That looks awesome! My wife and I and our MTB/moto buddies have been thinking of this for a while now.

The rack is pretty simple, 2' long 1" pvc strengthened by pounding 1" aluminum channel into it. It spans the very back of the seat and allows the bicycle frame to hang off of it. Its secured with a hose clamp on either side. The forks attach to a yakima attachment bolted into the passenger footpeg. My Givi box goes from the side to the top and allows the bicycle to be braced, the front tire just slides on. Each frame is different, my specialized fit perfect, my Intense 5.5 requires a roller off a boat trailer to fill the gap. Very stable at speed

I do ride 2up a lot... but it still a great functional set up you have there.




I saw this set up at the Barber Museum a few weeks ago on a BMW.

Thanks Juan for posting the shots

I'm glad you like the rack, its a great way to get on and off the island without too much expense. Juan, I'm kind of new to the camera/smugmug thing, how do you get the pictures to appear in this forum vs just the links showing up?
