Had to do some re-building and straightening out. Went for a test pull again. Not bad, but the hard shock makes it very bumpy.


For next years Afrika Burn I want to use my XR400 as a mutant vehicle to get around. (Gatvol of cycling  :grin:)
To be allowed to drive it around it has to be modified a bit to be 'visually' appealing. The speed limit is 10km/h so one does not have to consider the usual issues.
Anyway I was thinking of making 2x lightweight '  trailers' using bicycle wheels to tow in tandem behind the bike.
I just need to wrap my head around connecting them together and the attachment point to the bike.  Crucial is weight and stability.
Any ideas are welcomed  :grin:

A simple drop pin to the bike with a bolt on hook to the sub frame will do. Give the front trailer a simple spine running through to the rear where you can attach the rear trailer. just balance the weight on them and you should be fine.
