    Fantastic! I love it! It looks like an inspired homeless guy! Just kidding about that, but I think it's great! Now, I just need to figure out how to turn one of those into a sidecar!

    As long as you don't keep all your belongings in the cart, you don't look like a homeless guy!

    Great! Easy on easy off. I need more details. Do you have a close up or your hook up
    to the axle?
    I am a new member so forgive me for speaking and giving any view. :surrender:
    I am/was a bike fabricator by trade. At first sight I saw sides on your cart.
    (Dumb me the cart look is probably what you wanted) The size is great.
    Good proportion, great lines. I think your trailer/cart is something unique.

    I couldn't keep my hands off of it. (photo below)
    You said go ahead you can take it.:joker:

    Form follows function. Very utilitarian.

    turning right

    Yes Mountainman I was thinking that too! Would it not be better to mount it up over the back wheel to attach to seat post? Oh maybe not, the rear rack and tank are in the way.

    I have almost the exact same trailer and hitch. (no shopping cart, though)

    And I can give you a heads-up; the point that the tongue meets the trailer frame is a weak point. It'll start sagging after carrying some moderately heavy loads. It took mine nearly ten years before it got so weak that I felt I'd better do something, now that I think about it. So maybe it's not urgent.

    But I fixed it by placing an iron rod (perhaps 5/8 in. diameter) under the intersection and bolting with three U-bolts.

    It's great to be able to haul stuff. Have fun.
