As other have said just a threaded bolt stud with a nut and washer holding the spare against a cross frame member. And that cheap "safety chain" that was wrapped once
around the cross member on the GTS. Young and strong describes my 30 something son...and he was having "fun", even with me helping, on that POS of a setup. I can assure you that it wouldn't be a one person job in the dark....
And you can definitely forget about me bench pressing the flat tire back in place, and holding it up, while I redo the nut and washer. Instead I'll just roll it over to the Roadmaster, bolt it on, then raise it up with the supplied lift assist rod...
I looked at buying a eBay crank setup but the rear body work, and the frame extension, on a GTS isn't very conducive to adding one.
