    Checking to see if anybody is interested in a receiver tow hitch for their talon I am personally building one for mine but it’s going to be a custom inch and 1/2 x 1 1/4” receiver style just to tow my bush tec trailer,It will be a simple bolt on application I don’t plan on towing over 400 to 450 pounds I can’t see the talon ever towing 1000 pound load safely with what’s back there to attach to

    It won’t be out of aluminum but trust me it is very small and simple it’s angle iron that attaches to the formed channel on the rear a arms and a plate that goes across it I can make it out of standard 2 inch receiver hitch but I don’t think there’s any reason to have such a large receiver back there I will not be responding to these post until Thursday night or Friday from now I’m on a pedal bike ride for three days ‍♂️‍♂️

    Sounds good. The 2" would be better because it is more universal. It would also allow to attach a pull hook if needed.

    The strongest towing point on the back of the talon is already there it is at the bottom of the a arms structure and it is basically a round steel loop just like that built into the frame towing off the lower frame unit is the safest way to tow The hitch that I’m building realistically is only going to be designed to total may be 500 pounds I thousand if you’re careful I will be towing at the most a 4 to 500 pound push check motorcycle trailer for extended camping trips

    That is a nice hitch that they made if I was you fellows I would just order that one there I was just going to do it if somebody needed one and that’s about what I was going to charge for mine I’m glad somebody has one available
