A m/c trailer & the ZX10R

I'm looking to buy a Harbor Freight Trailer and finish off some of the crude joints and strengthen some key areas.We have several on site welders and this could be easily done.
Buy some wood and finish out the floor,wheel chock and secure some tie downs in the corners.
Heres a link to what Harbor Freight has to offer.

What are you guys using as trailers?

wpbzx-10, thanks for the info.I'm leaning towards the 12 inch wheels.Easier on the frame of the trailer,take a heavier load if I decide to use it for other trailer reasons.Thanks again!

Yikes!. Tiny wheels and Chinese made. I see those things occasionally, doing their little dance side-to-side down the freeway. A trailer should have a minimum 13" wheels IMO. Around here (and this is SoCal..Nothing's cheap) you can get a brand new 5X8 Carson etc.. trailer for $500. Much better .

I just bought a BARELY used pretty much new 5X8 foot for $600 off of craigslist. It came with the 2X8 inch flooring, a 4 ft. ramp / gate, and 15 inch wheels. I'm not sure how much you are paying, but I think you can buy a good used trailer pretty cheap...and not have to reinforce any of the welds. Just my opinion though.

Thanks all! I went to Lowes and Home Depot and found their 4x8 trailers with gate/ramp. And they start at $750 so I'm just trying to look at alot of options.

I use a Haulmark (enclosed 16') but then again we are usually trailering at least one each for me, my wife and the son.

I have used a small one we built ourselves (roughly 4x6') to trailer the CR 125 and even the SV 650, but I think the 10R is a tad longer and wouldn't quite make it (both of the others are rather a tight fit).
