i found a good deal on an electric chainsaw from a Sears that is turning back to a Kmart about 70 miles round trip.
almost took my ranger and was going to do the 45 mph
slow trek to get it.instead threw some bungy cords under the seat at took off with not even thinking about it-till i strapped it down
looks kinda flimsy but rode super solid the whole way home.
these are aftermarket goped decks i have laying around.
22 by 12,i'll probably use the spider one because it is black
they are billit alluminum,very light and a bunch of holes to stap to
once it's secured.one bungy under the seat,then some rubbertex
on the rear handles with zip ties,it will be very secure.
if you go to DDM.com-hit goped scooters-hp parts then decks.
zero error has a much wider one that is also a spider design
almost the size you mentioned.
Very cool. The rear seat/ grab handles are a work of genius on this bike and make up a very functional trade mark look for Honda right now across many of their models. Perfect for a solo deck type rack on which to strap a large duffel bag. I have a 30 liter water proof duffel I bought for $15 and a real dry bag that is 50 liters. I bought bulk shock cord and empty hooks so I could make the bungies to accommodate a large length and make them adjustable by changing the knots. My deck is 13" at the front and 11 at the back by 18 long. It's been very handy but can't lock for camping so I am going to make a boat tail box out of marine ply.
i like your setup
how is the platform being held?
did you ever get a spare seat and mount to that with bolts
through the seat?
that is my next step-that way i can just swap seats and
strap to the handles for easy change ups when not transporting anything.
i was actually thinking about making a custom plywood piece
and having a couple metal brackets copied from the seat for the
front.then welding a piece up like the lock in portion in the rear.
i think it would be easy and just have a 1/8'' plate as a base to bolt to the plywood with recessed holes on the top to look nice.
if there were only more hours in a day
I thought about making some hooks to latch on in place of the seat but the grab handles line up with the seat so well I decided to leave it on as it is fitted well to keep the rain out. I made some hooks out of threaded rod to hook around the front corners of the seat. The rear is tie strapped to the grab handles. I carry a pair of cheap diagonal cutters jamed between the board and the seat in case I need to get under the rack during a trip. Some spare tie straps ride with the tool kit to put it back on. Just screwing through a replacement seat would be easy too.
this is what i ended up with,
i'll use a ratchet type strap instead of the bungy.
the cut out on the deck fits the seat perfect.
also as a plus it dosent touch anything cosmetic to scratch
when tightened down tight.
thats a sawzaw,drill combo-cordless 18v nailgun
and mine fein tool.i just need to get mytool bucket and my
radio on it and i'll be set
i figured out an awsome trailer design,just need to
find the right tire and hub.
will lock into the little rectangular cut outs at the passenger
foot rest ankle bumpers.will be a single sided axle
