I've sort of stumbled into producing hitches for the VN900 Classic. I made one for myself and then had people asking me to make them one. I've improved the quality having gone to CNC plasma cut pieces. My design is an improvment on another hidden hitch on the market and my price is WAY better. When the tongue and ball are removed the hitch is totally hidden from normal view. Check it out on Ebay. Just search VN900 hitch.

Question

I have them on Ebay auction with a buy-it-now price of $199. Just search "Vulcan Hitch" or "VN900 hitch" on Ebay and there is pictures and lots of info or pm me for more info.
Moe, what bolts did you use for bolting the hitch to the horn arms?
I been looking for bolts that are a bit longer then the factory ones. I have found several that are 8mX40m socket head, but the threads do not go all the way up the shaft, there by causing me to use a spacer, which I think would weaken the fastening.

Any help would be greatly appriciated.

Thanks.

I use a 5/16 x 2 grade 8 allen head bolt. My hitch is 9/16 thick including the spacer. The spacer is welded to the hitch. I put the bolt through from the outside and a nylon locknut on the inside, no washers.
Hope this helps, Moe

Yes, I do. 21/64ths bit. It works out better that way. I wasn't comfortable with having two sets of threads(nuts) on one bolt and we felt it would ensure the hitch was properly anchored with everything on the bolt tightened in snug with one nut.

thanks

I would like to buy one of your hitches...

Nice quality product, fast shipping, easy install. I purchased mine in January 2011 and installed it in March Everythig fit like a glove. BIGMO even sends installation instructions and wiring info...I made a few changes but minor and didnt have to do that all would have worked perfectly. Im very happy with the hitch and the price was spot on and shipping was quick... if you live in the lower 48 and try to track the shipping you will only be able to track it to Canada/US customs once it hit the US I was not able to track but from Canada customs to mid IA was 5 days.. now all I have to do is wait for trailer to come back from paint shop and Ill be set and that should be the end of the week
LET IT RIDE

I am interested in this hitch, but I am unable to find it listed anywhere on ebay. Please let me know how to get my hands on one.

I noticed you use a Scootworks front overdrive pulley. I am wondering how you adjusted the speedometer to read correctly with the new pulley? Also, I did a quick look and noticed they sell a rear pulley as well and was wondering if you have experience with both or would recommend one over the other or both? Thanks for your help.
