Like what? 600 pounds? LOL.

If the rack is "small" you can always bolt a larger plate on top of it. I suggest U bolting a stainless steel cooking grate from a BBQ grill. All the room you need.

McNeuby had one he posted a couple of times, did he sell it? I recall it was in really great condition.

edit: He may have sold it, didn't say so, but he posted one from ebay about a month after this thread:

That looks good. Might have to copy cat you, how did you make it chrome? Did you send it to a chrome shop or is it polished aluminum or stainless?

The side pieces came off a Suzuki Boulevard, i picked them up at a swap meet, (peeling) chrome over aluminum.
Cross bars are threaded rod through nickel finish curtain rod/aluminum tube.
All bolted to the extended turn signal bracket

Not exactly the same but I don't think they make mine anymore. Anyways, They're hard bags and have a mounting kit included. Gives you everything you need to bolt right into the... whatever the thing that holds the turn signals is, and provides spacers to clear the shocks. If you measure right, you don't have to get the Fire and Steel kit, but can bolt right into your existing setup
So, if I buy these bags, I don't need to buy these supports?
