Quickie rear rack...

I am heading down to Birmingham from Brooklyn for the Barber Vintage Motorcycle Festival. Had been meaning to grab a ktmduals rear rack for the trip - since I find myself always wanting my pack a little further back from my seating position.

Time & funds crunch left ordering out of the question, so I fab'd up something quick - a tip of the hat to his much nicer, more refined creation.

Had the side from an old Apple desktop lying around waiting for a rainy day, and decided to use it as the top plate. Couple pieces of 1/4" bar stock for the "arms" and we were off to the races.

Thanks to ktmduals for the inspiration. Should get me through the 2000 mile trip with a little more comfort.
