Vintage motocross is another of my passions........here's a '75 CR125 Elsinore going for a ride in the back of my '74. My avatar has my '74 hauling my '73 CZ400.

:D

I get so many thumbs up when folks see me going to the races in a time machine.......1974 620 hauling nearly same vintage MXr's...lol.

If that didn't squash the backend of your nice 521 pickup, I actually suspect you could get that load moving on flat ground, but you would have very little for brakes, if by some miracle you were able to get it all moving faster than 30mph, you would have nothing for brakes, zero, you could push as hard as you can on the brakes, and nothing would happen.

 

I have done something like this before, I put 2 cord+ of green fire wood on the back of my datsun and trailer, I could get it moving easy enough for moving 5000lbs or more, but I had no brakes at all on the hiway, I got that load home and never did that again.

 

I have hauled 2 ton with my work truck, one on my flatbed, and one in the trailer, that was nothing compared to that one load of wood I hauled home that day.

Pretty cool..I'll bet a lot of yuppies driving trucks with 3 foot beds have AHA! moments when they see little trucks doing work like that!

 

Only thing is...I wouldn't want to be behind you on a mountain pass with those suckers loaded down like that! :D
