    That's very neat Ade, but I have to ask, are you sure it's within the one metre max width? Perhaps it's just the perspective of the photo, or my tired eyes...
    Also, technically, the lower a tow-hitch is mounted the less effect anything wayward (eg sidewinds, slide, puncture etc) that happens to the trailer can have on the bike; as an extreme example, try pushing side-to-side on the top of the sissy bar, then try using the same force on the swinging arm. The lower the better; preferably at or below rear wheel spindle height - having said that, it's just an observation, hope you don't mind.
    Cheers,
    Pete

    Looks like you've made a good job of that, Have you thought about making them for members with sporties who need that little bit extra??
