Blackburn Custom Eyelets to mount rack on bikes w/o dropout eyelets

No issue on mounting the top portion of the bike, I just need a solution for the bottom of the rack where there are no braze-ons near the dropouts. Anyone have suggestions or know where I can get the blackburn custom eyelets that are made for this exact issue?

I haven't seen the Blackburn eyelets for quite a while, but have you considered using P-clamps? Should be available in a variety of diameters at any hardware store:

If you have a lathe you can make your own. Also know that the Blackburn ones didn't fit all drops and the flange could interfere with the chain if clearances were too tight. Andy.

P-clamps don't grip tenaciously enough not to slide down the seat stays until the drive side interferes with the chain, but you can put hose clamps beneath them to avoid that.

+1 On a tour a few years ago a friend had fitted his eyelet-less bike with a rack using P-clamps. The clamps did tend to slide down the seat stays until we stopped at a hardware store for a couple of small hose clamps and tightened them below the P-clamps. Problem solved.

Or Consider a rear rack that is supported by the QR skewer.. passing thru the axle.
