This is a longshot so here goes, 63 c10 in for sale section at the moment, low price, easy build, 8`2" x 5` bed (fleetside) Tailgate 16" and folds flat, will easily convert to air suspension for lowering and loading etc etc, truck is allready lowered,
Cool truck with plenty of origional patina,

Most old pickups are 6 foot 4 bed, BUT, if you leave the tailgate down they would carry your bike.

How 'bout that '70 Dodge in the for sale section. Looks like a longbed, you'd have to ask.

None of the Elkys or rancheros would get a 7'9" inch bike in with the tailgate closed. Mid 60s Elkys and 72-78 Rancheros have the longest beds.

Had the same need a couple months back so I got this:
