Can you measure the diameter of the main tube at the top of the basket making up its perimeter...Suppose you lay a 2x4 down on top of the basket in line with the vehicle. I want to know the diameter of the tube that the board would touch in the front.

I get mine Thursday, but I want to be ready with some materials. I smell a how-to brewing.

Dont you worry about it...I dont think its been done yet, so I'm going to do my best at a decent how-to. We've got some really good ones here (Now I know how to fix my squeaky rear suspension) and I want to add to the bank.

Damn I just added another coat of paint on mine with the extension added and was going to mount it tonight. Oh sure... just as I was going to finish it your going to make me want to take it off again. Your evil LOL.

Yeah 1 inch, 1 inch heat shrink tubing goes perfectly over the joints and screws.

Ok, so the how to is utterly pointless, as I did not realize how EASY it was going to be. Its just a bike rack.

Just bolt this



linky

to the bracket that the bolts for the wind fairing go into. Then bungee cord the back wheel to the top/back of the basket. Done. I was planning on a big ordeal bolting it with u bolts and a support bracket, but once I had the parts in hand it was a no brainer. Two holes, two bolts, one very sturdy bike rack.
