I recently purchased a Himiway all-terrain fat tire bike.Depending on who you talk to the bike weighs between 72 and 75 pounds with battery. I have a Mustang GT which has a reasonable size trunk but there's no way this bike will fit in there.

I have found a trunk mounted rack by Allen that will hold the weight especially if you take the battery off but now the dilemma is how to attach the bike to the rack because of the crossbar design with a dip in it. I immediately thought of the accessory crossbars that are usually use for step through bikes but I haven't been able to find anything that will handle handle the weight of this bike.

So my question is has anybody come up against this before and is there a solution.

you would have to have a receiver installed on your Mustang but receiver mounted bike are the best way to carry heavy bikes.
