'Bent Rack for Trail-a-Bike?

Hey folks,

I am looking for a rack to fit over the 20" wheel of my son's Trail-a-Bike. I tried fitting a 700c rack that I have, but it just wouldn't fit. Not only that, but the struts that would connect to the seatstay braze-ons were much too short. I don't need to carry panniers, but I would like to carry a trunk bag or basket to go on family picnics, etc.

I have seen pics of some racks here (particularly on tadpole trikes) that I think might work. Any links or direction would be greatly appreciated.

I don't know if any of these will work, but here is the link to Hostel Shoppe https://www.hostelshoppe.com/cgi-bin/search.pl?category=201500

They have a good selection of 'bent accessories and parts. I love their customer support, so they might be able to tell you if one of the racks they have would/might work.

Also, since you are not looking to carry much weight - if interested send me a PM with an email address and I can send you my pics where I modded a rack to fit my b*o*b trailer w/a 16 inch wheel.

I'm on a tour so it might be a few days until I get a PM and reply.
