    Sports cars that you haul your bike to the trail head in-hitch-w-bike-1.jpg

    I no longer have this car, but...

    EVO IX (de-spoilered) with a custom modified Lancer hitch.

    Excuse the rack... it would be a year or so after this picture was taken that I discovered wheel tray racks.

    I have a g coupe and am new to the sport and looking for a hauler. We're you able to put that on yourself or did you have to get a hitch installed?

    I had it installed and used it for a while with the upright post and flip-up top tube type carrier, no issues.
    Later on, I went to the platform rack and was not as happy. IMO, the Curt hitch I ordered was a small mounting plate area and not sufficient although it was spec'd for the car.

    I believe the under frame of the rear bumper may be mostly aluminum so beware of that as the hitch may tilt downward a bit after a while as mine did. I was toying with the plan of getting a way wider type of hitch / mount like most are and having another crack at it but that timing coincided with my rationale of looking at cars more utility oriented. The G was a fun and great car in every way but this (pictured below) is what I was trying to make it into so I found it easier to go get one.... lol. I also haul my dog around more now too.

    Good luck and just do a bit more homework on it than I did !

    Sports cars that you haul your bike to the trail head in



    Here’s my “sporty” car setup. I understand I will be upsetting the more purist sports car enthusiasts out there with my civic Si.

    But, I don’t care

    As one of the purist, you did it alright.

    I always love Z's. And even for those picky folks on here... That definitely qualifies as a sports car!

    I like the idea of that setup... just don't know if I like the idea of having to polish where the suction cups were... metallic black is just so frustrating to keep nice lol

    I just carry some microfiber towels and detailing spray to keep it clean. The road grime from driving is worse than what the suction cup leaves behind.

    It's the hologram that they leave on the clear that he is worried about. It won't be near as noticeable on red as on black but it'll leave one.

    I caught a piece of road debris off the roof that dented it and scratched to primer so will have to be repainted. Made it easier not to care.
