    Bike rack for a Nissan 350Z roadster?

    I have been searching, with no success, for a bike rack that will fit an '04 Nissan 350 Roadster. Does anyone know of a rack that will work?

    The Roadster is a convertible, right? Weld a tow hitch on it and use a hitch-mounted rack.

    Someone probably makes a Class I Receiver for it.

    Yes, it's a convertible. I have looked into doing the tow hitch (receiver). I can not find anyone that makes a hitch for the roadster. They are available for the coupe.

    Someone mentioned a rack that attaches to the trunk lid, but could not remember the name of the manufacturer or distributor.

    I fear I may have to buy a 'hoopty' just to transport the bike.

    Bummer. Others may be able to give you the thumbs up/down on trunk racks. I've only ever used roof racks.

    This one claims that it is for the Roadster:

    Sarris bike racks will work. something like the bones 2 or bones 3 will work fine. the unit DOES howeven rest on the bodywork so just put a soft rag/towel under the pads. I happen to have some of those cloth baby diapers but anything soft will work.
