Beginning of the stainless cargo rack. Today was a bit frustrating cuz this was what I wanted to work on, but I need a size of stainless tube that I don't currently have... so I'm waiting for it in the mail.
The rack will be integrated with my pannier racks, and will also "carry" my rear fender. Some of the fender mounts are already underway... you can see them in the pic. Considering that this is my favorite type of work (creative fabrication... it sure beats sandblasting!!!) I will probably finish these racks as soon as that tubing arrives.
