Looking for a Rack to replace the Trunk

I know I've seen picture's here but have been unable to find where I could buy one.

Or what other idea's are there for adding a bit of bling to the rear deck with the trunk removed.

The supreme irony of life is that hardly anyone gets out of it alive.

Re: Looking for a Rack to replace the Trunk

Spud rack is the way to go.

I left mine embedded in The Bad Lands so if you want to dig one out I may have GPS points of the crash

Seriously though I loved mine and a Helen2Wheels bag on it holds more than the trunk ever will.

Lee, Which bag did you use on your rack? I've got the rack, but haven't really found a bag that I was pleased with. Is there a particular Helen2wheels bag that you liked? How did you attach it?
