Looks good on my phone.
You could go a tad bigger in size if you want. When enlarging them to have a look at the details it gets a bit hazy.
BTW nice work, that rack

I think 800 x 600 is a good size for speed of loading and clarity.

When I made up a rack for my plunger A7, I ran the supporting strut from the rack to the frame bolt at the top of the plunger where the mudguard stays also bolt on. Why? If some heavyweight friend sits on the rack (not altogether unknown) all the weight is taken by the mudguard which will give, along with the stays. You need a label as came with the rack for my wife's Yamaha "Max load 2kg". You could in fact sit on that rack with impunity.

Great job with the rack, should start producing and selling them :O)

Those 800 x 600 jpg's looks fine here, for landscape width use anything from 800 x * to maybe 1600 x * (or even up 2500 x * if wanting to provide possibility for zooming into more details). For portrait use the first number as height.

Only restriction is the 1500 kb (1,5 mb) file size, to curb any attempt at posting the 9 x 6 meters large pics that comes out of phones and cameras these days :0)

Smaller pics = fast loading (many are on slow or metered internet), larger pics = more details.

 Nice rack- a bit lower would keep the weight down

Ok duTch cheers, I will call it my mk1 and revise production after my hols . The new Black Sheep Dutch version will be lower and struts mounted in different position capable of carrying Raymond .......for the time being all it will be carrying is part of the wifes bum and some sandwiches for lunch plus some tinnies on the way back to the campsite  *smile*
