BoB Trailer "Better than New" !
« on: December 09, 2023, 07:33:59 am »
Hello all,
After 4+ decades of touring I am hanging up my helmet.
All of my gear will be posted here over the next few weeks.
BoB Trailer
Complete "frame off" restoration and upgrades.
There was nothing mechanically wrong with the trailer but it had a lot of scratches and just didn't look as good as the rest of my gear.
My touring rig has been bomb proof and is over built, erring on the side of reliability and durability over featherweight components, I did the same here.
I completely disassembled it, bead blasted the original black powder coating off down to bare metal.
Frame and yolk were internally flooded with Boeing Boeshield T9 for corrosion resistance.
Bore scope in the tubes looked great, this was just a precaution and I had the materials on hand , so why not do it?
Then I primed it ready to be sprayed to match my bike. (still in primer)
The stock wheel was a generic 24? spoke with a blah hub and QR.
I built up a velocity 32h wheel for it with custom ordered WheelSmith spokes and a Shimano gen-hub for additional charging capability and got a Salsa QR for it.
Original wheel is also included as well as a spare tube.
It is also fitted with a Schwalbe touring tire with thorn resistant tube.
All of these parts are brand new as I have not needed the trailer since the rebuild (and it is still in primer paint)
This is currently in Massachusetts. Base pick up price is $450. Contact me and we can work together on shipping
I can send pix if you are interested
