Bike crate for 1-3 bikes for sale in England

Myself and my father are starting the trip of our lives travelling from London to India in 4 weeks time.

We leave Melbourne and arrive in London Friday 2nd October and will pick up our 3 KLR's on Monday 5th October (fingers crossed!).

What we have on offer is a custom built bike crate.
Dimensions are: 1800mm long
1600 wide
1100 high

It is an all steel crate, front fork supports, rear wheel support and is suitable for 3 bikes (ideal for KLR's) or can within minutes be converted into a 2 bike or 1 bike crate.
The crate is customs approved, clean, very strong (i hope i haven't spoken too soon) and is perfectly suited for transporting bikes for sea shipping.
We managed to cut down the Cubic Metres to the bare minimum which saved us hundreds of $'s.

As mentioned before, we will be picking up the bikes first thing in the morning Monday October 5th from Felixstowe, on the North Sea coast of Suffolk, England.

Looking to sell the crate for £50 Or near offer.
Please do not hesitate with any questions. With all the trouble we went through to make this crate, i can assure you that it is well worth the buy.

John and Doug

Hey Jim,

Sorry about the late reply. I have just been working frantically to get the last bit of money together for the trip and have finally finished, a good feeling.

Here are the photos of the bike crate. As we did not think of selling the bike rack until AFTER the bikes were on the ship, we did not get good photos of it.

The photos here are not the best but you will get the idea.
The rack is seen prior to painting and of course all the rust has been scrapped off and up to customs standard.
It has steel braced sides and a steel top that in the photos is not yet attached.

And to finish off, we covered it in a thickish cardboard, all the way around. I hope this is all the info you need.
I will be checking HU everyday now so no more late replies.

Cheers,
John and Doug
