    [Brompton] Porteur rack for front carrier block?

    Hello

    I'd like to be able to carry boxes or regular bags using the front carrier block.

    I saw this picture that shows a small Nitto porteur rack hooked on a Brompton:

    Does someone know if a larger porteur rack is available?

    Thank you.

    I fabricated a modification of one of their older Steel Bag support racks ..

    I know of no ready made of the shelf ones .. who sold your example you show?
    Nitto doesn't sell that stuff in the west as commonly distributed as the big wheel bike stuff..

    though rather narrow, vs the 15"W 1/2" tube, of the regular steel tube brazed rack, it looks sturdy.

    With the Mounting points, shown, the width of that Nitto, shipped in probably from JP,

    could be augmented with a subassembly that is wider .. bottom & back .

    That's cool. Very cool. I can't help you, but if you find out more information about who produces this tasty item, please share. Thanks!

    No one sold it to me, I found this picture in a Brompton-related forum.

    I'll get the carrier block and see if I can find someone who knows how to build racks.

    in addition to the head tube carrier Block, You may buy a Bag frame for the nylon receiver,
    and then substitute a Stainless tube structure, for the Aluminum,

    and PopRivet that back together..

    The receiver has also been fabricated of steel by other independant Brompton Modifier's shops

    like Steve Parry, in UK .

    NB some of those A to B Reprint pages are rather dated..
