Board Rack for a scooter/moped

Postby murph440 » Sun Dec 20, 2009 10:56 pm

Hey guys

im currently living in Raglan New Zealand for the summer and just bought myself a moped. i was wondering has anyone ever managed to find a company that sells racks for boards to use on scooters or mopeds?

ive been doing some googling but only found one company in Hawaii that costs a lot of money. Any suggestions would be welcome?

Thanks

I was just offered one of these for sale the other day, but the guy has left the island now and the rack is in storage.

Maybe post a message on the Hawaii craigslist and maybe somebody will ship one out to you a bit cheaper used.

A bike trailer is another way to go. Here's a couple links i found. I think they might work for a moped, maybe have to make a couple modifications.
Some pretty good ideas here...

A really small one here...

This is a bike trailer for kids so it must be pretty solid...

Good luck.

hey I guess almost half of mopeds here have them. I know offdalip.com sells them, but that might be the ones you are looking at. They are simple and expensive. How about checking out ebay or something?
