Live to Ride. Ride to Ride

Post  T-Leaf on Sun 09 Sep 2018, 1:18 am

I built this set up over 4 years ago.
Solid. Don't even realize bike is there when riding.
Legal (I think) here in Ontario, Canada anyway.
I've done several day and weekend trips, twisty roads and excessive highway speeds.
Very very simple. Store bought rack. I used extra givi universal luggage mounting rack pieces and unistrut.
I could have made an improved/cleaner version but I just keep on riding.

Not sure what the laws here would permit , but I think the one with the motor in would be easier up hills  Laughing

As for laws here in Australia I would think there would have to be something written about rear overhang.

Rear over hang (measured from rear axle to extreme of overhang)  can be the lesser of 3.7m or 60% of wheel base in Australia

So 60% of 1485mm = 891 mm from rear axle ................presumably the center of the axle .
