This is a photo of the mounting bracket I made.
It is attached under the trailer between the frame cross members. It is mounted in the same area as the front tie down rings. This allows me to remove the wheel chocks and the floor is smooth, just four holes for each chock. I only had the one bagger in the shop, the rest were Dynas, Softails and Customs. But two baggers will fit.

Will the harbor freight hold up the bike without the kickstand while you strap it?

10x, The Harbor Freight chocks are designed to hold the motorcycle upright on a level floor. while you place tie down straps on. However I took the front cross bar off so the chock would fit in the tt. So unless they are bolted to the floor I would not trust them. I also place a strap through the front wheel and around the upright on the chock. I tried it out of the trailer and on a level floor and even with out the cross bar, (which has tie down points), the bike was held up right.

A person could install the chocks and then cut the cross bars to fit.

if those bikes are of your wifes design, she has a very good eye/design sense, and you have good building skills.

I see you have a plate on the ramp to drive the bikes on. Is that to keep from nicking up the trailer? What size is it and what type of metal?

Thanks for the compliments. 10x, those are just rubber backed carpet squares. I use them to protect the trailer and frame on the bikes. With the trailer level, The ramp angle is just steep enough that a stock hieght FLHTC will just barely clear. The lower bikes will hit the trailer frame.
