    Here are some pictures of the factory built unit that is on my bike now and the home made one I had before. The hand made one worked fine I just ended up with the other one and decided to install it.

    The hand made one is available if anyone wants it.

    My previous picture for some reason did not post. Trying again.

    I put a markland on my 91 VR. The hardware between the ball and the hitch plate is the accessory adaptor from Rivco so I can attach a flag holder or a cooler or a golf caddy.

    I have attached some pictures of a Markland hitch, installed on my 86. I had to install a beefy shim under the bag attachment, to bring the hitch low enough to clear the light bar. The mounting tabs on the chrome slide-in portion of the hitch are blocked by the light bar and a work-around will be interesting. Since I have nothing to pull, the hitch is just another "chrome do-dad" to keep clean.

    I know some will laugh at me, but I decided to share pictures of my homemade hitch anyway because it is so simple and it works. For those who will think it may not be safe, I can only tell you that it can be removed and remounted very easily and my friend Mother borrowed it to carry a loaded cooler on his 86 VR on his extended trip to Alaska and throughout Western Canada and USA. I remounted on on my own 88 and hauled my trailer with it on our 13,000 km "Venture West". It has never shown any sign of stress or slippage and it has enough strength that I can stand on it.

    The first picture shows the hitch from behind - basically just a ball mounted on a flat plate. the second picture shows how the flat plate is attached to two bars which are each attached by 3 ubolts to the frame of saddlebag rack. (When I bought the bike, there were only 2 ubolts and I added the third).
