Luggage rack

The bolts holding the rack to the frame, one broke right off, and the other one’s nut, is gone
Both were loose after the last trip

So I took the back plastics off, drilled 6 mm holes right through the frame and fitted bolts through the rack all the way to the plastic mud flap, high tensile steel with washer and locknut

Hope it lasts

I might have overdone it on the weight side, when I go on a trip, I might be heavier in the top box, pump, tyre levers, etc, etc, etc, than what the warning says

It happens to a lot of people. You fixed it the same as I did.
