Well I was going to buy the Happy Trail rack but my wife reminded me that I have to work on my 1968 Volvo 122S
. I like to look around and find cheap ways of doing thing. I tried to take pictures of the Happy Trail rack to a welder but it was to much work I guess. I have had the side bags for about a year and I really wanted to take a long ride here in South Korea. I'll let you guess what I found to make my rack out of....hehehe

I would like you guys to comment on what I have done so far. I kind think its to wide and long.....

Here are some pics and sorry for the bad Iphone pictures



So what is it???

He charged me $10 and did a great job

I am thinking of cutting it off at the bottom above the curve at the cross member

That rack rocks! If you think its too wide you could put 2 storage tubes in the space on the left side, more storage and fills the gap.

I would definitely put the bar between the two bag mounts. I added one after a tip over and the extra support and stability is great. If you tip yours without a support it will kink your rack at the bends and that would suck.

Thanks for sharing!
I personally like the length of the bars. I wouldnt do a thing except add a crossbar, thats just me though.

Here, crappy mock up with storage tubes and crossbar,
