I made this setup for my KLR to fit any bike and still use my top box. I did a 2000 mile trip this spring and it worked well, aside from the fork quick release nut vibrating off twice. Luckily I was using a backup strap around the stem. I kept my weight centered as I did not want to upset the perfect handling of the KLR.


Tail of the Dragon shot, pegs even hit the ground a couple of times.

You ride a carbon Mantra?
I hate you I hate you I hate you I hate you.

My first fully was an Aluminum Mantra, built very nicely in a sick weight weenie way, I might add. That bike was stolen, I used the insurance $ to buy the fancy chameleon green Mantra Pro. Unfortunately, the rear triangle of that bike broke at the chainstay/seatstay weld. Klein replaced it with an Adept frame, but it just wasn't the same.

I gave the Adept away and bought a Kona Stinky DeeLux.

Still wish I had that carbon Mantra.

I hate you I hate you I hate you.

I rode many many miles like this. This was right before a 120 mile ride up to a mountain bike trail where I stayed with friends, rode bicycle, and then rode scooter home.

Very stable setup, assembled with a bar mount fork clamp and a short section of bar mount tire gutter holder. The front wheel is held on the other side with a fork and a stem clamped to the rack.

Not me - but I've seen this guy roaming around Knoxville a bunch for the last month and haven't been able to get a picture. I finally came up on him going N on i-140 last week going almost 80!(and on a VERY windy day I might add) He actually passed me and then I had to speed up to get past him to get the picture. I was going to post the pic as a separate thread and then I found this one. I can't believe this setup is as common as it is. I'd never seen a bike on bike setup before seeing this Tiger.

Nice

Excellent work CAMODUDE!
It looks like you dropped the back mounting point and its a much more level setup now. It looks kinda familiar...

I didnt have any lean over problems either since the bicycle mount came down and out about as far as my Givi E41 cases and my pegs hit before the cases, so I figure I would be ok. I dont plan to ride that hard with a bike on there anyway.

Good luck with the rest of the fabrication and test ride. Its getting warm out there, time to hit the twisties and than some mountain trails!

I've just completed my latest bicycle rack. This one is for a folding bike that's housed in an ABS plastic suitcase. The
hard case also provides a place to store all motorcycle gear while bicycling.



The new aluminum (no welding) luggage rack bolts to the existing homebuilt aluminum / HDPE plastic pannier and top rack and at a separate cross support.
This provides a stable base and the luggage rack is easily removed for using the top rack.
The bike case bolts to the luggage rack, to complete the process.



The bike case is an inexpensive ($65.00US) Bill Blass Venture 30" whose combined LWH dimensions meet
the airline standard of 62". We'll be flying with two bikes to Oregon in June.



It's hard to believe all of this will fit ...



... but it does.



The ABS hard case provides a lower CG, less overhang, better protection, and greater storage than my other bike racks.

Having said that, many hundreds of miles on the Sprint and FJR have resulted in no transport
problems while allowing the use of any of my bikes, not just a specific folder. It's all good !

My other aluminum homebuilt bike on bike racks ...

These look like absolute death traps to me. All I can think of is it catching a side wind, or someone rear ending the bike and sending it through my spine.

Have you noticed any difference in handling since shifting it down? is that why you did it?


BTW Klein lost it after they stopped making the Fluoro Attitude - ahhh beautiful

No difference in handling, I moved it down to give me more room to drive the bike with the rear up so far the handle bars were to far forward I could hardly get on the bike, but now I don't even know its on there, it handles just fine.
I did a 100 mile test ride after finishing the rear mount and it handles really well even at 80 mph for extended time, no issues at this point
I just unbolt the rear mount from my box rack and slap the box back on

I like that you dropped down the rear bracket for your rack. It looks like you made it out of sturdy tubing, and I would imagine it does not shake too much when the bike hits bumps in the road.
Nice job CAMODUDE
