You might think about welding a 3"X4" or so piece of flat plate to the back side of the new ( bolted on) cross members...standing on it's edge. That way it will extend up to the bottom of the new rack, where you could weld a threaded stud on the crossmember of the rack itself and then just slide the new rack into the holes on the plate, bolt it up and you're done. I guess you could even use large wing nuts if you preferred.
Or better yet, weld the plates on the new rack ( basket )itself and the studs on the new bolted on crossmembers. That way the plates wont interfere with anything when the basket isnt attached....duh..
Either way, I like the basket you built !
