Vertical motorcycle carrier unit
I went outside this morning around noon and the sun was still behind some big redwood trees. It was damp and cool out chilling me though quickly, so I went back in and warmed up to give the sun some more time and then went out and tried it again.
It was still cool, but I was determined so I slowly got to work on things.
Working on the lever bars
Testing it out
Once the holes were drilled I bolted the carrier together to see how it looked and worked.
I tend to over build
I welded a small piece of pipe inside the bottom piece, so it won’t crush from the bolt getting tight and added that spacer on the top to mount the bracket on.
No box hitch
I made the unit this way as I don’t have a slide in box hitch or I’d done it different maybe.
Checking the fit
Cooling fast and more testing
The day was cooling down as the sun went behind the mountains to the west.
I put my motorcycle away so it wouldn’t get wet from the night’ dew.
Cat and I get the mail
I needed to get my brother’s mail so the cat and I took a walk over to his place to get the mail. The cat was sniffing something there that was getting her attention. Maybe another cat in her territory. The thing with all the green on it is a limb that fell off a big redwood tree when the wind was blowing.
Tomorrow I’ll try and get the engine mount bracket built. That’s the part that the bike will sit on just under the cycles engine.
