Rear Luggage Rack: XV1100 1995

Post by jsyzdek » Mon Apr 27, 2020 1:17 pm

Hi

I got a 1995 XV1100 and I'm looking for a rear luggage rack, the one that mounts to the passenger backrest mounting bolts. A lot of places that make them new are closed now due to the virus, and the used ones on e-bay are not the type I'm looking for (they are the ones that mount onto the fender, for single seaters).

If anyone is thinking about, or completed a cafe racer conversion and doesn't need his luggage rack, I'd be happy to take it for a reasonable price. Otherwise I'll have to go to Home Depot, and make something myself, that surely won't be as pretty...

I'm in Oakland, California. If you're not too far, it would make for a nice ride to come pick it up :-)

I thought I'd bring this topic back to the top of the list, in the event someone new to this forum happens to have the said luggage rack?

Companies are starting to open up now. Drop them an email or give them a call for availability.

The time that it would take you to fabricate one from stainless steel (to prevent rusting), they'll be open.

Not sure Home depot carries the types of Stainless Steel needed to fabricate one. Plus, you need specialized welding equipment. From what I've read there is a skill level required (over a beginner) when welding Stainless Steel.

From a guy that isn't that ambitious, I'd just wait. :lol: :oops:

Unless someone on the Forum has one.

Yeah, I know. I wasn't planning on making the exact copy, nor was I even thinking about welding, since I do not have a welder. I was just thinking about cutting out the two sides and then using metal rods threaded on both ends (or all-thread) to tie it all together. Even drilling in stainless is tough if you don't have a drill press, but luckily I have a good friend who has one :-)

I think I have what you're looking for - I just took one off a 1984 XV1000. Email me at ksaumure@gmail.com and I'll send you pics. I can ship but you'll have to pick up the tab for shipping.

Hi

Thank you for reaching out. I haven't logged in here for a while being beyond busy with work. FYI: I'm gonna get that 1984 rack in mail probably next week. Very excited for it.
Keep Calm and Ride On!
