Motorcycle mount

If you have the swivel (rear) section on wrong, it won't pivot up when not in use.

I had the same problem, so I took a hi-lift jack and opened the front up more. More of a "U" shape instead of the tighter "V". Still sticks, but not as bad.

Still loving the ease of the Biker Bars

Bolt It On, Serious Racks
I made my own version of this and it works great for 2 bikes (one dresser, one sport bike). I just took a piece of 2x4 tube steel, notched and welded some 4x4 angle iron (for the wheels to fit into). Then I just set this on 2 jack stands, bolt it down with some J-bolts, lock washers, and wing nuts; and it's good to go. Spent maybe $100 total and it holds the bikes solid without having to modify / drill the trailer at all. I'll try to get some pics asap.

Sure. That is a u-bolt running through the wood. It is the same width as the chock.

After this picture, I painted the wood blocks with black bed liner. From a few feet, it looks oem.

Another thought. Weld a bolt on the bottom pointing forward. Slide it through the hold down loop, add a washer and lock nut. I did that to the middle front of my HF, holds the wing just fine. Threw the rocker away. To small to fit wing tire. 4 tie downs , two forward----two back front wheel in chock and frame block of 2x4 's in front of rear wheel..

NJ-Bill, I did like your idea for the front wheel chock. I have used these HF floor chocks in my garage for years. I do not have them bolted to the floor, but mounted on a 1x12 for the full length and glued HF tool drawer mat to the bottom side. does not slide on the garage floor when rolling the bike on or off. I used this same idea for the toy hauler.


Bottom with the HF tool drawer mat



I used a 6 inch in length 2x4 to catch the tie-down loop and a 1-1/2 U-Bolt (which measures 2" inside) to capture the HF Wheel Chock.


The 1x12 lifts the chock 3/4 of an inch to allow the U-Bolt to pass under and not touch the floor. No drilling in the Chock assy.





When I got to Denver this last weekend I rolled the bike and tie it down it did not move.

Racenviper,

That looks great. I may copy the wood underneath.
Thanks,
Bill
