    What do ya do when you have $00 and a project that require $$. Just build something that doesnt require any money. Built this for dragging around the swap meet. I think I am going to leave it 'as is'. LMK what you think! Thanks

    love it!

    i used to work at a plant nursery that used red wagons, but looks like you've tricked yours out with cool little spoked wheels.

    Heh heh heh... Cool wagon.

    Not to hijack the thread or anything... I'm still new here and learning how to search the forum but, have many people here done "pull behind" bike wagons? I was thinking something along the lines of a single axle wagon/box with a goose neck tongue to a type of "ball" hitch near the seat post...

    Yep, just hacked two decks, bolted on the rear deck to the original holes in the wagon, Then the front is new and wider for turning. It is just bolted on with one bolt. The handle is mounted by 2 eye bolts welded on the front deck and on the handle and help together with a climbing rope hook thing.
    I was going to paint this but i think I might just clear coat it and drag!

    No, it's light enough it just follows behind you.

    Here's one I wish I would have bought. I passed on it for $60.00. I've never seen another one.

    I kick myself for not buying it. I'd already bought two bikes that day. If I see it again it will come home with me.

    Man, I've never seen wagons like those. Both of those wagons are cool.
