too far fetched?

I like the idea but would use a spare rear wheel without a chain instead of a cart.

It would track nice and be really simple to build. Just about any car could pull it.

Maybe you're not losing your edge... I call dibs on the patent.

So, if the steel workers/welders can build a rack, have them build a light 1 rail trailer.

yeah thats what I meant

something that you can clamp the bikes rear wheel onto and just have the front end clamped to the truck somehow

the chain and wheel would NOT be in motion

something like a one wheeled DOLLIE?

hey its my design! jajajaja

Any old boat yards in the area? Small boat trailers make good bike trailers.

I have one like this, all steel and rated at 600lbs. Me, 200+ lbs and a buddy, about 280lbs, stood on it attached to the truck to make sure it worked. I got it off CL for $100.

my truck is an 86 montero aka dodge raider to you guys up north

There is a thread on the hitch carriers if you want to read a lot, but here is my 2 cents. I have a nice hitch carrier that I have used quite a bit. I just went to Arkansas from Wisconsin with my XR600R strapped on the back of my Chevy Suburban.

If the highway is rough or wavy, I really felt the weight back there. I definately would not have wanted my XR650L back there.

I would not do this with an 86 Montero (My brother owned one). JMHO...

No need for anything(dolly/cart) in the back. It would just add to the risk of damaging it. Slap a spare wheel with a cheap tire on it and it should just follow you over anything without damage.

yup, weld toward comfy. front tie down tube goes into a mini receiver bolted to the hitch to keep from rocking.
