    Rear rack photos

    Hi guys.

    I'm in the process of prebuilding my Fut. Cans ordered and waiting for delivery (thanx, Befbever, you rox), probably a new paintjob and definetely new offroad tires.

    Well, since I'm rebuilding, I'd better do something about my rear rack, it snapped off a few times now and it is currently a total mess. So, I'm thinking of starting over from scratch. So, I need some of you to take some pfotos of rear racks and where are they attached to the bike. Could anyone help? Just to see what I need to do. Hapco and Becker and maybe some other ideas.
    The top part I got figured out, I still need photos of the rack attachment to the side. I believe there are 2 major attachment points. And the top, of course.

    Much apprechiated.

    Off the top of my head, the BEF cans are the only ones that allow you to fit any rack that fits the stock muffler.

    Still no sign of any Slovenians here.

    Inside joke, gentlemen.

    I don't have pics right now but I've just recently fitted a H&B rack.

    if I remember correctly, the mounting points are the rearward grab handle bolts and the bolt that mounts the forward pannier clips (or something near there; they bolt straight up under the seat and they're an absolute bitch to get loose!).

    Damn!! I love the last one, but does it have to be attached to the license plate holder? Do you think that a combination of let's say "last one" and the inside the seat of the "5th one" wouldn't be enough? My previous rack also went over the light cluster and it was a pita to change any bulbs. I was hoping that there could be a way to go around the rear light...

    Where did you get the one in the first 2 pics? Was it custom made, or is it generally available? Any contact info for the company/creator?
