rear rack in progress

I bought a Nelson-Rigg Tail Bag Link to bag
and started fabricating a rack for it...need to finish the front supports and then get it powder coated.





bag sitting on rack to see how it looks
red line drawn in indicates where front supports will go

I not sure if I'm liking the rack I made for the Nelson-Rigg tail bag...it is ready to go for prepping and powder coating though. The rack and bag look huge on the bike so I made a smaller rack that I'm gonna try out too....this one is also ready to get prepped and powder coated.

Odin your skills are put to good use. That looks great. I have to say that the second one looks the best to me also. Great job.

well thanks, but that's @rws bike, not mine
although I have some skills, they don't include making that rack in that fashion
