- FS Towbar mounted bike rack- adapted for 4x4s with rear wheel on back
PLEASE NOTE PICK UP ONLY OR MEET EAST MIDLANDS- I’ll post most things but not this !! Plus due to the mods I would like someone to try it first
£100 cash on collection
Reason for selling is my freelander is going next week and I’m getting a mondeo Estate which I can either put bike in or on the roof( not so easy on a 4×4 )
If your genuinely interested as you drive a 4×4 with a rear wheel on then email in profile to discuss and more detailed piccies.
Automaxi 2 bike carrier that was originally 3 , I have modified this for my Freelander due to the rear wheel getting in the way so this would benefit anyone that has the same or similar.
The rack has also been modified by a swing out bar with straps as the original idea is to strap bike one to the bar then strap each bike to each other which was a shonky way of doing it, luckily I had an old scissor type rack that I pinched some bits off so bikes are secured seperately now with a proper mount for under the downtube.
The mods to the actual rack for fitting are shorter clamp arms( so you can open/close them under the spare wheel) and also the rack nearest the car door has been cut off as this would never be used .
Great little rack with full electrics inc light board, straps x2 plus larger straps for the wheels as the originals would not fit 2.4 tyres.
It tilts too and is lockable plus fold flat for storage
This is the original rack
Here’s a pic of it in action( please note the third bike tray had not been removed at this point)
Here’s the holding bar mod I did( yes my garage is a tip!)
With two bikes
