    Mustang Owners

    Do you use your mustang as a bike hauler?
    I have owned several mustangs and I am thinking of another
    late model stang?
    I want to know if owners haul their bike in the trunk or use a rack?
    I like the idea of throwing gear in the trunk contain the smell.
    I have a 26" full suspension bike usually ride solo once in a while
    1 other rider.

    I own a 2004 Wrangler Rubicon lifted with big tires its a great
    bike hauler yet the 13 mpg is tough to handle and it seems
    as if their is always some maintenance issue that arises.

    Thanks for the replies post pics would be helpful.

    Not a mustang, the arch rival actually, but I'd imagine you can do something like this. Supposedly it doesn't work with my GFX, but the only effect was that it kind of pushed up on the bottom of the diffuser. I cut a little bit out so it wouldn't, works great. My thought is that since the receiver connects to both sides of the frame, it "ties" the rear end together, add to that my front strut brace and upgraded sway-arms, it handles great and is a significant improvement over stock. I don't scrape when I have the rack on, mostly because of the low front end that keeps me from ever getting into spot where that would ever happen. Same thing back when I had a WRX, as it had a very long nose (similar effect).

    Unless you know the towbar is there, you never notice it, no one looks for that and you only see it from one low angle for the most part. Mustang Owners-2011-11-19_10-08-35_16.jpgMustang Owners-071.jpg

    2013 GT. Used a SeaSucker Talon for my FS 26, HT 29, and FS 29 along with my current CX bike. That picture is shot doing 80 down the freeway after a trail ride with some buddies.



    They all have fit in the trunk one way or another. FS 29 was the most difficult, drop the seatpost and remove the front wheel. Handlebars were the biggest issue. The way the trunk is on these cars is not the greatest design but what you can fit in there is actually pretty impressive.
