Ironman, Thanks for the response! Bummer, sorry to hear that you never made it to production, looked like a great piece of engineering and fab work. I have been looking at various designs to fab my own but 5 kids, running a business, and helping folks in my church don't leave me with much spare time. I was hoping you would have the "magic" answer...you know "send the money here and I'll send you a hitch kit".
God Bless and Ride safe, David
