i made my own but i also hardtailed the frame so dimentions not much good to you, good trick is to make one out of cardboard first to see what looks best, or look in the home and kitchen shops to see what chrome racks they have my mate made his from three stainless ones and it looks the business

Doug "quote for the post" Simmons (from yahoo) had made one from a short backrest frame (the stock frame that holds the toolbox and seat in place). If its cheap you are looking for, this may be the way to go.

I too made one from the stock backrest. I made a couple triangular shaped brackets, made small saw cuts to the bottom of the toolbox, and used holes already there for attach points. Check out the photo in my gallery.

Hi I live in the UK and have spent to much money on this bike so am looking for a cheap way of making a rack.
I'm interested to know what you could use from a home and kitchen shop, I am hoping to put a small top box on it, I like the idea of using a sissy bar but these are rare and hense expensive over here.

Cheers Andy

I have the design in my head for a simple rack that can be made with home tools: hack saw and drill - that should look good, cheap to build, and be stout enough to hold a small trunk. I might be able to put it up this weekend. My idea is not new, it's a spin from my 77' Wing project.

There are some bicycle rear racks that, with some creative engineering, could work decently on the Vulcan.
