G'day guy's here is some pics of a rear bar I made for my 60 I designed it to have dual swingout carriers which will happen soon but not till I buy the swivel hubs and locking clamp thingies . but I'm real happy with it so far

this last pic is the bar I got to make the swingout carriers and it fit's pretty snug inside the bar . at least it should when it's finished .
this is by no means perfect or trade quality but I'm happy as punch and it only cost $107 for the steel and some welding wire
cheers Mark

ahhh finally a bar that doesnt stick out past the rear guards like sore thumb. I totally dig it! Love how it actually wraps around the side of the rear, like an 80 or 100 series unit.

Good job man, will look good with dual carriers aswell

Cheers

Great rear bar mate.

Do you mind if i use your design of your rear bar as i think it will work really well with a rear quarter chop and it looks farely strong

looks great for a home job.

are you going to leave the rear panel only stitch welded on?
