this is what i came up with, i drew it up and took it to work and had it lasered , i welded it, and tomorrow going back for powdercoat. its 14" wide at the widest and 12" deep, looks like it should do the trick.

Sorry no pics. Just the 2 1/4" mild steel struts to mount to the BR. I cut them trapezoidal to blend with the design and it should be strong enough.
I didn't see the need for lateral gussets, it's just a rack not tool bar on a cat.. Lol...

I have the Victory trunk rack. I must say I miss the old round tube racks of the past. Have a tail bag with build in bungees and plastic hooks. A snap to hook to round tubes, a bit of a pain with the Vic rack. I also often use a cable to secure my jacket and helmet with one of those combination carabiner locks. That too is much easier to lock to a round tube. Just thought some designing their own racks may want to think about what and how they will attach things.
