Lightweight Bike Trailer From Rubbish

Introduction: Lightweight Bike Trailer From Rubbish

About: i make, mend and modify things from rubbish, whether found or donated, whilst travelling around these islands off the coast of europe

i had been using a trolley with tiny wheels that often flipped over and i wanted something  that i could move my stuff around  either on foot or behind a bike....
i wanted something that when not in use could fit in hand luggage
so i designed this trailer that breaks down by undoing three bolts into four lengths of tubing and the two wheels
and built it using locally found rubbish, namely a broken 3 wheel buggy, two damaged bike frames, and a sheet of plywood.

    Can you give your readers an explanation of what we're looking at? Did you make this, buy this, attach this. Look cool, I'd just like to know more!
