Good Morning All, Frank, I have all the axles and most of the pieces. I am still missing one set of U Bolts that was sent wrong, and for some reason they didn't send any spring mounts. I might find some this Am early at the local Tractor Supply store. Other then that I have a good friend that I grew up with that we trade back and forth with, if I need help he comes over and vise versa. Rail, thankfully the rain HAS stopped!! so the big push will start today, hopefully the axles will be in by the end of the weekend.

Terry,
Do you have enough room for suspension movement? It looks awful tight. For center caps, get the stainless ones, none of the chrome plated ones stay unrusted, even with wax on them. Also measure your center hole diameter, there are a number of different diameters.
Looks good on the ground without the blocks.
Frank

Stripe the rims orange and black or whatever colors your bikes are. Depends on what graphics you do the outside of course, but could work

Hi Frank, right now the trailer is a little off camber with the weight on the side that the pic. was taken, plus I have to put the last axle in, when done there "should" be 3" of bump space. Lynne, We are still up in the air on graphics, should be decided by spring (I hope). The inside (pretty sure) is a combination of light / dark gray and black with an orange high light (Harley colors) same with curtains. Raining here today so spent the morning going thru new RV's looking for ideas.

Good Morning Bap, The plan today is to finish welding, so then I can move it to more level ground, when I parked it there and then tore it apart, I had leveled it up to build, I didn't think about that being an issue when setting it down on tires. Getting set up now to weld and waiting for the sun to come up. I'll try to get more pics, saturday I didn't get pics, was focused on getting the axles in, in one day, (only had one good weather day, and help). anxious to make sure that I have enough "bump" clearance.

Terry,
Good morning to you, when you are checking for clearance, don't forget to check for side clearance for the tire scrub when you are making a tight turn. You would be surprised on how much the tires deflect when making these turns.
Frank
