I am trying something new, I hope it works. I am going to try to build a two piece rack, one will be small but strong mounted to the bike, the second one will be larger to hold extra fuel and gear, but can be removed when not on long trips. I was able to pick up an extra frame to use as a mock up, it really makes things easier. I will be welding the rack to the rear peg mounts, I think this will add strength. Here it is so far, next thing to do is add a bar from the back of the rack to the rear peg mounts, this will add more strength and a place for saddle bags.
