The brackets are adjustable both left and right for the center to center wheel distances and also up or down to adjust somewhat for varying length trikes. Rear fender on the single wheel will not contact the lower channel.
All bolts and rack components are heavy duty, steel frame is powder coated, and stainless bots with nylock nuts are used in all locations.
