the main frame is an old car aluminium roof-rack, fitting the wheels was hard but i utilised the tube clamps that came with it (sorry i don't know the correct name of them).
the main axle was too weak so i changed it to an old steel tent pole,
and the cross piece at the front is also a section of steel tent pole.
the metal cage is a fire guard, it's held together with hose clips these are fully adjustable and reuseable.
Step 1: The Basic Frame
the central "T" shape is steel i tried the trailer without the "T" but the wheels were dangerously loose whaen any load was applied to the frame. not having the tools to drill through steel i had to improvise with hoseclips which are surprisingly easy to use and very strong.
the metal cage (brown colour) used to be a fire guard, i had to bend the pieces with a Vice and hammer but again quite easy to do.
from this angle its quite easy to note that both wheels are leaning out, i can't seem to do anything about this but it the wheels straighten when weight is put on the trailer.
the hitch, AAAAGH! horrible! its the handle from the top of a scooter forced onto one of the steel poles i've had massive problems securing it it basicaly hooks onto a "U" section i attatched to the bike it worked ok but rattled alot and actually fell off twice whilst in use(which i've since changed to a much safer system!)
Step 2: The Underside View
closest to the front i've slinted a piece of flat aluminium strip(used to be a rucksack frame) to the horizontal aluminium pole
Step 3: The Bad Hitch (now Improved)
it worked for a few weeks and i still think it would be a usefull idea for someone if they can make it more secure.
the main downfall for me is i could never secure it to the steel tent pole even with clamps it twisted and fell off, a simple bolt would have been fine.(but i don't have the tools)
Step 4: After the Paint Job
I've found after some use that "Bungees"(elastic travel straps)are the best way to attach stuff quickly, like gardening tools and bags, losse stuff i carry in a larger box then strapped down.
on this picture you can see the "drop down"
rear section i made (held with Bungees) but i found i never used it and it rattled alot even when tightly strapped
since this picture i have added front, rear, and side reflectors.
another idea i'm toying with is using a barrel to hold gear, and also making flat sides to the frame so i can advertise my business.
Hope you like my first Indestructable!
