home made rack
« on: January 27, 2015, 05:03:11 pm »
I decided I had nothing better to do so I built my own rack. Iím not sure what soft bags Iím going to get just yet so I just spray bombed it. Once I decide Iíll add some anchor points then get it powder coated.

Super clean and Very well done. I have been thinking of doing my own too. Just wondering what size/type of tubing did you used?
Many Thanks.

That looks very nice.  I like the larger rear rack to strap gear to.

.75-.06 DOM cold rolled. I didnt use crime Molly because attaching to the plastic anchors in the tank and the aluminum foot rest bracket might be to ridged and break one of them. I would rather the rack bend a little than break one of them. I have had it out and got to test it with a couple normal little tip overs and all is good. Nothing bent or broke. I will be doing some more playing with it in the woods today.

Beautiful, simply beautiful.  Love the curves. What's the weight?

Might be tempted to add some triangles in a smaller diameter tube between the two lower support extensions from behind the footpeg bolt-on points.
This would help reduce buckling if crunch point exceeded.
