Default DIY Luggage Rack

Everytime we go we have more gear.

Less than $20 in steel (I already had the release sideplates), minor hand tools, and a MIG plus bit of a rattle can. It's not pretty but it will be covered with my pack, tent, and sleeping bags. As soon as the paint hardens a bit I'll test.

Nice - do you think it could do with a few cross bars? But well done and priced right for sure!

Thx

I don't think they're needed. I can easily push the bike off the stand with it, it's surprizingly sturdy. Doesn't bend at all with any reasonable force I've applied.

Did the shelving rack and had a friend fire up a giant sissy bar.
