Make/Sell your own Luggage Racks - working Jig for sale

I used to make/sell luggage racks for our bikes that were modeled after the original chrome Fire and Steel ones for the Vulcan 750s.

I did the first couple free hand and then built a jig to bend the racks around. It's much easier and more consistent and seems to produce a very well shaped rack.

Here's the original thread:

https://www.vn750.com/forum/showthread.php?t=18081https://www.vn750.com/forum/showthread.php?t=18081

Anyway, I sold my two Vulcans a little while back. Without an actual bike to do final fitting on, I don't feel comfortable making any more racks. (For fear that the mounting holes would be slightly off).

Was just wondering if anyone wanted to buy my jig? I did put a bit of thought into it and this was about version 3. I had a Fire and Steel rack that I build it around, so that is the style it produces. These racks fit with the stock tool box and original or extended sissy bars. Might be nice to add turn signal relocation brackets for saddle bags?

$100+shipping (what I was charging for one luggage rack) or shoot me an offer.
Also selling a few unfinished racks in this thread ($30).

Oh I see.
The way that is worded sounds like $100 is what is was asking for the luggage racks, not what he wants for the jig.

According to the self-serve kiosk at USPS, Parcel post would run about $15, Priority about $24.

This weighed the jig but didn't ask about size? I haven't been able to get by the PO when they're actually open lol.
