , then moved the axle forward about 12”. An aluminum loading ramp was re-purposed as the bike rail, and a hitch mount luggage rack that I picked up for $18 now lives as gas can carriers on the trailer.

    All in all, it cost basically nothing to revamp the trailer, and it’s about half the weight compared to before. Pulls great and easy to stand up in the garage. (The rail pops off by removing two bolts)

    So the slow van build is making some progress, still waiting for the mattresses we ordered two months ago!!! Just finished building more shelves yesterday, most things now have a place to get stored. Have three weeks holidays coming at the end of the week and even an event to go to!!! Only ten hours away....small price to pay for living in paradise.

    I always thought those were neat. Probably not bad for short range hauling.

    I found this on the local buy and sell, it was set up to take a big cruiser and a couple of pit bikes to Daytona. I extended the side rails that were meant for the pit bikes and put my 2 toys on. I like the 3 rail setup, it's easy for 1,2,or 3 bikes. Don't mind the death grip on the bikes, I loosened the straps before we left, a buddy was a little over zealous in tightening them up!

    The birch is for a craft project of some kind, there are some smaller pieces in the truck for the same purpose.

    We've been needing a shelf/bar on the side of the bus for awhile. Then a buddy of mine
    shows up with his Moto trailer awhile back that had one and it rocked.
    Guess I might as well pull an old $$$ #libtech off the wall, drill some holes through it and add a little color to Black Betty. Gotta be up there on the "world's most expensive shelfs" list. [​IMG][​IMG]
    Drilling that first hole was painful. But WTF, it's never going to be ridden again, it's hanging on the wall doing nothing. Make a shelf!

    Put a green cross on both sides, and that could be the sales counter.:D

    I have all the snowboards I've ever owned save the first one; a Burton Elite 140 (you know, the one that was wood with the rubber bindings like a water ski? It even had holes in the nose for a rope, like the old Snurfers had). That said, I can't think of a better use for your old 'board. :thumb

    Glad I kept the bike carrier. No chance getting the Beta in the bed with the cap on.
