not my best side


« on: May 19, 2020, 07:58:16 PM »

Hi Its been a while since I posted on here. hope your all ok and keeping safe distance if your going out. me I'm home for another 4 weeks.
I have been keeping busy doing some work indoors decorating and working in the garage modifying my squires trailer.  looking for things to do just to keep the brain cell busy I am thinking of building one of these to tow behind my trike. just sorting idea's and designs at the moment. when I do I will start a Teardrop build page. any take care and hope to see you when its all clear.

Pity you didn't start it before I came to Spain, because the trailer I built for my trike would have been an ideal base for you?
I ended up leaving it behind in the UK, and my son found it for sale on Facebook 2 weeks ago?

An interesting project. 
 I have absolutely no use for such a thing, but have often thought about building one.

Check out  the teardrop uk page on fb, and have a look on google for a plco lightweight teardrop, they are very light and can be towed behind a trike, there are plans to be found via google with picture instructions.

Hi JJ Hope you and Rick are well. yes I like them but there are always big and heavy and towed by cars or bike trikes. that why im going to build a light weight one for the trike to tow looking at about 240kg unladen  weight.
