Scooter Bicycle Rack - Do they exist?

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Scooter Bicycle Rack - Do they exist?

I'm thinking of going car free since I barely drive anymore. I taxi to the bars and only drive to really get from A to B. My one concern would be not being able to transport my bike to cycling events though. I've seen motorcycle bike racks. Are there scooter bike racks?

there are a bunch of DIY solutions that people here have come up with.

try and find the schematics and customize them for your ride.

I seriously saw a motorcycle carrying his road bike down the highway. All I could say was "Holy Sh*t, thats saweeeet!!".

I seriously want that but then again, motorcycles can be dangerous.

I made this not too long ago.. use it once or twice a month for a saturday ride that starts out 35miles from my house...

I have plans for a scooter kit soon, one that will allow me to side-mount the bike into a modified yakima rack.

Very cool. That's one way of doing it. The motorcycle rack I saw had the bike with both wheels on and hanging perpendicular to the motorcycle off the rear of the motorcycle.

Any idea who makes that mount?

P.S. - First thing that came to mind was, that would be the worst cow tipping experience if I didn't put my right foot down when coming to a stop and also didn't lean left. Oiy.

Don't have one yet. I'm looking to get a 150cc for legal street/highway use. Unsure what actual dimensions will be.

A downside would be turns. Unless the bicycle is mounted sort of high up, you risk smacking your bicycle tires on the pavement when you turn.

You might be able to simply use a regular car trunk-mount bike rack. Hook the straps to whatever they'll hold onto, angle the part that holds the bike up as far as you can, and strap the bike near the end of the poles if possible (to clear the ground on turns).




EDIT: Several ideas here look promising, depending on your available mounting points on the scooter: link

And there's an on-going discussion here, with a bunch of pics that I can't see (blocked at work): link
