    The best is yet to come, maybe by the time you get the bike together you can enjoy being stuck AND being eaten alive by flies and mosquitos;)

    With an IMS 10 gallon tank filled with gas...Go figure. Bruce has not been out on a bike again with me to this day.

    Or get one of these. Works great. Recently pulled a Goldwing from a ditch with only one helper mini Block and tackle that weighs less than 1.5 pounds and lifts 800 pounds easily

    That thing is pretty slick. I bet I could make something up that's similar, the cordage is probably pretty pricey. I had a cheap one from princess auto it was totally useless but it didn't have roller bearings like that. Also had cheap poly rope that just bound up.

    1/4" Synthetic winch rope would work very well for this. It has no stretch and stores flat. The stuff is expensive at places like Royal Dist but can found cheap on E bay, I bought mine for around $18 and it works as advertised.

    I believe the company sells that rope. It weighs nothing, is very thin and has a breaking strain of 1600 pounds.

    Indeed it's a nice looking compact kit, though this type of cord is readily available and I suspect is similar to the stuff I previously used for climbing... https://www.mec.ca/en/product/0403-030/6mm-Nylon-Static-Cord?colour=TRQ00 there's also cord that's 1mm more in diameter and is almost twice the strength ~1300kg https://www.mec.ca/en/product/0403-022/7mm-Nylon-Static-Cord?colour=ORG00... I carry a bunch of the 7mm stuff with me on almost any outdoor adventure... it's invaluable, especially when combined with a couple pulleys.
