I made my own front rack because I wanted to incorporate a hack windshield mount into it.

Here is a link to the video.

Yet another option....

SidecarLes built a set that we copied off of a Red October. We made ours stronger and had them powder coated and Les added a matching fender rack. The tubing we bent with a commercial tubing bender from the hydraulic shop. I'll try to post some as built photos as I find them. dd

I went with the Raceway...

I went with the Raceway Nose Rack for my Arctic and I too got it because I thought it looked good. I have found two good uses for it. It's perfect for holding an 8 pack of Guinness and I use it all the time to hold my helmet.

Here's mine loaded for a trip with the nose rack in "helmet containment mode":

Front Rack

G'day, I got my rack from Raceway Services. I use it to carry my first aid kit when touring and as somewhere secure to put my helmet.

Extra weight forward of the sidecar axle especially on the nose is really dangerous. I know this from experience. Your rig will ill handle at speed. I almost got sucked into a semi truck a couple of times on one trip.

Lots of good storage ideas in this thread. I put a top box that I had laying around on the rear rack my Ural. Handy for light stuff.



Back rest is nice.

We still have the tooling to make both the front and rear racks for the Ural, The front rack you do not want anything heavy on it.

I'm glad we had the front rack for lighter stuff. I already had a loaded tub, panniers, soft trunk and other shit all over the bike.

No wonder they call our Urals tractors but you might be overdoing it.

But at least I counterweighted the extra load on the nose.
