[SOLD] Pin Box 2" Hitch (for bike rack)

As fate would have it, I finally got my father-in-law to build me a 2" hitch for my pin box for a bike rack. I used it 1 time for 2,500 miles to and from Key West (where we barely used the bikes!). And now- I'm upgrading my pin box and this is no longer usable.


(missing from this picture is an eyebolt in the front for tieing an "oh snap!"-strap to)

I can include instructions for how we mounted it to my pin box (via 4 bolts/screws with lock washer) as well as including the hardware that we used. You'll need some tools for the install.

I think I'm looking for something like $75 plus shipping at the actual cost of shipping. That covers me for what I have into it and a pittance for a thank you to him.

I'm guessing this not a universal hitch?

It seems unlikely. This came off of a Lippert 1621 hitch. We measured the angle of the baseplate to be about 23 degrees (though, when my father-in-law tack welded it, he was off slightly).

But, as long as you have a flat top to your hitch and it's around 23 degrees- this should bolt on.

We put a machined eye bolt there to give me somewhere to hook a strap to.

I'm trying to see if I have any close up pictures of that part.
