Question about rack arms / cb antenna
« on: April 08, 2018, 05:53:40 pm »
Can anyone tell me if the arms for the back rack are solid or hollow? It seems they are made of aluminum. I am in search of a way to mount a cb antenna on the bike and the best idea I can come up with is to drill through the rack or clamp on to it. Either way, it would need to be solid.
Thanks

I do believe the arms are in fact plastic and would not recommend drilling trough them. You can however  drill through the rack.
