I've been wanting a hitch rack for my Xterra for a while now and my unemployed status has not helped matters. I was roaming around in Harbor Freight this morning and saw they had hitch mount cargo racks on sale for 39.99.........hmmmmmmmmmm. I got to thinking,I worked for years as a mechanic/fab guy. I have an awsome set of tools,I can fix it! I brought it home,pulled out some old 1" square tubing I've had for a while and after about an hour and a half....new bike rack. I've still got some little design tweeks to make but it's pretty much done.
The basic cargo rack........
An old hacksaw and some tubing.....
A little trial and error design work......
Like a circus monkey on a stolen Harley......
