Im getting a scooter on monday http://www.sunnymotor.com/images/pro.../mc_jm5027.jpg i was wondering if anyone had a surfboard rack for a scooter. Ive seen some places selling them but wondering how the wind drag affects it, and also does anyone use a bike rack for a scooter?

Scooter Surfboard Rack
Here are a few of my racks. I made them out of PVC and they work well. Thinking of selling the bike BTW, 2009 Honda Ruckus.

That whole setup is pretty badass!
Thanks! It is fun to ride. When I first put the board on there I had it way too far forward and when I came to a stop I realized that I had nowhere to put my foot on the right side . I had to jump off the scooter on the left side and pull with all my weight to stop everything from falling onto the racks and board. I have since learned that when coming to a stop shift your weight left so it will lean it that direction.

dam that does look sick.. i wish i was good at crafting things like that.. hows the wind drag when riding it though? does the surfboard catch wind and pull you to the left or right at all when your going fast?
ps why you getting rid of it the ruckus are tight and with that board rack it makes even cooler

That is a sweet ride! Will get up to 55?
Man this is an old post. I sold the ruckus last year and bought 2 new boards and a wetsuit with the money. I never needed the cash for the boat. Sorry Tdoaks I don't remember in detail how I did it. I know that it was attached to the frame with a pvc T that I split down the center and screwed in. It cost about $20 if I remember right. Everything was bought at Home Depot. One thing I will say is having the board on there cut the max speed by 20%. Hope this helps.
It could get up to 55 on a downward hill with no board. I weigh 190 lbs and if I remember right the top speed on a flat with the wind at my back was about 45 mph.
