Weird Boat Trailer?


This might just be the oddest boat trailer I've ever seen. I answered a Craig's List add for a Honda outboard, bought it and then the guy said, "It's a package deal, you have to haul off the boat it was on." Towed fine going down the freeway for 90 miles. Anyone recognize these parts?

Looks like a torsion bar with a coil spring assist. Volkswagen used torsion bars on the front of their vehicles for years.

My Myers Manx dune buggy (built on a chopped VW bug) had torsion bar rear suspension (instead of conventional springs). The front had Koni coil-over shocks (springs on the shock).
