This is the way I place the lights perpendicular to the ground what the carrier is up–stowed. Withe the post removed, the spring holds the light closed in the carry position–velcro not used.
This DIY is finished!
Nearly finished–tomorrow: a spring for tension & velcro for lighting in carry mode
Day 3–Completed van wiring
This project has required lots of time. I have more to do. Next, a wiring harness for the bike carrier. I am using lighting because the carrier sits back quit far from the van [partly because of an 8″ hitch extender so I can open the rear doors]. The distance and possible loss of carrier visibility concerns me.
They were inside. Times have changed…
It would have worked well, except the van’s purpose is to facilitate photography. Most significant mod–Photo Booth/Photography on the Go.
Both 2016 and 2017 had very little cycling. The cycling I did was on my Crank Forward [Faye].
Now, it is time to be on the road again! The bike carrier you see is from Rhino-Rack. It fits in a Curt 2″ Trainer Hitch purchased at eTrailer, installed by my friends at Rhudy’s Car Auto & Accessories.
