Weird Trailer in DUCATI.MS

You know there was a picture of a small stationwagon that had a 916 shoved into the back end of it on the DUCATI.MS. I cant remember the name of the thread but it was a general thread about trailers.
It was a pic of this 916 style Ducati leaned over and shoved into a stationwagon with special posts welded to the floor of the wagon to keep it from laying on the plastic.. Funny pic.
This might be an option for you ... NOT>>>>>

Yepp.

A friend of mine converted his old Volvo 245 and transported the Duc in it. This was version 1.0.. He put in ambulance style rollers after that. You still need nerves of steel to lay it down on the steel frame.

I got this one from Harbor Freight

A little higher price, but has a higher weight capacity and 12" wheels and still folds. I am replacing the plywood deck with aluminium diamond plate.

How do you secure the bike to it? Do you use a wheel chock ? I like the ebay one as it had the rail, wheel chock and lights included. I've heard good things about the Harbor Freight and it was going to be my first choice. If I use a Baxter chock with the Harbor F do I need to use ties downs on the front? BTW The Volvo is insane.

So you put that stand on the trailer? I'm impressed.

Did anyone mount a Condor or Baxley to a trailer like this? And how would I do that - just bolt it through the plywood?
