I love my Dyna, but its lacking luggage-carrying capability, so I thought I should fabricate a luggage rack for an upcoming camping trip.

In this timelapse build video, you can see the steps I used to design and fabricate the support brackets, then use round steel bar to bend up and weld the rack itself.

Want more detail? There's an expanded 30 minute version of this build on my training website, where you can hear me explain the build steps and process in lots of detail. Check it out here:

I believe anyone can build their own custom motorcycle. I believe you should enjoy that sense of satisfaction that comes from creating something with your own hands. I believe you don’t have to pay someone else to do it.

So now I teach people how to build custom motorcycles by helping them build skills and confidence with my articles and training videos. I provide better technical information for custom motorcycle builders. And I shorten the learning curve getting you there.

Rather than having to spend thousands of dollars at a commercial shop, I can teach you to do as much or as little as you want.
