If you want something doing...

So you have, of course, been avidly following OLV posts since 2007 but you you haven't seen just what you need for the task that you have in mind. Seek no further.

Home-building trailers for bikes is fairly straightforward and you can use bought in components to make the job easier or the finished product more professional looking.

In my next post I'll be looking at trailer / chassis styles and readily available plans for them. Wheels tyres and tow-hitches will also come under scrutiny. While OLV doesn't usually dwell on kit not readily available in the UK, as it is very expensive to import whole trailers from the USA or Australia, these countries have a very developed self build culture and excellent small components can be mail ordered.
If you've already constructed your own trailer then I'd love you to email or comment with any advice and or pictures.
To wet your appetite, and until next time, I've included here some images of home-built trailers. Clicking an image will take you to it's home webpage.
