    I need to build cool rear rack for the cruiser that I'm building. Does anyone have pictures of their home made racks or carriers?

    XC204 I always thought that was a great rack.

    not really home-made but I customized an existing rack.

    Randy,
    I have seen a version of that rack before and I liked it. I like yours. I had been thinking about doing one like it, but in a natural distressed finish. Right now, I'm in the planning stage of how to make the frame and attach it to the bike.

    Great posts guys. I think that I need som ething that I can modify and make fit rather than build from scratch. I love the jet plane theme. What is that...a F-22 Raptor ?
