Any chance you could pop a few extra pics up, both sides & from back etc ?
Looks very interesting. Do you think they could make some more up or do they need a bike to model?
Thanks for your help  :thumleft:

Yeah, I'll put some more pictures up.

This is what I have for now - excuse quality.

The guy is a welder that used to work for Link Engineering, doing a lot of stuff for KTMs I think. His name is Gavin and his number is 078 9114157.

I got mine powder coated, which took the price up to 2,200, but the stand alone rack is 1,700 or there abouts.

I do think he'd need a bike to model it on - its almost worth someone getting him to make a few and then selling them on. I climbed up and jumped up and down on it (much to my girlfriends amusement) when it was in place, and was more worried about the suspension than the rack so far. It transfers the weight down to the steel frame by the pegs.

But I need to crash test mine before praising it too widely. Im sure that wont take me too long to do.
