Bike add ons

Cycling, trains, walking. This is the place to talk about how good or bad cycle routes are, mention great train journeys, talk about car sharing schemes or husky travel. Anything in fact that is about transport that is a little alternative.

Does any one know where I can find instructions to make bike add-ons? I want to make some trailers that I can attach to my bike one for passengers and on for cargo.

Instructables.com has a lot of different plans for bicycle trailers, for example:

i tell you what you can get and adapt,
from your local garden centre, or diy specialist, you can get 'log trailers', and the are pull along trailers, but the handles come of, and then can be fastened to quad bikes etc, and i have seen them being towed behind bikes, as they can be adapted by buying a small lightweight towing hitch that can be fastened to the rear of you bike.
