Ok. I am currently working on that. It will accommodate a full length piece that will extend over the seat as an option. I will have a full update shortly and will keep you posted posted.

Another thing to note, or at least make sure folks are aware of, is aftermarket seats. I have been looking into getting a seat concepts seat and noticed in some pics the rear seat is a bit wider and higher. Folks with an aftermarket rear seat might have a fit,net issue with you rack.

Just something to keep in mind, and a free thread bump for you!

I'd like to see a version that takes the place of a pillion rack and rear rack both..so it would sit lower on the bike...i do like the idea of being able to fit a rotopax under it or anything else you can squeeze in there. maybe one where you could attach a butt rest so you don't slide back on the seat or something....Us S10 guys just want it all!!..lol I'll keep checking back on this! Good luck!

Update:
I am working on the shorter version of the rack. It will not cover the passenger seat, but I am also working on a bolt up extension for those who might want to extend it over the seat. It will also be offered in "raw" or powder coated finish. It is taking a little longer than I hoped but hope to have something in the next week or so. I really appreciate everyone's patience.

Well, it's taken a little time to get this almost done, but here are a couple of pictures of the revised rack. It is a single rack, with provisions to attach an extended top piece if desired. This one should be completed next week, and I will have prices by then as well if anyone is interested in one.

No, you do not have to remove the main rack in order to attach or detach the longer rack. This version is also all 1/4 plate as opposed to the earlier version being partly 3/16 plate.

Update:

It still needs to be welded out as whats shown here is just tacked. The black screws fastening the 2 plates together are temporary and only for test fitment. The final ones will be stainless steel. As stated in a previous post, all plate is now 1/4 inch thick. I would recommend for those who stated they might want one in raw aluminum, unless you are planning on your own finish, I would really consider a powder coated one as I belive the raw aluminum will oxidize.

Hopefully I will have this completed and finalize the pricing by this weekend.

Hope you like it.
