My rack building hobby #1
So Meis suggested that I should post some pictures of racks that I've fabricated. All of the racks I build are made with 1/2 inch steel tubing. I have a 110V mig welder for the welding and a very simple basic tubing bender. I have a few pictures of each of the racks and so this will take a while because I'm new at posting pictures here.

A KTM EXC500 rack. KTM doesn't give you much to attach a rack to.

WR250 rack. The owner wanted threaded tabs in case he wanted to add a pelican type box.

They look professional grade.

I'd be interested in one like the XT500 to fit the '71-'73 DT/RT.

The hours spent riding my Enduros is not deducted from my life span.
