They are so dam huge. I took a few mirrors off cars in nelson when I owned mine. Turns out it doesn't fit in a city street

It's cool man but I reckon you could set the horizontals up so it sits above the towball that way you could tow a trailer as well as have that on, for extra load carrying awesomeness!

Also put some gussets under the section below the mesh platform.

 

Also also, if you laid the mesh on top and ran the slide ins through the centre of the box you could weld some angle on the bottom that you stow two lengths of smaller box that you could use as a ramp for pushing them up.

A 60 is about 4.7m long without the pto winch on it

And mine has the PTO winch with huge front bar haha. So add about metre to that. 

And I live in Auckland...

I like those ideas a lot. Neat.

Problem with putting a trailer under it is if you go through a culvert the drawbar might whack the rack.

And depending how high, might not be able to lower the tailgate

It would only need to be the same height as the top of the bumper so no different opening and closing as when the bike was on (obviously if towing a trailer that would be connected first.)
