    I suppose this is a bit of a different bike than what most would think when I say "bike rack", but it's still a bike rack, right? [:D]

    So, has anyone done this before? The bike is small, but I'll be checking that tongue weight again. Might need to balance it with some weight in the rear (I don't normally carry water, but the tank is in the back).

    Thanks! It's a 1978 Yamaha DT100 I found for an incredibly low price... Those old Enduro's are pretty inexpensive sometimes, and super cool (I think, at least). This model is pretty small, here it is next to my 4 year old daughter:

    I have a feeling that the tongue weight will increase a bit. Nice looking bike..

    As cool as the bike rack was going to be, I no longer have the need to install it. I came up with a different solution:

    A new tow vehicle [:D] Now I have plenty of room in the bed for the bike and our supplies. However, we are headed out this Friday, and I need a few things for the new truck before then!

    Great idea for any "bike" enthusiast who doesn't want to leave any wheels home!
