    Great job on one of the great classic bicycles :D Someday I'll get around to restoring mine . Everytime I find a tank for sale , I don't have the money , if I have a little money , I seem to find another project instead :?

    I was thinking the same thing.....it looks like some kind of rack inverted, with wings.

    hi guys,sorry for keeping you waiting :D ...thanks for all your positive comments.
    @dogdart,@gcrank1...yup 8) it's a steel rear rack for bikes...just added the wing for stability...this racks are a bit common here...back in the day,the old folks used this bikes for transportation and business...they would carry sacks of rice or vegetables to market,some sell food or snacks...that's why they needed steel racks for heavy loads...that is also the same reason why nowadays we are having a hard time looking for their original racks...some misplaced them or sold them to scrapyards,to be melted down for new metals :cry: ...

    anyways here it is :D ...
