W/NG Rack

Postby LuisPaz » Mon Apr 30, 2018 9:34 pm

Hi fellows
I live so far in Argentina and the shipping cost are high to buy a Repro Pannier Rack
I make and easy drawing and i need measurements to make my own rack.
They should only measure the length of each red line named with a letter. If possible, the angle shown in the drawing.
I will greatly appreciate the measures that you can send me.
Also i need the thickness of the bar.
Thanks in advance!

A = 430mm measured along top between rear of rack and theoretical intersection point

B = 300mm measured along top between theoretical intersection point and end of mounting lug

C = 475mm measured along underside between welded joint and end of mounting lug

D = 130mm along tube between welded joint and end of mounting lug

(distance between mounting lugs = 150mm)

E = 130mm between centres

F = 130mm between centres

G = 160mm between centre of mounting lug and centreline of tube

(Pannier mounting lugs 140mm between centres)

Tube diameter = 12.7mm

Angle = 52 degrees (ie. sloping tube is 38 degrees from horizontal)

According to the parts book number, that rack only dates back to 1940. Nev

That's the rack that comes with the pannier frames, fitted from '42? The earlier rack is more like a civilian one.

The rack Luis shows is missing from my original January 1942 parts book.

My parts list is May 1941. Complete carrier Number 5630-40. This is closed at the front and has not got the extra mount points for the pannier frames. The note in the parts book says do not use E9/896 which it presume is a civilian one. 5630-40 was only used for a bit more than a year, it appears.. Nev

Thanks to the measures shared here in the forum, I started building the rear carrier. My rear fender has missing parts, such as the hinge, which I will have to rebuild. I'm newby to iron folding and welding, so I have mistakes to correct even ...
