    Hey folks, I can find a million rear racks but I have a friction drive kit. I want a front rack that would allow me to mount a gas tank, or basket, or whatever. Has anyone see a front rack?

    Thanks

    Most front racks have no top platform at all and are only for rigging two touring panniers, like this one:

    Some of the touring front racks have top platforms, but these tend to be pretty expensive. One example:

    Within the last few years, I have seen a shorty front rack somewhere that was fairly cheap, but can't find it anywhere at the moment. It was not long enough to mount a regular rear cargo trunk on however, so I don't know how useful it would be.

    A more functional choice would be something from http://cetmaracks.com/index.html or http://www.passstow.com/index.html, but these cost a considerable sum of money.

    Bike Nashbar has a front rack and Performance Bike does also. Bike Nashbar has one for sale at $9.99 in their latest catalogue.
