Wow. I've never seen a McCauley 9 hole rack with "rat trap?" springs. How very cool.
Yeah, I was stoked to get it. It's in really nice condition as well, matches the patina of my bike and has the original reflector. @fordmike65 mentioned it was an accessory rack made by McCauley although not shown in the Colson catalogue (they show a standard McCauley rack). Since my Colson is badged as a Delmar from Simmons Hardware Co. I think its entirely possible they could have offered it this way. Either way I love it.
