Lost part of the reply?? God knows why.

Just to say we never carry water on board which saves 80 kgs approx

The Vespa at just under 80 kgs is minus it's seat and spare wheel holder come luggage rack both of which travel midships in the van.

The scooter Rack was made by towbar manufacturer to bolt directly onto the tow ball munting plate Via 4 X M16 HT bolts. It's rated at 100kgs max which does indeed rule out a lot of the available little bikes. The Honda vision (110kgs) for EG is off limits.
The towbar is type approved and was new with the (2013) van.

Our new (to us) Honda Vision 110cc arrives next Thursday. Looking forward to some nice weather and putting it through its paces.

Be interested to hear how you get on with the Honda Barry and also what van Chigman has to carry the Pcx?

I am not sure how he carries it. Will let you know how the Vision goes. Power wise it should be about the same as the old Peugeot Speedfight but the jury is still out. Plenty of Alp size gradients around here so we will soon know. As long as it can cope with long stretches up to about 10% it should be fine.

Our Suzuki Burgman 400 goes about 228kg, so a bit of a biggie

Started drawing up the rear carrier for the Mercedes, we can't use the towball as we will be towing the big trailer, but as we have what can best be described as a 'ship's anchor' for a towbar, we can anchor it to that plus the end of the chassis is about about 14" above and just behind the rear number plate panel.

We need access to the 'garage' as one of the smaller show engines will be carried in there, so the carrier will consist of a chunk of aluminium extrusion and steel braces to go onto the towbar and chassis, all quickly removeable with pip pins.

I know that most coachbuilts have a smaller extension chassis at the back and are limited on weight, but we have more than enough capacity to add the Burgman and carrier.





The underskirts have been removed since these pictures were taken. The towbar is a chunk of heavy steel channel welded to the two curved chassis supports.

Hi Chigman,

Is your van a tandem axle or single carrying the Pcx?

Thank you

Our Honda SH 125

Will be carried on the Easy lifter hyda trail

Not legal not illegal

A bit like me then

But life is short,
In our case maybe a bit shorter

Hopefully when the homones wear off Albert will loose weight

My weight gain is due to worry

What????




The bike will manage on the flat

Will struggle uphill

A bit like me then

Hi
Our van is a tag axle, and our garage area has a 200kg limit. Bike is 130kg and we run without water

We've had lovely weather mostly this weekend. Have you been on your Vision yet, if so, how does it compare, go etc?
