just finished this front rack for Erin "the hammer" Hammes. its built with 304 stainless steel and i just did a brushed finish. its designed to take front panniers, but she is unsure of the kind she wants to use, so we plan on adding mounts for the bags once she gets them. thats the nice thing about using stainless, you can easily go back and braze bits to the rack and you dont have to deal with chrome or paint. this alloy of stainless is also easy to bend in the tube bender, which is a plus. we also may add a light mount in the future.
