Trailer is finished and other stuff....

Yesterday morning dawned bright, clear and cold. Despite a sore back from working around the farm and getting ready for winter, I decided to finish up the trailer and got started around 9 AM. A little welding, and a lot of cutting and grinding, yielded a trailer ready for paint around noon. The wife had gone to town and bought a couple cans of Rustoleum gloss black and even though it was really too cold to paint, there wasn't much choice as the trailer couldn't sit outside with bare metal. In the middle of painting, Paul (OC) called and said we needed to meet in Banks, both to hand off the project scrambler and to talk about the Baja race with he and Luke. So finished with the rattle cans, rolled it back in the shop and off we went to meet with Paul and Luke.

Old man with grinder;



The center tire rack is wide enough to hold the front tire of most cruiser bikes;



The combination of wide and narrow rails is a bit odd, but who cares?



Painted and ready to haul!



The finishing touch will be some kind of tool box or storage unit that bolts on the tongue, will keep an eye on Craigslist for just the right piece.

The wife and I met with Paul & Luke early in the afternoon and after lunch and a long talk about Baja, we headed home with Paul's trailer and Honda CL350 Scrambler project. The Scrambler is next up for shop time, we are planning to make it a running bike to sell for more cash to work on Team Outta Sight's Baja SL350. Stay tuned.
