Gear Talk: Trailer hitch by The Master

Above you see the work of master machinist, Mike Melvill.  He has been doing some very cool work for us to get the Greenspeed tandem up to speed.  We needed another hitch for the third rig, not knowing what vehicle we might use to tow The Hound around town.  Mike has been keen for some projects, and we have been the most fortunate recipients of his skill and generosity.  This beauty is milled from solid aircraft-grade aluminum.  It's only a couple of ounces heavier than the OEM unit featured below in comparison.  For all the beauty and strength, the couple of extra ounces are worth it, don't you think?  Schweeeet.
