I'M NOT SURE IF ANYONE HAS EVER POSTED SOMETHING LIKE THIS BUT HERE IS MY LITTLE TRICK I DID. I BOUGHT A KIMPEX BACK SEAT AND WAS WONDERING HOW I COULD GET BACK MY RACK SPACE.
WELL I FOUND THAT IF YOU LOOK STRAIGHT BACK UNDER THE REAR OF THE WHEELER AT THE FRAME (WHERE THE BACK RACK WRAPS UNDER AND BOLTS TO THE OUTSIDE OF IT ON EITHER SIDE OF YOUR TRUNK) THE FRAME IS OPEN ON THE END IN THE SHAPE OF A VERTICAL RECTANGLE. USING 3/4 IN OD BOX TUBING 7" LONG I TAPPED IT IN THE VERY BOTTOM OF THAT RECTANGLE. YOU NEED TO GRING DOWN THE OUTSIDE SIDES OF THE TUBING SOME FIRST. IT SLIDES RIGHT UNDER THE WELDED NUTS FOR THE RACK BOLTS INSIDE THE FRAME. IT IS QUITE SNUG IN THERE. EVEN THOUGH IT IS VERY TIGHT IN THERE TAKE AND MEASURE BACK TO SEE HOW FAR YOU TAPED THE TUBING IN AND DRILL JUST FORWARD OF WHERE YOU CALCULATE THE END TO BE THROUGH BOTH THE FRAME AND THE TUBING AND SECURE WITH A BOLT OR SELF TAPPING SCREW. I LEFT ENOUGH OUT THE BACK END TO COME JUST PAST THE RACK BARS. THEN I TOOK SOLID SQUARE TUBING (NOT SURE EXACT WIDTH AROUND 1/2 IN) AND MADE A FRAME FOR A CHAINSAW HOLDER. YOU CAN MAKE OR BUY ANYTHING YOUR MIND CAN THINK OF AND ATTACH BY WELDING OR JUST UBOLTS TO A SIMPLE SQUARE FRAME WICH SLIDES INTO THE TWO RECIEVERS NOW. TO SECURE IT I TOOK AND DRILLED A HOLE THROUGH AT THE VERY TOP OF THE RECIEVER TUBES ABOUT AN INCH AND A HALF FROM THE END TO PUT A CLIP LIKE YOU USE ON THE PIN OF YOUR TRAILER RECIEVER PIN. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS NOTCH THE SOLID FRAME THAT YOU ARE SLIDING IN AT THE SAME SPOT AND IT HOLDS VERY SECURE. I PLAN ON MAKING FRAMES AND ATTACHING A COOLER, METAL FRAME BOX TO THROW ANYTHING IN AND A REGULAR METAL TOOL BOX. LIKE I SAID ANY LITTLE THING YOU CAN THINK OF CAN EASILY BE PUT BACK THERE. YOU COULD EVEN JUST MAKE ONE FRAME AND USING THE UBOLTS AND WING NUTS ATTACH AND UNATTACH EVERYTHING YOU COME UP WITH.
SORRY FOR BEING SO LONG AND PROBABLY CONFUSING. I WILL TRY TO PUT THE PICTURE WITH IT TO SUM IT ALL UP. ANY QUESTIONS JUST ASK.
