G'day Tim,

Next week, I am putting the bike carrier on my drawer bar. I bought my postie bike (CT-110) with the low range and I have passed my licence test - just !
Email me at jigalongjigalongATgmail.com and when I have finished, I will email you some photos and details about where to get the bike carrier.
Happy Christmas,
Willie.

Thanks Willie,

Thanks for the picture, job looks great.. I amafraid that I am not going down this route anymore due to tow ball weight issues. I wish there was a road registrable bike that weighed about 60 or 80 kg but everything I've seen is around the 120kg mark.

One of the best 'prospecting bikes' I have seen (many years ago) consisted of a 50/70cc Honda motor driving smaller than normal motorbike wheels - but very fat ones. The well padded seat was on just mounted on a vertical pipe as were the handlebars. I don't think it was homemade but it had all the attributes of a mountain goat in action.

Being a part time prospector I have always kept my eye open but never seen anything similiar since then.
