Left and right ends of hitch #19 attach at ôCö shaped brackets to bumper shock mounting points with bumper shock mounting bolts #44 and #45. (Pic 2 below)
Simon, also in photo 2 is a large crack, with what appears as some displacement to the "C" bracket. Might be time to remove the hitch for some maintenance.

In the big circle is a shadow. Not sure what's in the small circle.

They are:

Germany

The invoice is in German. Looks like
part #:0199.9999.000
Part name: anhangevorrichtung sonderbeschaffung
Kugelhals 0114.0050
and I emailed them for a price. I will see what they come back with. The site is all German and I am not that good at reading it yet... http://www.autoteile-shopping24.de/products/3379914/

Thanks for the info... If I can get one for less than a kings ransom, I would be willing to ship it direct to the folks that want to build in the 2" ball...

good pictures they show the mounting points . not the greatest lay out or construction , I think a better mount could be built . plasma cut the parts / two piece construction / 2" reciver . Maybe I should build 20 or so . ?

Keep us informed about your progress on getting a new Oris hitch. It will be interesting to see if they're still available, and if they are how much they want for one.

Suppose if it comes down to it and there's enough demand to actually implement a redesign, I could be persuaded to pull mine and send it out for reverse engineering.

If it costs way less than $1500 for a factory original one from autoatlanta, then I am really interested in one for my 81.

Out of curiosity I called autoatlanta, both the per and post 86 hitches are NLA. They have them listed on their site but have no availability.

OK, Terry GT, we need you to gin up a bunch. I want a behind the license plate 2" receptical capable of supporting a bike rack and 4 bicycles. GW about 200# with some bounce.

Anything more on this project? I'd sure be in for something. I'm seeing a setup like this in my mind, for the 928. Maybe put a big wing on the back of the trailer to match the car

I am off to Maui for a bit, then I will get the hitch project underway. First thing I need is a dead car so I can fit it up , and later rip the hitch out to test it .
