Rear rack options.

I'm looking for something like this that I had on my enfield, but in black. Anyone know where I can get something like this, maybe in black? I like how the mount follows the curve of the fender and its pretty slim overall and has small diameter bars.


I've seen the bike brothers rack and its not bad, but I think its a bit too chunky.

I bought this one from a fellow Bobber owner on this forum. It is from overseas, so conversion and postage to the USA might add up. I like the thinner tube and the outside mounting brackets, which make for keeping straps and bungees from sliding around.
Here’s a link.

I have the Ural version but if you like the Dennis Kirk version why not have it powder coated.

Thats a great idea. Wonder how much it would cost to get it stripped and coated?!

There are probably several people who do pc in your area. Show them a picture and dimensions and you should be able to get a quote.

So I looked into it. I think its going to be like $100-150. Thats not worth it to me. New idea...

Either use the chrome one as is above, or grab this one

..and make some custom brass mounts for it like the ones below (I'm "brassing up" some parts on my bike, so it will make sense). I'd just have to pop some through holes through the rack.

Sub. don't overlook the raised "bump" in the fender.

Sadly we can't see where you are from.

I have one for sale in the UK.

This edit time limit is a bit dull!
