    So if you go fishing occasionally you need something to drag the supplies? I had a Honda ST70 we bolted a sidecar to… but our knowledge of side-car design was …NIL. Horrible thing! tried to throw you off at any opportunity, so after selling the bike and attacking the sidecar frame with a angle grinder (very satisfying )
    A better bike was required for cruising down the sand, enter a well abused RV90. Reuse the side car boat as a trailer with a new frame and a light tow ball mount. So as you can see the “chilly-bin” is sorted. Now need to figure out how to carry a rod? ( there is a second trailer for the Kontiki, yet to be completed )

    Hi petez1

    Try editing your post and uploading the image again after resizing it to less than 350kb in file size. Usually 1200 pixels wide or smaller is good.

    Here’s some info about loading pics onto the site. I’m keen to see what you have made.

    So lets try re-sizing?

    Its a 74(?) RV90. well abused by previous owners.
    You may notice the “Yellow road marking” painted frame. (free is better than cheap) The hi tech, stainless, ventilated mud guards… actually the remains of a deceased clothes drier drum. and various added accessories found surplus in the workshop… such as the coffin shaped chilly bin/trailer which follows the bike quite well within the limitations of the movement on the tow ball and cornering within the frames limits. In the context of the bike and its use as a tow wagon on the beach…Its a good start?

    And the tow bar makes for easy wheel stands when its “play time”
