Trailer Lift

Having bought two 125cc scooters to pootle around on while away with the van, we needed some way of carrying them around, hence a trailer. We often drive and ride as well, taking one scooter on the trailer while riding the other, but when we aren't off with them, we needed somewhere to store them and we didn't have anywhere easily accessible with the space. So we made a hoist to fit in the garage and lift the trailer up out of the way. 

There's lots of examples of these on the internet, and this is ours, built from 5cm angle iron, steel rope and an off the shelf 250kg electric hoist, the trailer being 130kg unladen.
