Bike Trailer

I have wanted to make a bike trailer for larger items like recycling trips, straw bales or anything to big to carry in my backpack.
35 bucks worth of wood and angle iron
20 bucks on pipes, clamps and a swivel caster
I had tubing, bike wheels and screws laying around.

Trailer hitch made from 3/4" galvanized pipe, four pipe clamps, a swivel caster and thick tubing to protect the frame from damage.

Six1.5"x2.5" studs and angle iron.

Angle iron cut to 6" long, slotted for wheels and drilled mounting holes.

A swivel caster makes a great trailer hitch.

Trailer frame assembled with wheels.

Plywood bed attached, the cart is 30"x63" and weighs at least 50 lbs.
