Those are nice, most are all warped or covered in paint.

I'm not sure I would ever take my 914 to snow (and salty roads) but will definitely enjoy a nice bike rack. It will be great if that ski rack can turn into a bike rack.

Probably not. A bike mounted perpendicular to the roof puts a lot more torque while cornering than skis. The windshield surround will suffer.

I used to sell Yakima and other racks when I managed a bike shop and saw a lot of screwed up cars when guys tried to fit a rack to a sports car.

Well significantly more effort that anticipated. The tool was not quite right, but it's finally doing what it should.

Production cost went up but I will honor the GB price. So far only 28 sets tentatively spoken for lets see if we can get the 100 to make this work at the lower price I'll gite it another week maybe we can

Pictures are a little grainy Blake's is better , but with a camera phone some down and dirty pics

I have a short run we did on these while proving the tool. Full production will be in about a month when we can schedule the tool back in as we are buried on a few other projects that we have to get out 1st.

PS ski rack is in the works now!
