check out one in front of Rocky Creek Downunder  near Coolidge park. It has a collapsable tongue and straight trailing arms that pivot in the front and have coil overs in the rear. Pull a quick pin at the bottom of the coilover and the arm swings foreward and lays flat. Looks like it gets small, although not like Zens. I have pictures on my phone I'll have to email to a computer and upload.

That's a pretty cool folding trailer Nick!  It looks like it is pretty light weight too.  Do you know what brand it is?

Yesterday, I got a call from the guy who is welding on mine.  The frame is finished and he has floor pannels cut out.  I had him hold off on riveting the floor to the frame.  I'll do that after I have the frame painted.  I'll pick it up later this week . . . hopefully I'll have it completed and on the road in the next couple of weeks.

The one near Colorodo Springs is still showing on craigslist.org . . .

I have an identical trailer & am looking for spare parts, specs, etc.
 I am specifically searching for highspeed tires & a spare wheel E-2.50-C-8. The tires on it now are 3.50 x 8 4 plyTayfengs, but have no speed rating or even tire pressure markings. I think they may be made for an electric wheelchair.
 I would also like to find a basket & cover.
 Does anyone have info?

While I'm not the owner of the trailer, I was standing there when a couple of the guys were talking about zen's trailer. One of the club members owns a scooter shop in Red Bank and I believe someone said they had those tires in stock. As for a spare wheel, I do not know.  Try http://www.sceniccityscooters.com/ and see if they have them.

I haven't checked with Scenic City Scooters about the tires yet, but I've been told they can probably find me some and may even stock them.  I plan on taking them one of my wheels and tires some day and see if they have anything close enough to work as a replacement/spare.

I've got all the cracks welded and all the pins freed up in mine now and I have a new floor on it.  I still need to fabricate a bumper and install lights and a wiring harness.  As far as specs and spare parts and such, I've been looking for a while and there just isn't much out there.  Anytime I've found pictures of one for sale I've saved them, so I have a lot of pictures, but not much of anything else.  I've been thinking about someday trying to fabricate a basket similar to the original.

I still have it.  I still have to fabricate the bumper and add some lights.  It would really help if I could get some good pictures and the measurments of the bumper.  I'd like to have it as close to the original as possible.  ;D

I want a single wheel bad.... but this little suitcase trailer is awesome.  Looking forward to seeing it done up and rolling Zen.   8)

I had it "Done and Rolling" but never got around to fabricating the bumper and putting lights on it.  It was one of the many unfinished projects in my garage.  Digging through the ashes the other day, I found all that remains of it . . . which isn't much.   >:(

But it may not be a total loss . . . I found one for sale for $500 that is missing the tongue.

The tongue of mine is still intact, but warped from the heat.  Also, I had pulled the fenders off to have a friend try to plastic weld some cracks in them.  He couldn't fix them and I never went and picked them up.  So, if anyone needs fenders or a tongue for one, they ain't in great shape, but where else are you gonn'a find them?
