Ha,ha, its the same one I've got my eye on. :o cheap and cheerful, but I think quality is a bit low. Does the job though. Ill keep the rack the same size, but put a couple more cross bars in to support the baseplate.

What do you think?

Just had a look this morning, and the paint hasn't quite gone right (too cold last night maybe) so ill flat it back and try again today with a heater on it. Ill probably be able to post it on Monday.

Here's my 'work donkey' all kitted up for the morning commute. Its what the rack was built for.

Paint is now on, and its looking pretty good. Fan heater made a world of difference to the paint

Doing 12 hour shifts atm, feels like I'm never away from work. I was thinking of moving in there. It'll save me 200 miles per week!

Hiya.
I'm interested in one of these too :-).


Please can you tell me if it allows the pillion handle to be fitted as well ?


Also curious if the 3 fitment holes (as per this pic http://www.auctiva.com/hostedimages/showimage.aspx?gid=336432&image=643854630&images=643854630,643854651,643854666&formats=0,0,0&format=0) are needed for fitting a top box ?


Your feedback and/or tweak ideas would be appreciated :-)




Simon

No you can't fit the pillion handle unfortunately, the box section steel is a bit too big for that. I could possibly add a grab handle to the rack made out of box section.
 As for the holes in the photo, well most top boxes come with a fitting kit that includes adjustable bars that can be bolted through the mounting plate. I've fitted a few boxes to Renntec racks this way in the past.

Hi Stevie,


Please can you PM me your details for this ? I'd be interested in one as per scottsmith1972 with a pillion grab handle if possible :-)

Just finished doing my fz1 rack this afternoon. I made it so its removable for those days when you just want to ride.
At the moment it just slides out, but there will be two location bolts fitted to secure it in place.
