Boat trailer conversion

Had a nice galvanized jon boat trailer just sitting so added a 3/4" deck 12' long. Mounted a Tractor Supply 4 ft Wide tool Box (Craigslist) bolted a wheel chock. Use a "Handy Industries " rear Support to lift rear of bike. All fastners are Stainless 3/8" so a 9/16 ratchet fits every thing. Since picture taken have moved Gas Cans to each side of front tire and added a large cooler to the Front. Next plans are to mount pedestal boat seats and a 12v adapter to the Rear of the trailer to provide a comfortable place on Race day.

Long trailer tounge allows another Bike in the bed and the tailgate can be down. Also easy to Jack knife into a tight space at the Hotel

Not counting the Trailer about $200 so far.

All you really need was to add a "rail" down the middle. I did that with my Jetski trailer, and my ZX-12R rolled right up top in between the two JetSkis. Strapped the gas tanks on the front, and took off.

Worked GREAT.

Nice conversion that you did though.

Great Quote - One would think that the Secret Service was smart enough to get serviced secretly.
