For panniers? I don't think you need a luggage rack. The rear shocks offer lateral support. All you need is to bend a little piece of metal to act as an extra heat shield for the exhaust. Super easy.

I cut and bent a piece of an old construction road sign. Just used one attachment point - the shock mount on left side. Then put on some panniers that I picked up for $30. I modded some $12 ATV tank panniers and put on a Wolfman enduro tank bag. Also used a piece of 3" ABS for a tool tube. I cut some small holes in the skid plate and used large hose clamps to attach it.
It turned out to be a really cool little adv bike.












They're a bit short on range though.


I'm in the process of building a modern version. I'm starting with a KLX140L chassis. (the big wheel version)
