had one too – same colour and age – and tended to just sling bikes in the back. they are surprisingly spacious for a wee car.
re. the ebay one – doesn’t look like you’d be able to get in the boot without removing it, which might be a bit annoying.
a friend had a similarish one and although basic it did the job. just have to make sure it’s fitted properly and bikes are well tied on.
or they’ll be off on the first bend..projectMember
Had a similar bike rack worked well but tie and chain bikes onto it as theyll just be lifted off, also beaware in some areas children and adults with childlike minds will start trying to do pull ups on the bars at the traffic lights,even when you drive off.

I’ll need to check they are actually for the 205 — and I still have ’em in the garage (Aladdin’s cave of stuff!!).
Postage + nominal donation to charity box? I’ll get a pic or two and email you stu?
[Edit] – been to garage. had a look. there are a couple of bars – steel Thule type bars. Look like some ski racks and some other bits.
Thing is, not sure if the bars are for the 205 or the BX I had before the 205s.. !! there’s a foot pack attached, maybe if I take a pic it might clarify if it might fit?Posted 3 years agothisisnotaspoonMember
How easy are the Aiston Racks to put on a take off?
Needs a socket and driver (or a spanner), but it’s still as quick as any other method, no need to thread anything they just nip up. I just keep one in the boot for the car as the only way it’s slower is if you lose the spanner/socket.
Completely secure though, I’ve used mine without any additional straps or ties with no worries on some bikes. Others the angle of the tubes mean it’ll still roll off the suppourts if you shove it, so a bungee through the rim and wheel suppourt stops that.Posted 3 years ago
