Carrier/luggage rack for a plunger frame
« on: 10.11. 2012 00:42 »
Folks,
I'd like to have a luggage rack for my plunger A10 and might have a go at making one. Do you have any pictures that I could have a look at showing attachment points etc.?

Cheers.

Not sure if this will help Neil but maybe some ideas.

I recently fitted a pair of "panniers" to my bitsa plunger A10. They are actually ammo boxes painted black. Cheap to buy, cost me $8 each here in AUS. They provide enough space for some tools, a jumper, water proof trousers and a few bits and pieces. There waterproof as well.

Probably not what you are after if you want originality but a cheap way of providing some extra carry capacity.

Brian,
Yes I quite like that idea. I'd still like a rack though.

By the way my bike also has a single saddle.

This one I go from C & D Autos about 12 years ago. Don't now if they still do them. It's okay but could do with a few 'mods' to make it a more 'solid' fixture to the bike.

Thanks. That is very simple; shouldn't be too tricky to manufacture.

Hi Neil

 A friend made this one up for me. Ideal for mounting a box or just strapping something on to. I had a Craven but it looked odd to me so I went with this one.
