Vulcan Trailer Hitch

Hey guys, as alot of you know, i have a custom trailer hitch on my Vulcan, and i do believe I may be the only one that does have a hitch for pulling a trailer with the VN750, i may be wrong though.

Anyway, I was wondering if there is anyone interested in repeating what I have??
If there is anyone interested in such a project, please let me know. I will be removing my hitch later this winter to have it re-painted. While it is off the bike, I will take detailed pictures of it, and measurements, and draw up a print for it.

I have been asked about my trailer and hitch a few times, but right now I'm in the process of moving to a new house and stuff and don't have time to mess with it. But later this winter I will get a print, pics, to those who are interested.

For now check my pics in my profile, see my bike and my trailer.

I will attach a few to this thread.

Peace.

Hidden hitch

Hey guys I had listed a topic about the hitch myself and Glenn designed and built.Hidden hitch. Glen built for me out of stainless he had around and her is a pic of it.Works great as I have hauled in 3/4 bike weight in delivery.Trailer weighs in at 87 #. I just didnt care for all that steel hangin on a bike. You can buy a hidden hitch for like $400. Way to high for my needs..All LED lights.Hitch on table is the $400 one.Again Thanks Glenn Moorehead..Yes member .. and a good friend.

I sure like the looks of that hidden hitch, and the fact you can remove the receiver from it. Don't suppose you have the measurements for that?
