They're bendy. Would probably work as a one off, I wouldn't want to do it semi-regularly.


Yes.


I don't like walking. I don't plan to spend any money on this contraption, it'll be made 100% out of recycled materials.


There's a nice hole through the frame between the handlebars and fuel tank, pretty sure I could get a strap through there quite easily without damaging anything. Is it safe to lift the rim like that? I thought it would bend or something.

Should be, most the weight in at the front.
 
I would make a carrying rack of the sort pictured earlier and put 3pt link brackets on it. Lower the linkage, wheel the bike on, strap to hold it on, lift linkage up a bit and you are away.

A bit of RSJ long enough and wide enough to fit both wheels on and a frame to lean the bike against, simples.

A cheap push bike might be the job for your initial ride back, least it doesn’t matter if it gets a knock. 1.5k cycle that in a few minutes
