details on bike rack

Floyd, I need to do something like this. I have an old Thule roof rack for the rails. I am wondering whether this is welded or bolted or both and whether removing the battery is an issue at all. What stock did you use for uprights? thanks
Mark

Now that I sent the first reply I see some of the info I was asking about in a previous response. Still curious about battery access
and whether bolting or welding was used
thanks
Mark

I originally designed it to bolt to the frame, but I just don't like to drill the frame tubing any more than necessary, so I weled the finished rack in place.The way mine is configured, the propane tank must be removed in order to remove the battery. Normal service can be done in place. My battery has been upsized to a 29.
All done with a Hobart 110V MIG.

I was thinking about building something like Floyd has. I was looking at using .75 square tubing for the vertical supports. I found some 3" square U bolts that I was planning to attach the uprights to the frame so no drilling or welding to the frame. Found it all at ACE hardware. I'm still in the planning stages on mine.
