    I'm looking to get a bike rack for my 360. Has anyone put one on a 360 yet? If so, pics and a reference would be appreciated.

    A fellow Maranellist ;-) managed to put one on his car, so I would not rule a Modena out ...

    Art,

    Sportsrack (the company) is all over the country and one of the owners (Tom Mollerus) did my install for me in about 2 hours on the site. Amir Rosenbaum's F40 took a lot more work.

    The rack itself is excellent. I have carried a full suspension mountain bike from Sacramento at ~75-80mph (not interested in trying more), and have done 150 with the rack on.

    It definetly adds drag and wind noise, but people are in shock seeing it.

    I can pull it off and put it back on in ~15 minutes, and there is no paint scarring. I have been using some helicopter tape to help me remember where to put it on.

    I will find Tom's contact info and pass it along to you.

    PS: He had never done a maranello.

    Here are a few pictures from before. I will take more detailed pictures - or if you are showing up for this drive this sunday (meet @ FoSF @ 9am...at least show up in the morning to gawk a little and say hello) ... i can show you the whole rack setup then.

    PS: It helps if i actually add the pictures...

    BTW, I added a wheel fork. Simple with anti-spin pad.

    Don't forget to get some ramps. It's going to be hard to lift your motorcycles up that high.

    Vincent: we know he's having Yakima do a custom "kart" loader so he can finally bring the 360 to the karting days! :D Now how cool is THAT? ;)
