Default Can Am Commander Rear Seat Cage.

Building a rear cage for a buddy. That's all I go to say about that...






Little ways to go yet, I'll get more pics up this weekend.

looks nice, tough to tell how much head clearance from the bars you will have...looks tight in the photos. Are you going to support it from the back at all? I would't rely on the stock cage to carry the impact load for the rear cage. And WTF is mounted to the hood of that thing?

I wouldn't trust it if it were my kids, even a simple roll over the right way could taco that thing. It does look fantastic though. Why did he mount the rad on the hood?

He said no. If I were him I would rethink that part of the design
