Mounting a rear rack

I just acquired a 1984 schwinn world sport it doesn't have any wholes drilled for a rear rack so I was wondering if anyone makes some kind of adapter?

If you're wanting to run with panniers, then maybe a seatpost clamp like this up top, combined with p-clamps down low.

If you're leaning towards a rack trunk instead, Arkel has a rack that is well regarded in design.

Or you can just contact the touringstore.com about which Tubus Fit Solution would work for you.

If you have a hole in the seat stay bridge, [as expected]
seek out a rack with a center mount to attach there
this is also a top mount point to fit Mudguards.

Your Local Bike shop can even fit both for you.
