Fat Elvis

What’s that? You need to take 726 deep fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches across the river? Done and done. I have yet to put a weight restriction on my personal rack, which is the prototype for this design, since by the time you haul close to 200lbs there is no good way to get on or off the bike without spilling yourself and your cargo. Let’s say 150lbs load limit just to be reasonable. With oversize tubes and platform plate, this is an anchor on your front end, but very stylish and all but unbreakable. While Fat Elvis can be made compatible with many forks, I highly recommend a sturdy touring fork with double eyelets, lots of rake and cantilever posts if you are going to be carrying the loads this rack was designed for. The pictures are of my personal rack. Yours will not necessarily include the lovely rust and scratch patina.

More pictures.

Starts at $200 (~$300 as pictured)
