I know others on here have done this because this is where I got the idea from, such a simple and effective way of mounting a bike carry system. Here it is with our two Moultons:

Looks nice. Shame somebody has pinched your peddels.

Haha, they've done me a favour as I was worried about the pedals scratching the van!

I have done a similar conversion, though coming off the jockey wheel mounting like the attached design, but have yet to actually use it as it's been too d*mn hot for cycling...

Have tried the Xpress bike rack on my car and I was very impressed with the simplicity and effectiveness of the design. Shame they don't make it with aluminium tube, though, as it is quite heavy as it is in steel.

Excellent instructions - that's where I got the drawing from, I think. Big thumbs up to you, Mr Calder

I have installed mine so that you CAN open the door locker with the cover on the ball hitch - just!
