I figured I'd post this project for those of you who haul a motorcycle on the back of your truck camper. These are meant to go in the reciever hitch. I have made them before but never took pictures of them. Now that I have the cell phone camera, I had some fun taking pics. [emoticon]

That looks nice and looks like it's perfect for a dirtbike.
How heavy is your motorcycle?

Thanks.

The CR500 is about 275 lbs with a full tank of gas.

I agree, I like a wheel stop at the end of the carrier, but this customer did not want wheel stops. I didn't build these for myself, as I already have one I built a few years ago for my own use.

Any Idea on the weight of the unit and do you have a ramp set up? I want one for the front, a have a honda CT110 the handle bars swing 90' for hauling the bike weighs about 175 then figure the hitch and frame another 200? So that would only be like 1 extra girlfriend right?

Looks very good. [emoticon]

I use a factory made one in my front hitch. Never did learn how to weld. [emoticon]

I like those CT-series bikes, cool little trail bikes. [emoticon]

This carrier should weigh about 50 lbs.

So far no ramps have been asked for but if that happens then ramps will be made too. On my carrier, I just use one of my wood plank loading ramps I built for loading the ATV into the back of the pickup.

I forget how much my front hitch weighed when I put it on my truck but I doubt it was more than 75 lbs. It is a Draw-Tite. www.draw-tite.com probly has the weight information on their site.

Here are some pics-

Thanks.

I was lucky, my dad taught me to weld when I was a kid and I went on with it myself from there.

NO, it would not be like an extra girlfriend. Life is hard enough with one girlfriend, and you would not have to argue with the bike and mount.
