Aluminum Rear luggage plate rack
« on: September 09, 2018, 02:30:42 pm »
Looking for a basic aluminum plate that can be mounted to the rear rack to hold dry bags. I've seen a few that are replacements for the plastic Kawi pc but I'm looking for a wider in both directions plate to simply mount some straps and tie down a bag.  I may fab something up myself but wanted to see if anyone had found a similar product. I'm not looking for a plate adapter for a hard bag but rather a simple plate to mount a dry bag to.

Thanks

Jeff

for around $10 or less, pick up a HDPE plastic cutting board, imperiveous to weather, strong, easily cut/drilled/modified, has always been the 'go to' material for rear racks and such....
can't beat it...pretty much any size you would want is available...
