On other "off the shelf" tire carriers there is a 2" receiver but it doesn't look stout. It looks like it's more for other "hitch mount" accessories.
Ok, I was wonder about the weld and mounting to the OEM hitch location.
But thinking , you could more than likely use this to reach into the OEM hitch receiver.

Ah. OK. I see the disconnect here...

I have this inserted into the hitch.



The tabs I welded on are just to keep it from wobbling around. Other designs use a wedge bolt type thing.

Visible in this picture:



I'm still utilizing the factory 5/8 hitch pin (replaced with a bolt so it doesn't rattle) in conjunction with the hitch extender. I actually have another clamping bolt on the inside of the hitch but didn't have any photos and didn't feel like trying to explain in the post.

I came to the conclusion a while ago that there are people in this world who are just much more talented than I ever will be, and this reinforces that conclusion.

Well done sir. That thing is crazy nice.

Thanks. To me this seems like a hack project. I build high-end vintage motorcycles as a real hobby. Ok, maybe they're not ALL high end but some of them are and they all took way more care than this thing.

I really liken the placement of the tire off to the right side; are you thinking about fabricating and selling these?

Ah man. Well if you consider selling it in parts/pieces and let the end user do the welding and powdercoating, I'd be in. This setup to too damn nice.

I'm with ^^^. I'd totally buy a peices-parts kit and have a buddy weld it all up and PC it.

You have talent a d skill. The esthetic, design and creativity on the bikes is fresh and build quality a d skill is top tier. I know people who can weld but design and shit like making bushings from scratch are next level. Cheers.
