I have quite a bit of driveway and live on a dirt road a quarter mile from the pavement. The road and driveway are covered with crushed rock. Over time the crushed rock gets pounded into the dirt. So instead of buying more crushed rock that's not cheap anymore I decided to build a driveway rake. The rake breaks up the surface and brings up the rock.

Initially I was going to build the entire implement but then it hit me that if I mount it to the bottom of the box scraper I won't have to build the whole thing and the weight will help it work.
The rake is 30"x52" with 72 spikes. It attaches to the bottom of the box scraper with 4 1/2" clevis pins.

It is working great, I did all of my driveway and about 300' of road in about 6 hours.

We would chain a length of I beam between the wheels of our underground trucks to grade roads.  Worked fine.
I have several restored bikes along with a 2006 Goldwing with a sidecar. My wife has a 2019 Suzuki DR 650 for on and off road.

And I came in here expecting to see a project where you rake the frame neck of a KZ1000 in the driveway!     
Don't be ridiculous! It's only a flesh wound!
