Armitage scooter rack for sale

Post by Paulmold on Sat Jun 30, 2018 1:12 pm

Not mine but my neighbours, hardly used but they now want to downsize from their Dethleffs having bought a holiday home.
Don't know price yet but thought I'd see if any interest here before he puts on eBay/Gumtree.

Hi Paul

Cracking good racks from a very reputable maker, but from personal experience perhaps I should repeat the usual caveat if anyone seriously considers this.

Do check your rear axle loading first of all. I was amazed at how little I could carry.

I looked into carrying an older model Honda 125 (Weighing only about 105kg from memory) on our Nuevo, but it was next to impossible with safety. If I fitted air rides and uprated rear tyres, SVTech could just about give me enough rear axle capacity, but Watling Towbars refused to fit a rack as it would have made the steering dangerously light. It's not only the weight of the bike, but the towbar or other mounting, and the rack itself of course!

(I would trust (Watling) as they have the capacity to calculate loadings very accurately, and any firm which rejects business as they do must be respected.)


It all adds up alarmingly, both the weight and the expense!!

Maybe check with Watling before making any firm decisions??
