project of the day(morning) rear rack for a xt225

project of the day.....
took the old front rack from a honda big red and made it into a rear rack for my roommates xt225..
bent the old braces that came on the bigred rack and flipped the rear handles around as braces and it seams really solid (can lift the bike and wiggle it around without it budging or shifting at all

I don't know....Honda parts on a Yamaha? Could be transplant rejection issues.
Still a serviceable solution.

HOPE that's not a problem - I have Suzuki parts (DR650 pegs), as well as Yamaha (R1 shock) on BOTH my Vs, as well as Aprilia Tuono (mirrors) on my '08...!
