I was driving along by Ft. McCoy the other day and saw this for sale and bought it right off.





I liked the wheels and the size thinking it looks alot like a trailer the bike can haul easy enough.  My bike hitch is even the same as the trailer hitch.  (I know it is not spot-on but those cost big money).  Anyway... it will get a US paint scheme and be used as a captured item.

Here is some history on them but essentially they were used by the US Army in WWII.

and lots of talk about them here

I drove it from point of sale about 90-minutes to home at speeds up to 60-mph and it handled it just fine.  Pretty happy with this find.   :)

Nice find Mike!  Let me know what my half of this project will set me back.  That will look good behind the cycle for some events.

That's a sharp looking little trailer Mike.
Can't wait to see it in some new paint.
