I built this to handle the 300 lbs my Superglide presented. 2500 lbs 12v ATV winch ($50 HF) few pieces of 1/8 plate, 1” pipe, 1 1/4 pipe, small flat bar and made my own hitch pin and a couple of pullies. Have less than $100 buck in it and works great.

It’s not what you’ve done that commands respect, it’s what you do.

The few weeks ago I unloaded my drill press off the back of my truck and carried it into the shop. A couple days later my back was bothering me so I looked up the specs and found it weighs 227 lbs. It doesn't seem like very many years ago that 227 lbs would have been something I could quite easily handle ..... I'm only 57 but I guess it's time for me get a little smarter too. I should probably hang a pulley from my garage ceiling and use the winch on my quad to unload my hitch.

I few years ago, I " manned up" removing my super glide in 1 piece...

Went into surgery the following week to repair a hernia... Thats that last time I did that... Up till this past year, if I needed to remove, I broke it ( Superglide ) down to as many pieces as possible... Head...Swivel...2 way tubes...base...rails.... [emoticon]. Live And Learn
