    IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!!!

    All pre-order deposits made through PayPal have been returned. Changes to PayPal account policies make it impossible to complete the ATO Rack transactions in two steps, pre-order and final payment.

    Though it’s considerably more work, we’ll do this the old fashioned way – by mail. I’ll activate a P.O. Box today and provide the mailing address. I accept postal money orders, bank and cashier’s checks. No personal checks. I’ll email a receipt for your pre-order payment. Sorry for any inconvenience.

    Change of plans. Judging by the strong interest so far, I've decided to purchase racks from the fabricator myself and offer them for sale without a pre-order. This eliminates the hassle of non-electronic down payments, especially difficult and costly for customers outside the U.S. I expect an updated quote from the fabricator any day, at which point I will place the order. Meeting schedule isn't the fabricator's strong suit. But they more than make up for it by delivering product of the highest quality. I'll post updates as they become available. Stay tuned...

    @spartanman That's great news for those of us who are going to have to save up for a while to afford one and those who need a replacement rack ASAP at times when theirs break. Thanks!

    I ordered, but the deposit was sent back to me. How can I know that you have my order?

    Hey big fellah, I am keen and just need the banking details when they are sorted. Have tried the email route but no response (maybe Junked?)

    Here is the best place to check rack status and ordering details. I'll post updates as they become available. Thanks.

    This is where you tell him that you want one and you are added to the list. In the past two production runs, he needs a minimum of 20 commitments to begin fabrication.

    Spartanman, I am seriously after an update. My current rack is stuffed while under warranty and the best Honda will do is a new one at cost ($480 AUD)!!! I just want to know if I should be looking elsewhere? Will you be making these racks or not and when? I can't ride the bike as the rack holds the bloody seat! If you aren't doing them can I contact the engineering company direct?

    Yep, I just thought it might be useful for him to have a rough estimate for how many to purchase.
