Looking good. Wish I have welding skills . Been wanting to buy one (curve rack) but I just canít justify the cost. Way too overpriced .

That looks really good. Show us the curved top box. 😊

I have the curved rack and it can be difficult hauling flat bottomed boxes and cartons.

I designed the curved rack for strapping on flexible stuff...like a jacket, soft bag etc. Fits the look of the bike better than my other two designs too.


All three of my racks are quick changeable.
