Thanks for the compliments and for the welcome. Will post some pics of the interior soon. I reallllly love this van because of all the compliments I get when I drive it....I never get compliments in my regular daily drivers.

Very cool setup. I love the bike. At first glance, I thought it was a Harley-Davidson project, but the bike is cooler.

Pfffttttt. A trailer that looks like the truck towing it? It'd never work.

Looks good, but I have a few questions.

Hows the drag on the trailer, the way you have the front blocked out it kind of looks like it would create a lot of drag, also the tongue weight seems to be heavy.

Im just asking because those are some issues Ive been looking into for my trailer project and I noticed these issues in your pics.
