Talking Rack for KE100?

New to the forum, not new to motorcycles. Been riding for about 30 yrs. I picked up an '01 KE 100 with about 500 miles on it. It's my new commuter bike.
I know these never had a big after market following, but has anyone found a rear rack that would fit? Even with a little modification if necessary.

I had forgotten how much fun a small bike can be. Now, if I can just add about
20 hp:

I made a light duty rack for mine, cut a plastic bucket in half and bolted it to the plastic in the rear.

KE 100 rack

Ozz,,I made a rack from a discarded bicycle rack. Cut the square tubing to length and secured it to the bike with pipe clamps. Set a group of eye bolts at the top and bottom of the rack to secure whatever goodies it needs to go fishin, hunting or prospecting. The rack's not made to support more than 35 pounds yet it serves it's purpose. I can understand the addition of 20 more hp. In my case, the loss of 20 lb just might make this little puffer vain.

Thanks for the input guys. Sometimes it takes some ingenuity to solve a problem. Can't figure why the after market is dragging their feet. I'll bet they
could sell 5 or 6 of these things!!

I used a 70's ke100 rack on mine. Had to modify it a little, now it works great.
