I wouldnt know where to begin to even attempt making one

if I can find one cheap, I will buy it. If not we might have to take a wack at making one.

If you need a picture of one let me know, I have a 77 Hondo on a CalWest trailer out of Fresno.  Mine is made out of square tube with a little bracket welled on the end that attaches to the bow hook.

Cant find a pic of one because I dont know the "Official Name" of it. Thats why we are playing ...Name that part!

Just kidding, thanks for the help all!

I would make my own but I actually want it to work right!

I will Measure and send you a PM. That would be cool if you could get me one and I could pick it up on the 1st when I am down there. I would pick it up myself but my luck is that they will be closed or have burnt down by the time I got there.

I dont even want to know the man hours that went into the prep work on the trailer, that thing is awesome.
