Here is string of rack pictures:

These are the HB racks on my project bike..

The bracing to the foot peg frame is good but this little strut up to the panel mount seems overkill and makes more of a pain to get the panel off...


The rear portion hangs off a saddle plate made of spring steel which bolts to the rear center subframe cross member and I have a fastener that connects the fender to the rear brace which bolts through behind the license plate...

The HB racks on my project bike are made from heavier stock than the MS units on my main bike pictured below...


The MS also brace to the foot peg bracket but without the extra strut...

How they fasten to the rear...


I like the way the rear fastens to subframe with a box clamp rather than the HBs saddle plate...

Here is the underside showing the clamp, don't mind the mud as this is my daily commuter to work... If I wash this one day it looks the same the next as I have a 30 km comute on dirt tracks to get to my worksite...



The Adventure fuel tank bracing..
