I recently ordered a PackRat rack and they responded to all of the many stupid questions I asked via email. You'll get a response, shoot them a message.

This rack is by far the best rack on the market, by a long shot. He will make small modifications to it also if you ask. I had a second rear hoop supplied for me to weld on to create a trailer hitch. The rack is so strong it can easily tow a single wheeled trailer and also carry a full load in the mermite cans. I can't say enough about this rack compared to the other offerings.

Ditto what Willy said. When I wanted to use Pelican boxes and he was building the racks with the mermite cans he went out and bought a set of Pelicans and then worked with me to get the rack I wanted.

Talking Great racks

I can attest that these racks are great. The web site is wonky and not much interface other than some pics, very small e-mail link and a paypal button. Not sure if it was this forum or another where i asked the legitimacy of the site and the product and got pretty much the same responses here. I asked him to give me the welded on tab for the hemet lock relocation. he did that and I got them in about a week and 1/2. i mounted pelicans on them. They can take an abuse. I flogged my bike over off a huge mound. i got air born and slammed on the left side with all the weight of the bike. They didnt bend or anything. They are very symetrical and allows great spot for a tool tube on the left side behund the pelican where the exhaust takes up this space on the right side.

It comes with the twist knobs and the threaded tabs are gusseted onto the racks. the bags arent going anywhere. For the price they are the best. I looked at them all. researched all reviews and even considered making my own. Some things are not meant for DIY unless you have all the skills and equipment. These are worth every penny. And once you got them, you got them.

I was back and forth on buying one, but you convinced me to buy one. I did Last night and had them add the helmet tab as well.

Thanks
