Default Rack moved behind backrest

Took the stock rack that mounts in place of rear seat and built a bracket and moved it behind backrest.

Really nice job. Best of both worlds! Cause you know... with "her" on the back you're going to need the extra luggage space!

Default Reinforced

Decided to reinforce and lift up to keep away from fender. Changed the bolt to a longer one with hex head, its easier to tighten then put chrome cap on it. It seems to work good as long as I don't load to heavy maybe 20 lbs. max. It is very hard to get to line up and start the threads, its tight. Cost around 20.00 dollars in steel and bolts.

Default roll bag

Installed metal brackets on roll bag and it fits on rack or seat. The roll bag isn't to big just the right size for a quick store run.

Default different seat

I put the flame seat back on with the rack on back, good for lite load or a small bag. Their is a small novelty helment in the bag.
