Your local hardware store probably also has washers that will fit.
Alternately you can hold a washer with vice grips and use an angle grinder or bench grinder to shave it down.

Hey if you're still looking for a trailer I spied this one a while ago, I too have thought about this but like you say the kiddy ones are a bit wide. This one is for pets and is a fair bit narrower, could be just what you're after, might need just a few modifications though.
I live in the south east suburbs of Melbourne and have bought stuff off these guys in the past, they usually show up about 4 days after you buy it and their stuff's usually pretty good and reasonably priced.

Your battery is 48V and 16Ah
So your watt hours is 48 * 16 = 768Wh
So if you were to ride your bike consuming 500Watts constantly it would last for 1.5hours of riding. Of course Range is based upon speed so your gonna have to see how fast you are travelling to work that out arent you. Letting off the throttle a little extends your range by a lot.
Also you won't be consuming a full 500W all the time as you ride so it comes down to the terain you are riding over as well. But i would think you are gonna go about 40-45K's on a charge and if you pedal then your just gonna go further arent you.
Make sure your tyres are pumped up and you'll go closer to your maximum range as well.
Good to see you almost there matey!
Love the frame your using although i wouldn't want to commute on it myself due to the amount of people that would be looking at it LOL. But i am really thinking of trying to find one of these for weekend fun!
