Disc rando back for a rack

After several thousand miles, it's time for a custom rack on this rando bike. Quite the eclectic mix of parts on this one. Not too many bikes out there with disc brakes AND downtube shifters!
This rack will be just big enough to carry a small bag and a few clothes while being small enough to be unobtrusive when unloaded. Curves and rocket shape for cool points too!

Yeah, it's really that cool. My favorite build ever...don't tell anyone I forgot the fork struts at home!

That's to the hard work of Dave Porter, we got some custom bikes into the most exclusive car show in the Southwest. The Santa Fe Concourso....think Pebble Beach on a golf course. Where else are you going to get Al Unser and Sir Sterling Moss checking out your bikes?
I brought a Tour Divide racer and the retro style 29er. I left the rando bike in the truck as I forgot my other stand along with the fork struts. Didn't matter though, it was a fantastic day. I'd go to every bike show if they were all like this!
