Anyone know what the rear fender rack is made of? Is it cast steel or cast iron? I'm getting mixed signals based on my research and tests but am leaning towards cast iron. I have a bunch of cracks in mine.

Also, if anyone can post some pictures of the rear tab, that would be useful. The rack I have is all mangled up and I think someone in the past welded it on pointing down instead of up.

Thanks

rear rack

Hi

It's over 30 years since I had mine (1934 model) in bare steel but I would say it is pressed steel and not cast. I have attached some photo's and hope they help, but if not let me know what detail you need and I can try and give it. The extra 2 holes towards the front are for my Pegusa pillion seat and may not be original.

The rack on my R12, which is very similar, if not the same, is pressed steel.
