Jealous of the stickies Art, seems they have a good amount of tread left. Get rid of those ugly flares haha.

Interested in the tire carrier.

How it connects to the Clevis mount is that permanent? Because i like the idea I would just go on both side. I need a tube bender, this is exactly what I'd like to make

One side is plenty strong I might taper the tube at the bottom and plate the hole shut. Made the upper mount, now just 2 plates on the cage so I can pin it in place. Finish weld it and clobber some paint over it and call it good

I like it. Are you going to get bolts to fit so it doesn't rattle loose or is it pretty stout as is.

I may copy

The shackles should be fine as pivots ones you tighten them you kind of squeeze them together which keeps them from loosening. Otherwise there is always red loctite.
The upper mount goes through the tire and to the cross bar of my cage.
Don't really care for the batwings on the genright setup

Art that looks fantastic! I am not a fan of rear mounted tire carriers but that looks very clean and solid. Not bad at all, very nice work!

I definitely like it. Much easier to mount a big tire and it actually lifts up pretty easy.
