How to Make a Bike Trailer Out of a Wagon





Introduction: How to Make a Bike Trailer Out of a Wagon

This Instructable will show you how to Make an ordinary wagon into a bike trailer.

Step 1: Tools Needed

For this Project You need:
A wagon
A bike
Metal you Can drill (I used Matal from an old Bike frame)
Flat head screwdriver
Drill press
Normal drill (optional)
Bungeecords (optional)
Flags (optional)
Hacksaw ( you may need it)

Step 2: The Hitch

For My hitch i used a 12.5 inch aluminum pipe with holes the size of my bike bolts drilled in each side. Only 1 side of My pipe was flatted so I had to flatten the other side with a vise. But that depends on if your pipe is flattened. After you have your pipe all flattened out and drilled, attach the hitch to the back bolt on your bike.

Step 3: Preparing the Wagon

To get your wagon trailer- ready:
1st you might need to take of the handle.
2nd I recommend you drill holes for bungee cords on the sides of the wagon.
3rd I also think the trailer looks cool and is more obvious to cars when you put some flags in the back so... If i were you i would drill holes for flags in the back to.
4th I had to cut a small piece of my wagon off with a hacksaw... if something is bumping the tire you might want to try  cutting it.

(all these drilling recomendations are for plastic wagons only. I have never made one with a metal wagon, though you could probrably improvise to get the bungee cords on there)

Step 4: Hooking Up the Wagon

I cant say for you guys but for me all I had to do is take a pin out and slide it throughthe hole in the hitch back into its original placing.

Step 5: Enjoy Your New Trailer

I hoped this helped!! I mostly wanted to get the idea out there so you can improvise to cutomize it for yourself. This trailer has many uses for me i will use it on trash day to go pickin', and i will also use it for fishing.
