Smile Dragster Rear Luggage Rack

Ok, So i know it's not a touring bike, but there are a few who want to take it on trips longer than a day and/or maybe take some luggage with them ;-)

So to that end and considering i was bored in the workshop this evening, I decided to tackle the problem, ok not really a problem there, but i love challenges & self inflicted projects, so set to work making a prototype rear rack for the Dragster.

A few hours later, here's what i came up with......yes maybe not the best looking thing in the world, but what luggage carriers are? It's simple, practical and serves a function, at least no horrible scaffolding everywhere and it can be fitted or removed in 2-3 minutes, 3 allen bolts, that's it, No mods to the bike needed & very strong, i had my 9 year old daughter sit on it and it held her weight with no problems. ��

I now have the final template, so i intend to get one laser cut from 6mm Aluminium & powder coated in the the next few weeks, so if anyone else is interested in it, then please let me know so that i can gauge interest, as it's possible i could get a batch made up, the more i get made, the cheaper they would be. Alternatively, if you're handy in the garage, then you could easily knock one up of your own.

Nice work there mate, I'd be interested in one. Where are you on this wee planet of ours though as postage might be restrictive.
edit// meant to say I also have a Kreiga bag so looks perfect for that.
Oh, and has that bike ever seen a road, looks bloody clean.

I see some UK sockets in the background so postage to Spain would be fine.

Yes mate, i am in the Uk, so posting to Spain shouldn't be too far out of the relms ;-)
No not yet worse luck, waiting for this crap weather to brighten up so i can go out and abuse it, a few trips planned for the summer with possibly Wheels and Waves in Biarritz, hence the luggage rack lol, can't wait.

Hi guys.
I did something similar with my dragster - one thing you might want to do is replace the M6 screws with studs and nuts - after taking mine on and off a handful of times, I noticed one of the screws had come loose from the regular bouncing and flexing while riding and the thread felt a bit weaker, so I loctited in some threaded rod and put flange nuts on the top instead - much easier to torque up consistently.
