On my father's 110, the trailer hitch has the re-inforcement bars you see on the left picture. When towing a trailer, you actually need to go that low, so I am guessing, the reinforcement is a way to not have to mess with the cross member (i.e. an additional plate that you have to screw with your pinky! ;-) ) and put the load on the frame as well.

BTW, this type of hitch is (was?) commonly used in the agricultural field, so if you want more example, look at the back on many (older?) tractors.

front hitch

i was thinking of getting this front class III receiver hitch (http://www.roversnorth.com/store/p-5...-defender.aspx)

anyone know if I can attach a motorcycle carrier to it like i do to my rear hitch?

they are both class III and both 2" so any reason why it shouldnt hold the same ammt of weight?
here is the carrier i am attaching to the rear and would like to attach to front also:

If it says class III then it has to be class III. Link to a page that contains (hopefully accurate) limits for each class: http://www.motorcycletrailer.com/DMVlinks1.html

CLASS III RECEIVER HITCH - FRONT MOUNT DEFENENDER




Perfect for towing or recovery. Bolts onto rear frame member. Can be incoporated with pintel style hitch. Includes mounting hardware. Also available in a front receiver for a Defender.


OK- The title says its for the rear but the description says it bolts to the rear frame. Better get clarification. Looks like you wouldn't be able to run a steering guard with that in the front.

i contacted roversnorth and the person on the phone said it is not made to hold any weight. he said it is only used to tow a small boat for a short distance and maybe hold a light weight basket.

class III is class III so shouldnt it work just fine for my purposes.

Just installed the one from Rover Accessories that they're selling on ebay. Fit beautifully, nice and tight up under the crossmember.

Why do you have washers on the bolts?

Does it come with a plate for the other side of the crossmember?

Fedex claims that the bulk of the remaining parts necessary to get her back up and running will arrive tomorrow! I think Ray and I are going to have a go at starting installation on Sunday.

Charles made one. I believe he has pictures of it on his site. I'm sure a search will return the post where the link to the pictures is.

It's posted a little higher up in this thread, but here is again

http://lhsw.com/gallery/hitch

I think he wants to buy one though. I'm way too slow at fabbing to be interested in making them for someone else (at any cost)

I think SG or the like make them but you have to call and they special make them iirc.

I have a genuine rear receiver hitch off of my D-90 that is in pretty good shape. Need to figure out what its worth but I'm in Charlotte, NC and shipping would be extra if anyone wants/needs it. Will not be able to take a pic until next weekend though.
