   The rack that you can get for the Rad Rover is pretty beefy aluminum, although I'm sure you could build one up.
   With bags and all, I hauled a 112 lb load on it...Duffle.. auto parts/weed wacker etc....Too top heavy and
   750w  underpowered that day, but  I am using it as an island hauler, and again, that rack holds well

   I just had to add my time into the costs,  because although I would have enjoyed the build, at this point with 3 teens it would have just been another project, and I think that if I ever wanted to up the game that the Rover platform would be a good base
Too many for the rack
Some in the shack
Some under decks
Some have straps

Yeah Pono I think its a cyclone. Bought from Luna.
I am going to be in Mt Hood area 3rd week this month. I can deliver or
mail. If cards line up, it would be nice to get wet.

I plug in batteries separately. My connector is xt-90. Had to make
a charging harness for each. Simple plug and play. Hakko iron
works so well.

I will post a picture of bike later.

Sea ya
