Talking A Motard Rack

I have been searching for a tail rack for my bike, but I have failed to find a decent rack in my price range. So I decided to make my own. A friend of mine perfected, programmed, and machined the part, but I sketched the basics. We spent all day Christmas Eve cutting it, and it's done!

(Pics were taken by the iPhone and came out beautifully!)

Our outline:
2904771220104582047S600x600Q852151263800104582047S600x600Q85

So we took a slab of 6061 aluminum 3/8" thick w a finish:
2943903270104582047S600x600Q85

@ the Mill:
2593095420104582047S600x600Q85
2095572880104582047S600x600Q85
2133123930104582047S600x600Q85
2970246040104582047S600x600Q85

The finished product!
2002482070104582047S600x600Q85

Completely custom designed, I have an original rack for only the cost of materials. All that is left is powdercoating and screws, if that.

Merry Christmas!

lots of em






Very nice job indeed. Lemme know if you want it powdered, we have a nice black wrinkle in stock and also a flat black texture, kinda like very fine/smooth grit. both look real nice and are very durable to strap usage.
I do a lot of stuff for an atv company that builds lift kits etc in the black and gray wrinkle we have.
I also have basically any other color ya like in stock as well, high gloss, semi and flats.

You can market them on the various dual sport forums and offer em PC'd any color, they will sell like hotcakes, , I would have bought one for my DR.

Looks awesome

I think SFT2 does machine work too, I remember someone posting up a wicked head bearing tool they made a while back. Not sure if it was him or not but just throwing it out there.
