Jim Blackburn Front Rack

Offering a hard to find Jim Blackburn front rack. Structurally sound, but in need of polishing if you’re not a fan of patina.

$65 shipped SOLD

interesting shape -- is this rack designed to wrap around, and attach *behind*, the fork crown?

Lovely Trek! And a perfect candidate for the rack. I hope to see it installed.

Exactly. The rack slips over the fork, and it mounts at the rear of the crown.

Looks like it belongs in the Trek Catalog. The front & rear JB racks, the 650B wheels, the long chainstays...
I stumbled across one these Jim Blackburn front racks yesterday & plan on mounting it on an 85 Panasonic Touring Deluxe.
