We love DIY projects that make bikepacking more accessible to a broader range of riders with varying budgets, and we always look forward to bike restoration videos from Gary’s Projects on YouTube. So, naturally, we were excited to see a new DIY video pop up from Gary yesterday that offers the best of both worlds.

In his latest video tutorial, he walks through the steps for making your own rando-style front rack with a drill and some simple materials that are available from any hardware store. The rack he makes in the video ended up costing him a little under $25 AUD in materials, which is just ~$16.50 USD! A word of warning that building it appears to be a fairly involved process, but the end result looks solid. Check out the video below, and if you end up making one, be sure to shares photos with us in the conversation below.
