You guys do much Anodizing?
A question.
Why is some Anodizing so susceptible to sun fade?
Poor surface preparation?

I do some powder coating. The end result is all about preparation.
Just wondering.

we don't do it in house I have to send it out.

I'm not sure why that is?, there are few different levels of anodize hardness.
and it also might something to do with aluminum class.

hmmm maybe I'll powder coat this as well, we'll see

Not criticizing, just concerned. Aren't you exceeding the weight capacity back there? Or do you feel that the rack is reinforcing the structure. It does look great and handy as a back pocket.

well I guess I have to do the trial and error thing
I think it will be ok, it will be mainly to carry light tent/hammock, bag and few other light camping stuff.
I'll let you know

Thanks

It really does look great and there is nothing like having "Something Different" on your bike. Especially if everyone else wants one.

Great looking one-off rack! As far as weight, that bag looks a lot smaller than some of the Givi boxes bolted in the same place or even the factory Honda box. Depends what you load it up with of course.
