Anyone know of any company that makes a bike carier for a C4? I'm gonna need a way to get a mountain bike around with my Vette and can't find anything made for a C4.

I saw a bike carrier on a C4 not long ago. Don't know where he got it, but apparently they make them, unless he made it himself. Not much help. :huh:

What kind of carrier was this? I looked when I got my car and the only thing I could come up with was to put the "trailer package" on the vette and use one of the receiver setups.

Not sure, think it was the type that uses the receiver. :huh:

Another place you might try is J C Witney.

For the price of the set-up you could probably get an older (Mid to late '80's) S-10 to haul your bikes around. Get one with a 4.3L V-6 and a short bed and you won't miss the Vette so much when you're hauling the bikes!

S-10's, my second love...

I've always gone the Blazer. Currently I have a 01 ZR2 Blazer. I've been looking at a tire mounted rack for it, since all the receiver racks I've seen can't clear the 31x10.5 spare I have.

My original plan was to get a receiver rack and use it on both cars but along with the clearance problem I also found that no one makes a receiver setup big enough for the vette to match what's on the Blazer.

Thanks guys, I'll take a look at the two BIG catalog guys, Ecklers and MAD.

As far as going with an S-10, I wouldn't mind it but, I don't want another vehicle, I already have 3. I wish I had my CJ-7 down here with me, I could just throw it in the back with no worries.

Thanks for the help, you guys ROCK!:partyon:

ECKLERS:

There are 2 products that contain "bike" for model year ALL:

Part # Description Price
38584 Bike Rack (Holds Two) Reese Discontinued


I would really like to stay away from the Vette towing package route. I'm gonna hit eBay and see what I can find, maybe I'll luck out there.

The kind I saw in use had a bar of some sort attached in the hatch area then had straps that held the frame off the paint. I'll do some more research and see what I can come up with.

THANKS! That would be great!

I've seen 2 different ones that may work, with mods. I want to protect the the paint.
