Mounting a lowrider rack on a Vision R40

Anybody have any tips for doing this? I like to do a little touring. My current DF touring bike has lowriders, and I need 'em due to the camping & hiking gear I like to haul along.

My bent is an SWB Vision R40, un-suspended fork, above seat steering.

Advice appreciated. Advice with pictures appreciated even more.

If you're thinking of putting a rack on the fork of a SWB Vision- I don't think it'll work. The panniers will get in the way of your feet.

Talk to Terracycle. Their Easy Reacher rack is designed to carry panniers under the seat of a recumbent. They may have something that fits: http://www.terracycle.com/Merchant2/...ategory_Code=R
