Motorcycle Single Tire Trailer

I have seen many pre-made Single tire trailer and I thought I'd give it a try using local material

Stuff I used are :
1-  1/2" ply wood for Trailer box sides
2-  wooden card board for Box body covering
3-  1" X 1"  wooden spars for Box skeleton
4-  metal sheet same used on File Cabinets for final box cover
5-  bicycle front fork and tire
6-  Socket wrench universal adaptor
7- 1" X 1"  steel square bar
8- 2 mm steel sheet for box bottom support
9-  Motorcycle  Brake/Parking light + two turn signals
10- Bolts ,Nuts ,Wood Screws
11- bicycle shock absorber
12- My good friend Sonny

<p>With all due respect, I would not attempt, or advise others to make this with the wheel you are using,</p><p>Bicycle wheels are NOT engineered to rotate at highway speeds!</p><p>Same goes for the tires/tyres.</p><p>Bicycle wheels are notoriously neglected, and are frequently found to have little to no grease in the bearings. </p><p>What size universal (socket) joint? Avoid cheap Chinese u-joints. Use Snap-on, Craftsman, etc.</p><p>Again, bicycle parts are NOT meant for sustained high speed use!</p>
I appreciate your concerns , <br>Your are correct , <br>this was not my first choice , this is why I made the wheel fork holder separate than the rest of the frame in order to replace the whole Fork/ Wheel assembly when a better/bigger wheel available ,I actually rushed completing the project just for the sake of seeing it in action ,I admit that more adjustments are required.. <br> <br>Thanks again <br>mbourhan <br>
