Rear rack for R90/6?

I would like to add a small rack to my daily driver R90/6. Is there a stand-alone rack (one that doesn't require mounting to side case racks)? Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Question: What pressures are you all running in these tires? I've been running 32 psi front and 30 psi rear. Am I in the ballpark? Thanks in advance.
