Here are some pics of my MDF mock-up:







I like it so far. I just have to put it on the bike and see how it fits, clearances and all.

Pics will be coming soon.

    Wolf- How are you cutting out the MDF?  I assume not by hand since you went to the trouble of cutting out all of the decorative holes as well.

    That's what I thought.  Man, I need one of those.  I would be designing so much stuff.

    That looks amazing. You should design stuff for production.

    Low and Mean take note, you should hire Wolf for some sweet stuff.

    We have several CNC milling centers in our cabinet shop.
    Good enough for test runs. Got to get these parts water jetted by someone else.
    I would love to have one of those too.

    I really like the design, I think it is awsome.  My only concern would be how big are the two mounting bolts on each side, and how much weight can they support?  It seems like a fair amount of torque will be applied to those bolts.  I would hate to have it fail a mounting bolt and fall down on the fender or worse.  I think it will look great.

    Here are the pics of the Sissy Bar mounted to the bike.
    All possible angles to give you guys an idea what it looks like.

    I feel very comfortable about the attachment. Prior those bolts were holding the fender struts and rear fender. In comparison to supporting a passenger, this situation as a luggage rack only should be very strong.

    Here are the pics, showing the sissy bar and luggage rack loaded with my main bag.

    Feel free to give me your thoughts.









    Thanks!

    That's gonna be sweet!  Now you just need to find a replacement for your main bag that is made of brown leather. :)

    Agreed! And I like your logic on the strength of the rack, Wolf. You read my mind. I really like the wolf silhouette you added, too. If only you could make it a QR rack. Hmmm.... :thinking:
    Sometimes it's a little better to travel than to arrive.
