Bike Rack?

Hi Everyone!! Anyone in the Aviator group know of a nice way to install bike rack? We haven't been able to figure out the best way to do this. We have the Wright Flyer

Snow to Surf,
There is no good way to add a bike rack to a Wright-Flyer that I know of. It looks like from one of your pictures you have a F250 truck. I added a front bumper hitch to my truck and that allows you to add a bike rack to the front of your truck so doing that may be your best option. I added a link to what I am talking about.

I agree, there is no way to do a bike rack. Better use the back of your truck if you can. The rear of the Aviator is all fiberglass with no metal.

Darnit, I kind of figured that was the answer but I thought I would try. Thanks for the replies!

Seems like your options are:

1) Over the tongue bike rack. I think Lippert makes one. Here's a random Google image of what I'm talking about:


2) On the truck. You can either go into the truck bed, above the truck rails, on top of the truck cab, or on a front hitch mount.
