Hi ... newbie here ... had a search round but cannot see anything on the forum about this so will throw this out there ...
Just wondering if there is an opportunity to have some kind of list of things fellow members would be happy to loan out for a period of time , tools, jacks, axle stands , maybe extend to things like run flats , boot racks , services or an extra pair of hands etc ..
Reason I ask is that I will be touring France for 3 weeks in September and the missus is adamant we aren't taking the MX unless we have a spare wheel which means that I will have to get a rack & space saver wheel for my NC MK3 (finding it very difficult to identify a 17" space saver to fit my Mk3) . I really don't want to buy them as I will probably only use them once and they will sit around in the garage gathering dust .
Does any member have these items they would be willing to loan or rent out for 3 weeks? If not I will buy them but am happy to add them to a list for other members to borrow.
On my bike owners club there is a section that does just this, basically any member who is happy to loan/rent things out is added to a list which has the details of the item(s), whereabouts, rental costs if applicable , and each item has to have a deposit paid before being loaned.
I have various tools, Mig welder, Axle stands, trolley jack , air compressor etc that I would be happy to add to the list and loan to fellow members , also although not a qualified mechanic or anything I am happy to provide an extra pair of
hands on the occasions that jobs need them !.
Anyway, thanks for taking the time to read this
If anyone has a boot rack and a 17" space saver they would be happy to loan in September then please let me know , also very interested to hear what you guys and gals think of the suggestion.
ps ... does anyone know what type of space saver I need and where I can get it?
