Introduction: Trailer Ball Hookup
This is the completed trailer, the hookup is pretty self explaining and will change depending on your bike. I went with an ABS 1 1/2 in trailer tongue and filled it full of expanding foam. Strong but lite weight. parts needed will be
1 - 48 in. aluminum 1 1/2 angle bar 2- 13 in . tires from Harbor freight 1- 36 in threaded rod cut down to 26" for axle. 1- old hand truck.
1- 4" x 7 1/2 " x 1/4 " alum. plate for mounting trailer ball. This will fit on the Arms that are cut to 18" and mounted to the two metric threaded holes on each side of frame m
aking sure they do not extend past the frame on the inside and hit the wheel sprocket.
you will need a grinder to notch the bars around some welds and the wheel nuts.
The blue bin I found at Big Lots!. and it is BIG! 28" long x 16" wide x 18" deep, inside. 12.50 , a good price for that big a bin and it has snap over locks. I found plastic chain for safety chain more for deco but strong enough to get the job done.
the 1 7/8 trailer ball and hitch can be found on line at Etrailer but perhaps cheaper locally.
