New rack for luggage

No manufacturer produces racks for luggage that I would like (from esthetic and also functional point of view) so I made my own. First of all I measured all the important distances (holes for bolts mainly etc), draw a model and after printing it out in 1:1 scale I checked it once more if everything fits. Everything seemed ok, so I ordered 4mm thick aluminum alloy plate and laser cutting machine in local steel workshop to do the job for me. When it came home I bought some bolts, made a transparent paint coating and installed it on motorcycle. All the expenses were about 25 USD.
