It looks like the long bars might go from the back of the towbar bracket to where the pannier bracket bolts onto by the seat? this would give extra support, it proberbly wouldnt take much to actually make one, might be a lot cheaper, there very expensive for a little bit of metal.

Just seen this listing on ebay, it has a towbar fitted and might give some ideas as how to make one.

Hey Colin,
Classic Industries is just up the road from me.

If you want, I can go and find out more information about the towbars if you wish.

@ normanmarina.

Went and saw the guy at Classic Industries today. He wasn't saying much about the mounting points as I would think that people go there and pick his brain and make their own. There is no doubt he would be more forthcoming with help if someone actually bought one from him!

They are well made and have all of the bits (SS bolts, electrical connections, zip ties, 50mm tow ball etc).

From what I could gather, what badgerdid said is correct. They appear to mount to the rear foot pegs and also the pannier bracket bolts by the seat.

He said that you never attach the towbars to the swingarm
(he has seen a few).

But the trailers he sells...wow, they are spectacular. Ice boxes, disk brakes, swivel hitches (so you can actually lean into a corner), lots of colours, SS fittings. LED lights. Brilliant.

I hope this information helps.

I recently purchased a towbar for a K100rt from fellow member Rendrag.
very friendly service and plenty of good advice ,
have been fiddling with it today 
my 87 RT and 89LT seem to have the same mount points.
, so with some minor adjustment will be able to anchor it to the LT.
most of the aforementioned info sounds fairly correct, so it will be mainly pics to add.
one difference to note will be the ABS unit . no great issue ,some minor adjustment of the brake line on the right side unit.
 Damien already had it all clued out for me.
 ( even colour pic and wiring schematic included in the delivery)keep an eye out for him on his VFR800 and trailer at Far Kairn.
hope to have the towbar on for FK.
this is how I finished up with the towbar wiring.


this is how it has progressed for the kart.
