99 racks

Rack #99

Rack #99 is a 10x8 rack for a Rivendell Joe Appaloosa (mocked up on a Rosco Bubbe mixte because it uses an Appaloosa fork and I had access to one so I could use it as a rackmaker’s form.)

Being able to do a 4-point mount makes the rack amazingly rigid, even though it’s 516ths tubing. Normally I’d do a pair of braces running back from the midpoints of the fork leg stays to the rack deck, but I’m not sure if it’s even necessary in this case?
