Hi,

I have a project Buddy 125 that I want to build a front rack for. If anyone could measure the diameter of the tubing for one of the stock racks and let me know I would appreciate it.

Thanks

I may be off the mark here, but if you are making it can't you make it with any size/type/design you like? Or, are you trying to "duplicate" a stock rack because you can, and it's cheaper/stronger?

I bought a non-running 125 as a hobby/project bike. I got the engine running and and having fun working on it. I could buy a front rack but would rather make a project of it. The Prima rack looks good on the scooter in pictures so I want to make something in proportion to it. It might not work out or it might not look good or whatever but I just want to give it a go.

Looks like the OD on the tubing on our front rack is 3/4". It also looks like it has been bent into fairly graceful curves and chromed after it was welded.
