    DIY TW200 Rear Rack for 10 bucks

    Hey everyone, here is a video of a Rack that I built for less than 10 bucks. Very strong and light (I can pick the bike up using the rack). I plan on building a similar one for the front.

    1989 TW200
    1998 Diesel Mercedes
    1995 Diesel Suburban
    2005 John Deere BUCK ATV
    1996 Polaris XLT Touring
    1978 Dodge 360ci Midas 24' Motorhome
    16' BELL KEVLAR MAGIC
    17 BELL ROYALEX NORTHWIND
    14' Lund with a 1968 9.9hp & 1957 3hp Johnsons

    We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

    Nice job on the rack and video too.

    I agree with your philosophy about honing your skills whenever you can. They are personally fulfilling and will be extremely valuable when life gets tough. Our comfy life can turn on a dime and there's a lot of people that couldn't even make soup without a can opener, let alone have the ability to take care of themselves and their family's needs.

    I'm a fan of using EMT conduit too. It's handy for all sorts of projects. Just today I started making a gate for my driveway at my off the grid house out of 2" EMT. You have to be careful welding it though. The fumes from the galvanized coating can be harmful.

    I almost forgot...I really like the paint scheme on your bike.

    I like your ideas on life. Along those lines I have had a good time building PVC bows with my kids.

    awesome video ! Cycleracks uses schedule 40 pipe so your technique would certainly work using that as well. The best fitting Cyclerack clone I ever had was 2" narrower and 4" longer (no hump) than the standard Cyclerack and I loved it! Thanks for the video!
