That is pretty slick. I saw a similar homemade system to work with a small trailer by a guy who was older and had bad knees but still liked to drag race. Instead of the wheel chock to keep the bike stable, he built a set of "training wheels" that he bolted to brackets he added to the bike and then used a remotely controlled winch to pull the bike up on the trailer, essentially what that setup above does. Very cool. It would be something I'd consider if I hadn't come across a hitch carrier strong enough to handle the weight of my 350 lb Honda 450 restomod.

Wonder how much that sucker is? Pretty cool though.

I wanted one a few years ago. I did not think it was too bad. Maybe $3500 for one with a steel bed. Aluminum bed might have added $500. I am sure it is a good bit more these days.
I wanted one that would go on a Ford Transit cut away. Then I could have a bike hauler on the weekend and a work truck during the week.

Yeah, it very expensive if you are just using it recreationally. For a shop what does bike delivery or for someone who needs a multi use bed, it is worth it.

I can certainly see a shop getting their investment back pretty quickly, and gain a ton of customer confidence in the process.
