Introduction: Teardrop Trailer's by the Bicycle Surgeon

Hello
I deal in recycled bicycles, I believe all bikes should have at least 2 life's. So I get a lot of used stuff, like Kid's trailers , strollers, trailer bike's etc. I decided to try making a teardrop trailer. Well 1 has become 2 and now I'm seeing a pile of Burly, ll Bean, toys-r-us. older wagon's. What better to do with them than recycle them for a new life, And do it COOL First trailer is a toys-r-us frame. The second one is a LL.Bean frame

    could I use this as a passenger trailer

    That chopper looks perfect for a 2 stroke kit.....makes the trailer really light! I have been plotting a trailer build for a long time...these are a couple of my bikes...be posting soon

    This is great. I've built a traditional (see my instructable), and I'm constantly getting asked about making one for a bike our motorcycle.

    Nice work .I've made one out of sheet aluminun for an old Burly . I'll post a picture just for inspirational purposes as I didn't know about instructables at the time .

    You should make a step-by-step Instructable for one of these so someone else can make one too!

    im having trouble commenting and dont know if it came thru but can you email me deafdragonmike@yahoo.com regarding cost of the teardrop bike camper trailer and shipping costs? and describe the trailer and send pics. thanks. michael.

    What kind of frames are those? Backpack frames?
