    The hinges are 3/4 bar drilled through the center with a 3/8 bolt through the center. 3 sections for each hinge, 2 welded to the main gate, center welded to the second gate. 8 hinges total. Had to grind a small clearance for the hinge not to rub on each gate. Works great, my Valkyrie interstate weighs 940 lbs, and my 200 lbs on it, the gate does not even flex when loading it.
