Lofi Porteur Rack #2

Lofi Porteur Rack #2
Originally uploaded by jimgskoop
I fabbed up a quick-n-dirty front rack for Dawn's Bianchi Milano on Sunday. The crate is a street-found Coca-Cola soda crate that has perfect dimensions for a front cargo rack. I bought some 3/4" x 1/8" aluminum flat bar and 3/4" aluminum tubing from the awesome hardware store around the corner (DBS) to build the struts and fork-crown attachment. This rack was intended as a test-bed -- if she likes it I'll braze up a real rack from chromo tubing -- but it turned out quite good, and doesn't look half-bad either.
