Default Motorcycle trailer build thread!

My wife and I have decided we won't be buying a new motorcycle for touring so I got on the hunt for a trailer to pull with my bike, not wanting to drop the $1500+ for a custom trailer I decided to build my own. All my searching the web about homebuilt trailers led me to harbor freight kits modified to work with a bike and a bunch of other ugly contraptions that I didn't deem worthy to be towed behind my bike, I went to the drawing board and along the way I saw this


So I modified the design to include an onboard air compressor to run the air ride system that's comprised of two kenworth sleeper air springs as well as the height control valve for the sleeper, the compressor will fill an air tank I removed from a peterbilt truck and will have a hose to fill tires, an air mattress, or whatever else I may need air for. I spent today building the main part of the frame and so far here's where I'm at

So what happened? Sturgis is coming. Hope your still working on it.

I bought and rebuilt one myself back in '03. Still using it. Plan to haul it to Sturgis with me again this year. When I built mine and went in '03, it was the only one I saw. When I went back in '05, I saw at least 5 copies of varying degree.

The year I built it...


Sold it, bought it back and getting it road worthy for this years trip...


my favorite feature of the trailer is the swiveling hitch. It's setup so the hitch can spin around a full 360 deg. Most folks are ok with the swivel the ball provides, but in an extreme emergency situation I was still afraid a bind might force me off the road or into traffic problems if I couldn't lay it down in a quick turn.
Exceptionally extreme situation, I know... but I like the option. "Better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it" kinda thing.



I like to make fun of my trailer queen friends. "You trailer'd your bike? I bike'd my trailer!"

Thanks man! Yeah I had to have all the chicken lights haha. I've actually got 3 more to mount up high on the tank so it looks like a mini fuel tanker going down the road. All the wiring is hidden in the trailer frame too so it looks extra clean.

Nice, clean work there Loudpipe. Probably best you missed out this yr. anyway. 75th was entirely too crowded to even enjoy the scenic rides.


I do envy you those larger tires. Never had a problem with mine... but I do keep fresh grease on me at all times to keep those "bearing buddies" juiced up.
