Trailer Hitch

Post by Charlie1Horse » Sun Mar 25, 2018 9:11 pm



Being a Patriot Guard Rider and soon to be a Ride Captain, I am looking for a trailer hitch for my 92 GL1500 to use for a flag mount. And being retired and on fixed income I am looking for a really good deal. If anyone has one they don't need I would like to purchase one. I have not found one that is affordable for me yet, I keep looking. I am in Jacksonville, Florida. A local one would be real nice.
Thanks for any help.
Russell

Dont you know anyone who can weld, if it will only be used as a flag mount, there is nothing to it.
If at first you don't succeed, hide the evidence.

I just thought I would try to find one first before getting my welding equipment out to fabricate something. If someone had one they didn't need I could buy it and someone else could make a little money and it would be a lot easier than building one myself. I am getting lazy in my old age. LOL but, thanks for the response anyway.

Hi--
I have one including all of the necessary wiring (trailer lights plug in). I do not have the post and ball, but they are very common (small autos use them). I just pulled it off my '91 GL1500.
The problem is that I am on Vancouver Island, BC, Canada, and must ship. How about shipping costs plus $100?
If you give me an email address, I will send pictures--It is a very good after-market one, strong, well-built, and most-importantly, it is well-secured to the machine.
Regards,
Darryl G.

You and me both Russ, I am sure someone is messing with mine, it never used to be this heavy.

Thanks for the replies but, I found one 2 hours away in Ocala so, I had a beautiful four hour round trip ride. Got it for $50.00 and also found a good set of OEM mufflers at the same time for $25.00. Now all I have to do is clean and paint the hitch and install it.
Thanks again and God Bless,
Russell
