simplified bicycle carry concept step-by-step walk thru

Enclosed is a concept to mount a bicycle on a Vespa GTS 250ie. The intent of the tread is to utilize all the mounts, racks and panniers added as to facilitate a simple attachment of a mountain bike to the scooter.


planform view looking down of my Vespa GTS. Added rack and panniers to increase footprint area. need to protect these components from the bikes interface though.


note panniers essentially level with seat, rear rack abit low though


old sleeping pad .60 inches thick


measure bike platform area


cut pad to match rack size


trim larger pad to top rack pad, cut holes to footman loops on pannier rack


make straps with nylon webbing and exposed female type plastic buckles. attach to footman loop on pannier


attach straps to center post, 4x straps total to thread thru bike


make male male end adjustable strap


attach strap to female ends on rack center post


bike to mount...folding bike, but not clown style..almost full size


fold peddles


unhinge at latch


ready to mount on padded platform


lay on platform


rear view


thread straps to pannier and rear rack quick attach points, cinch the nylon straps, plenty of operator seat room


strap shown attached to pannier footman loop


strap to rear rack


rear rack female attach point


overhead view



observations:
1. a compromise on bike function, not a real mountain bike but close enough
2. no issues with transport, bike is pretty light
3. easy on easy off, just 4 independent straps, secures bike well

Enjoy!
