I'm not quite finished with this, note that there's a Watsen Design t-sig just below the rail on one side- you can see the bracket on the pic of the other side. The tail light's getting it's bracket "arms" trimmed. I'll start a thread when it's all together.any body got a gt luggage rack for sale,Im trying to prototype a grab rail so a broken or bent rack will do ,but Id still buy a good one too.so far I made one from steel bar id rather follow the bends of the stock rack.
The grab bar started life as the standard Ducati GT1000 rack. I just cut the rack off, ground off the stubs & welds, the re-chromed. I too looked at fabricating to make something a little smaller, but my wife really liked the security of the factory piece. After some thinking, I also realized that the bottom of the loop- where it goes "out" before it goes "up" was very necessary. It provides the clearance needed so you can remove the seat by pulling it back. So, I just decided to mod the factory piece. I'll try to get the full thread up soon.hey jeff,that exactaly what I had in mind.is that fabracated or store bought?nice looking item.
