    Hi!

    Here is my luggage rack build in progress.

    Starting out with my tube bender and half inch tube.

    The die is a bit too big but it's better than nothing.







    The base is 30cm by 40cm.







    Next will be the cross bars and back stop.

    Cross bars in...



    Start of the bracket that will come out from under the seat...



    I can't do anymore until my entrenching tool arrives because I want to fit it underneath.

    Time to start on the front rack....

    You might be on to something. Your racks are looking good. Once you get it perfected you may want to offer building and selling them to the TW Tribe similar way the "Jimbo Shield" is done.



    If you have the time and want that is .



    By the way, thanks for posting these photo's of your project.

    Thank you.

    It's a lot of fun, cutting, drilling and welding etc.

    I can't wait to pile on the tent and beer and get out there!!!

    I've thought about a front rack over the headlight. A load on the CycleRacks front rack will block the headlight. I've also thought about a pair of dune buggy pod lights with HID conversions mounted on the rack itself, but higher, high enough to clear a sleeping bag on a low rack. A light bar could serve as a back rest for luggage.

    Doesn't seem logical to put stuff in front of your headlight.

    I'm going to try and attach small side pouches to the front rack but I haven't found anything suitable yet.

    Also need a headlight grill.



    Cross bars put in today.





    Welded rack to under seat mount.

    The brackets from indicator mounts.

    I swapped the flashers and turned them over because they were a little bit too close to the tube.

    Maybe I'll put them back to original, not sure yet, I'll wait till I've finished the front rack.

    Got some nice narrow magazine pouches for the front.

    Looking forward the next workshop evening.

    Sly,



    How is your front rack supported? I can see where it mounts to the upper triple tree bolts, but is it attached elsewhere?



    Nice work. Reminds me of the Shineray military front rack, though yours would be far lighter in weight:

    Wish I could get my hands on a Shineray tank.



    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.

    THAT'S awesome, I haven't seen anything like that on a TW yet! It looks like it bolts into just 2 spots, easy-as-pie to install!





    I assume a nice ammo can will fit on there quite nicely, or something with a similar dimension. .?
