busses with bike storage room...???

Can anyone point me in the right direction in the gallery, I've been looking but haven't come up with anything yet. I'm looking for any busses with pics of bike storage in the back of the bus. (motorbikes)

thanks!

I know I've seen one in the gallery. Someone had three cruisers in the back. Sorry I can't be more help, but I couldn't not respond to a guy who is evidently going in the same direction as myself.

Re: busses with bike storage room...???

ireland: I have a picture of my bikes in the back of my bus Sportyrick GALLERY I can put 4 bikes in the back but not baggers, haven't tried yet, door is only 38 1/2" wide but we just angle the handlebars on my girlfriends sporty to get it in, they're about 35". I have a 12 foot u-haul ramp under the floor that we pull out to load the bikes. I made my own hold downs that screw through the floor into threaded blocks to hold them in place yet can be removed for open spaces. Maybe you can see them in my picture. We use the space for other things like camping gear, a couch or sleeping drunks. Write me if you have any questions. sportyrick

Personally my goal is to get a bagger and another smaller bike in and have a dirt bike strapped to the back. I've been making floor layouts again and again and haven't figured out a way to fit everything in without resorting to a futon/hideabed. If I ever get it right, I'll scan it and upload it to the sight.

Re: busses with bike storage room...???

I have no scanner, but our layout puts both beds as fold up models. No way around it if you want to have a garage in the back. The "master" bed folds up against the wall, and has the dining table on the bottom of it, which can fold down, or stay put.
The kids bed is back farther, and has a low desk/table under it which she can use to color at, play games, or whatever.
Wish I was any good at cad/sketchup, I would simply show you there.

We are going to be storing two motorcycles in the back, along with a few bicycles hanging above them.
The third bike will be relegated to the tongue or deck of the tandem axle car trailer we will have to get to bring our jeep around wherever we are. It will also house some small storage bins for other bits and tools.
