Aaron writes – “This bicycle trailer is made from 1/2″ EMT conduit that is bent and brazed into a frame. It uses scavenged bicycle wheels, has a plywood cargo bed, and can be modified for any use easily. The frame alone weighs 15lbs, and with a hitch, plywood, and wheels it weighs 25lbs or so. It carries 200 lbs safely, and it can haul up to 450 lbs carefully.”Link.

  1. My father built somehting similar to this bike when I was young. We needed a way to carry our lawn mowers around to our lawn mowing jobs. Yours is much nicer. ours were made from the front and rear fork of an old bicycle.
