    Anyone build their own trailer hitch????

    I am looking for ideas on building trailer hitches for my two road bikes. One is a 1986 Kawasaki Concours and the other is a 1996 BMW R1100RT. What would you have done different or changed in your design? Pictures of your build would also be nice, if you can post 'em. Input from those who have done it, would be greatly appreciated!
    I have all the tools, mig welder, chop saw, etc. and the know-how to use 'em.
    Thanks!
    Roger

    I've built a few, but they were all for Harley's, so don't know if any advice I have would help you.
    I made mine very much like the McHitches that are sold commercially. You might look at the hitches on their web site to get some idea of how to fabricate one for yourself.

    I've done so much with so little for so long ... Now I can do nearly anything with almost nothing.

    Have you built any hitches 2010 and newer for a Harley bagger? If so, do you still have the drawings you work from? Like to build my own and save me some money.

    No ... The hitches I built were for the earlier models, previous to the frame change. Sorry.
