My homemade rack

With a new Catrike Road, I had to figure out a way to haul it when the 5th is in the bed witch is all summer. I had to hire a company in Des Moines to custom bend the stainless and do the welding, but it's still my design and I'm tickled to death with it. I just got done cutting all the groves for the stripes and lock. I'll post one more photo when it's hooked up to the trailer later. First trip in a month or so. I'm sorry if the photos are to large or to small. Computers are not my game.

Custom building is a good deal. It can be the exact size and shape needed for the bike or trike at hand. Quite often one size fits all doesnt really.
