    Don't suppose you have plans drawn up for that trailer?
    1. k-moe
      Nope. I built it to fit the cargo box. There is a thread on ADVRider.com that has better info about building single wheel trailers than I could write up.

    That trailer is cool. Did you make that yourself? And those hand guards are life savers. Cool Bike.

      I did build the trailer frame in my garage. The hand guards are just there to keep the winter wind off my hands. They're a very cheap set with no metal bar at all.

    Sweet bike, I like the idea of having extra fuel on board too! Can you add more pics of the rack and fuel can? :-D

    My first post to you was heavily edited. Over written by 400 characters. Who's counting? Jack

    I had a red 750 Seca with the stock fairing. Sold it. A guy selling 2 Seca 750s for the price of half of one. Too many projects going at the time and passed. I love your "super deluxe PVC tool tubes"

    I just added a pair of LED spot lamps for daytime visibility/ extra viewing distance on country roads. Set up so they run independent of the headlights, they can be on as camp/work lights if needed.

    Very nice. PVC tool tubes...glad you cleared that up. At first glance I thought they were mini rocket launchers :)
