You need to leave your self righteous "spelling stuff right" crap at the door. There ain't nothing right about what's going on in here lol

Thanks gentlemen! Chris, itll be at thaw, your welcome to throw a leg over it and see how she does in the dirt since you've only ridden it on the pavement so far.

Jumped back on the trailer project for a minute. I bent up some 1/2" square tubing to use as stiffeners down the side of the trailer. Its funny, ive bent up a good bit of tubing in my time, including multiple pulling tractor roll cages as well as a full custom cage for a Baja truck, and this stupid pair of pieces has been one of the most difficult things to get the height and bends right on hahaha

I had a little time between class time and a meeting tonight to do a little fab r' kating.

I drew up some plates for the "tongue" in 2D CAD and had the lab down the hall with the fancy plasma cam cut them out. I tacked and welded it up and Viola, we have... well idk, its still not much of anything lol.   

Also got the side brace tubes tacked in.

Shes coming along, but without having a real weight, shes feeling like shes gonna have some hips on her if you know what I mean. Not sure what my max loaded weight can/should be as there isn't much research on a swinarm mounted trailer. At least not any info that companies that build these are willing to disclose, so I guess we will have to play it by ear.
