Trailer is finished

So I finished the trailer today. My uncle did the final coat of varnish on Saturday while I was at work. Saturday I was unable to do any work on the trailer. I worked, helped another uncle to set up for a crawfish boil and then headed to dinner with a friend.

Today, I cut up some rubber to put between the decking and metal frame. Then I used carriage bolts to secure the decking to the trailer. I double nutted the carriage bolts to keep them from backing out. I checked the lights and everything works fine.

    I love it. The wood contrasts nicely with the orange! How does it tow?

    Honestly, the trailer is light enough that you can’t really tell it is behind you. I haven’t strapped anything down to it yet. I’ll probably pull the wheel bearings apart and grease them before loading anything on it for an extended trip. So far I have only towed it a few miles.

    Nice! Should tow great then. Now get entries of your bike being worked on up.
