if you are building a trailer, take a look at the link for condor products. in the cycle recovery section i have a condor cycle loader for recovering motorcycles with our flat bed tow trucks. you strap the bike to the condor, hook the winch line up to the front of the condor, and winch up on the truck. i have loaded ultra classics by myself with this with no problems. there ara a number of different anchoring options you can look at and fabricate something to hold the bike down. go back to the home page and watch the video too.
