Step 1: It was a dark and stormy night, I was all alone, and then it went quiet, very quiet...
Actually I got a call from my son in the day, "my bike just died and it won't start again", yes lad it's called "seized" and it does go kinda quiet, it's what happens when the Yamaha autolube feature packs up, and so was born the need for the "one man bike towing cradle".
Step 2: The story continues..
So after some chitchat with young Karl (a colleague) who described the contraption he used, I came up with the following
Step 3: Requirements
2. a welder
3. angle grinder or cutoff saw,
4. 9 Metres of 1cm thick dropper bar (used in the building trade)
3m for the ramp
6m for the cradle
5. 1 Metre of steel tube, I used a 900mm rectangular 25mm X 40mm cos I had it.
