    Yes, the hub is welded to the end of the lower tube that is mounted to the frame and the shaft is on the swing arms

    Looks like a center release with two swing outs, that's an awesome setup.

    It is split in the middle, left is the tire carrier and the right side is for fuel / cooler, it is a nice setup, weight is distributed to each side hinge and it has a short swing

    noticed water and ice getting stuck in the hub, and possibly leaking in over time.
    so I came up with this idea in the middle of the night actually lost sleep over this). its a latex glove folded over and stapled. easy FREE and should work for now!

    Hey Adam here is my Craigs list find, and what I had to do to get it installed, I had to fab the hub (missing) and decided to reinforce the frame mount area.
    Made these to slide into the frame and support to the frame.

    Not so much a tire carrier, as it's a "holder" if you will.

    How thick is the tubing everyone used? I tend to go way overboard on everything and would love to cut some cost in material.
