Rocky Mountain Most Wanted

This is a thread for wanted to buy, motorcycle related items.

Rockies has threads for flea market and craigslist finds, now you can post up if you're looking to buy something in particular. Perhaps an inmate has exactly that item and might be willing to make you a deal?

Post up your Wanted to Buys (WTB) here.

WTB: Hitch Carrier

I'll start. I'm looking for a good quality 2" receiver hitch carrier. Prefer Joe Hauler or equivalent quality, not interested in the Harbor Freight model. It's for my WR.



AGREED TO BUY, PICKING UP SHORTLY

I use a johnny hauler w/ my Touareg. I bought it at Cabella's in GJ. It cost $60. Very sturdy although a bit on the heavy side. I'm hauling my KTM 530 on it.

Osman, what a great thread idea! Thanks for that. I can see it's already pretty popular. If you're like me, I have very little free time to track my searches, ebay, cl or the fl mkts. I'm thinking it may be a time-saver to have someone come to me.

Speaking of which, I'm looking for side racks that would match my tail rack for my XT 225. I believe I have the Happy Trails tubular tail rack. Ideally, I'd like to get the matching sides so I don't have to go buy a whole new set. Also, soft bags would be great, if someone had all these things.

I bought mine at Cabella's in Grand Junction. I haul my 530XCRW on it...Less than $60 and it has been money well spent.

Anyone have a BMW R1200GS front shock adjusting tool, spanner type thingy ? I need someone to stop by and click my front shock down a notch or two.

Beverage may be provided.

WTB: Motorcycle Lift

I'm also in the market for a good motorcycle lift. I'm tired of doing regular maintenance without one.

The Craftsman for $120 seems like a decent deal, but I'd rather buy a used one.

I'm not looking for the big, expensive pro lifts. Something more like this one...

I have one of these that you are welcome to if you are willing to store it. I don't really want to part with it completely because I do use it like once a year. So if I can borrow it back you can have it.

That sounds like a win-win! I'm in.

The Harbor Freight one works great and is maybe $60 with the coupon in every motorcycle mag.

Propane bbq

Looking for a grill, but don't want to shell out $100+ for a new one. Anyone upgrade recently?

Looking for a good floor jack. Either a nice US manufactured (vintage is fine) or a high quality lightweight aluminum jack.

Cash or trade...

I have an older one that still work good, I think. We only used it about 10 times and the Piazo (sp?) went out. It has the old tank style on it.

Free if you want to come pick it up.
