Swapping fender rack for rear tractor seat

Post by HassoBoxhead » Wed Jul 03, 2019 5:34 pm

As I sit here waiting for my Ural to finish getting fixed (one more week) I’ve been “virtually working on” my rig. Right now I have a front tractor seat with a standard rack on the rear fender. If I were to swap the rack for a rear tractor seat, would that entail any drilling of new holes or are they made using the same as the rack?

Was same hole pattern on my 2013 GU.
I moved the fender rack to the sidecar fender. Now that required holes.
