I've recently acquired at Burley Flatbed trailer to pull behind my mostly '60 Raleigh Sports. The Conventional Wisdom is to attach a Rubbermaid box to make it more useful,:but those plastic storage boxes are so god-awful ugly I just can't bear to do it.
I'm trying to think of something appropriate to use as the load container. I've had some general thoughts like wood (probably too heavy) and fiberglass (too messy, and still plastic). There's a guy on the net that makes custom wicker baskets, but they're kind of expensive. Or I thought maybe I could make a little containing rack out of aluminum or even copper tubing (love that verdigris), although the lockable-box concept has a lot of appeal.
It's all vanity, of course, and I should stop thinking and get to riding, but I wanted to take a moment to probe the forum's collective thoughts.
