Postby Ron Dickey » Fri Apr 10, 2009 10:37 pm

I had rather wondered about motorcycles being part of this group and it just to be called Bike Travel trailers.
I have a freind who built a teardrop for his Motorcycle. He lives in near me and had pull it to Montana and back it contains a tent and is rather well built.

I found this wonderful pix when rumaging through Google images and thought I would share it here.

there is a entire nother world with motored bikes and trailers that needs to be touched.

Now, those are cool!, Ron!

Did you find any side or 3/4 view shots of those things? I've got something on the drawing boards that will blow you all away, but those are definitely fun & funky ... :thumbsup: ... I'd build one!

Thanks for posting them!

CHEERS!

Hi Grant,

Does the item on the "Drawing Board" have anything to do with your Swedish style VW trike? Haven't heard anything about that in quite a while.

Sorta ...

... kinda ...

... maybe ... :thinking: ...!

Still gathering parts, Steve ... but the design has definitely ... uhmmm ... evolved! It's really kind of exciting to see where this whole metamorphosis will end up ... but it will, without a doubt, turn some heads!

'Course, not much is getting done on anything until sometime after my back surgery, hopefully in May ... then it'll just be "wait'n'see" ... :D ...!

CHEERS!
