Rack for an “other” bike #1
This rack was used on a DT1C, but required use of several nylon cable ties to secure it. Does anyone know what brand bike it was designed for?

I have no idea what it fits... Just have to say that I love your pictures and the way you show the dimensions. Genius.

MarkT. Thanks for your comment on my bike rack photos, but I believe the real geniuses on the page are the moderators and all the clever members that do such great repairing, restoring, writing, and sharing videos about these great motorcycles.

Swoop56 - Your Kawasaki F series choice appears correct. I found a picture of a early 70’s F6 125 and a Partzilla page that appear to show the same rack.


Soon after my dad bought the DT1 he found this rack at a yard sale. He mounted a bowling ball bag to it to use as a trunk. He rode it that way for twenty years, alternating between either the trunk bag or the buddy seat as needed. He would have loved this group.

Rack for an “other” bike #5
I do have one of those racks buried in a shipping container .
My one is for my 350 F5 Bighorn . I'll dig it out over the weekend
and compare measurements . That might help narrow down
whether it is for a 250 / 350 or 125 / 175 or even 100 .

Swoop56- No rush. Would be interesting to know what the market is for these. I’ll bet the bighorn is a beast. I knew one person that had a new Kawasaki 250 Bison, that was a nice bike. My sister had a Kawasaki Coyote minibike about the same time.

Rack for an “other” bike #7
I dug out my rack over the weekend . Sadly it was an aftermarket one ,
so wasn't mounted quite the same way .
So I compared some measurements with my Bighorn , and it looks a shade wide
for the rear frame rails . Further checking on brochures seems to suggest either
100 / 125 / 175 as a possibility . As they all came standard with a rack , they
are probably not in great demand . Still a bit bemused as to why the rear frame
rails might be further apart on smaller bikes .
