This trailer is a hodgepodge of the simplest, no-weld trailer components found on Instructables, friend's trailers, and frustrations via trial and error at our warehouse (shameless self promotion - www.hammertimeprojects.org
) The goal is to make the trailer accessible to anyone who can get a hold of these basic tools and materials...Tools
(borrow from a friend
-Hacksaw (angle grinder and miter saw optional)
-Powered drill with steel bit, 1' wood bit, Phillips bit
-1" Conduit bender
-Calipers (optional)Materials(acquire at a used building materials store, bike co-op, and construction site dumpster.)
-15' or so of 2x4
-6' or so of 1” diameter conduit
-2 any size bike wheels (front or rear)
-1' of angle iron (bed frame works great)
-busted bike tube
-2 large hose clamps
-heavy duty staples (optional)Note!
you will find there are no exact dimensions in this Instructable - this is not because we didn't measure anything, but rather to let one build the trailer based on its function and to allow one to incorporate materials that may be laying around.
