The trailer started out as a square metal frame that I hauled out of a skip. Last week I had a mate weld on 4 sections of angle iron on the corners (there squint - thats my mates welding
) and a frame around the top.
When I started building trailers last year (yes iv'e gone a bit trailer mad also
) I hunted high and low for some small type of ball hitch like that on a car. Not being able to find anything suitable at the time I settled on a universal joint....
As you see the U-joint is attched to a towing frame I made for around my back wheel.
How it looks hooked up to my BIG trailer...
Since these pics of the U-joint were taken I have managed to get hold of a nice little ball hitch
I still use the tow frame around the back wheel of my bike as im not a fan of the seatpost or sidearm towing arm.
I'll get a few clearer pics of trailer & towing hitch done once complete
