Thats right, it's yet another Luggage rack option!

Ok, I know we have a few members on here coming up with luggage racks. I have yet another option. I will post some pics on here when I get them off of my camera. I have a working prototype right now, it still needs some mods to make it available for everyone. Right now you can't use the toolbox with my rack (not a problem for me because mine broke). I am working on making it compatable for those of you who like the box. I will also offer options such as turn signal brackets and helmet lock brackets that will attach to the rack.
The estimated cost is between $75-80 + shipping. I can offer them plain, primed or powdercoated. I just need to know how many members would be interested so I know weather or not to move on with my design process and material allocation.

Count me in for one if they look good and function well. Need to put the brakes on the eBay sharks.

I haven't made the brackets, but I will get on it when I have enough interest and a little more time. I am really running around prepping for The Gathering which is only a little more than a week away.

Looks good. I'd take one at that price. It doesn't bash the rear taillight when under a load does it?
