    I had one fitted to an Alko chassis on a Bessecar wothout any problems, but do check the max weight available on the rear axle .

    Rapido scooter rack

    I had a rack fitted by Rapido at their factory on my 7087F (Alko chassis) before delivery. It is very well made, very heavy but has been very good. I have carried a 100k Honda all over Europe with no problems. The biggest problem that you might have is the distance from the rear axle. Make sure that your Rapido is plated at 3850k or you might be over weight.
    Because of weight concerns my new van, another Rapido, will be 3500k and I am only having a cycle rack fitted.
