    would like to see if anyone is interested in a 'kit' to go on your cycleracks. Having built a set for myself and working on another, it came to mind, others may be interested. Again, just a 'feeler'. Thanks for your time. TIM

    Tinman appears to be a very good name for you. To the average sheetmetal man, you would be considered an artist. Having tools is one thing, knowing how to use those tools makes you a craftsman. Good Job!



    I never thought I needed this much luggage on the T-Dub, but the front rack on you bike looks like something you can really use. I now have the CycleRack, but it's more of a handle than a usable rack. Can you show-&-tell this a little more.



    Thanks,



    BS



    P.S. Will you be at the I-X Center for the International Motorcycle Show?

    as I am about 20mins from the i-x center, of course I'll be there. And barring totally inclimate weather, i'll be on the bike. All be as a spectator though cuz vendors spots are very pricey. The front rack was made from the scrap left over from the rear. Not my best work, but I had intended it to be a prototype. Next thing ya know, I'm sitting on it to test its strength.

    I've often thought about something like these http://www.pnwds.com...ture-bike-build but they are way too big for what I do







    This is bout the size I would look for... The quick connect idea I really love.

    Never said this to another guy, but Nice Rack!
    Only a fool would attempt it, and God help me, I am that fool!

    Thanks for the Show-&-Tell. I like it! Maybe we'll meet in Cleveland. I could proud around in my T-Dub shirt.

    first off, this is simply in the 'feeler' stages. My thoughts are to supply a kit to the guys out there running the Cycleracks. The pictures above are showing my set-up. 'Kit' would consist of the boxes with removable lids, the hoops that hang off 'your' rack, and a cross bar to tie them together. Pricing will be about $550 plus shipping. For those that wanna just get the boxes and do their own mounting, $475 plus shipping.

    secondly, the boxes measure 8x18x14tall. Custom sizes will be offered at a material-cost only, as the fabrication will not change. Yes, I will do custom fabrication to those that want it. Just keep basic shape the same and the price won't vary more than $50 (I'm guessing)

    thirdly, raw box (1) with lid weighs in @ approximately 8lbs.

    hope this helps, TIM
