Question Can you identify this rack?!

Finally found the picture I ran across randomly last week that shows a rear luggage rack, WITHOUT sissy bar. This picture is on the Tsukayu website when you click the page for all their Strongbags.

I would be willing to bet money this is a Vulcan 900 Classic rear end, and that's why I want to know what this luggage/rear rack is. Hoping I can find the same kind of setup.

Too bad I can't offer a prize to whoever can figure it out

aren't those passenger floorboards? Didn't realize the VN 900 came with them.

Mark, Yes those are passenger floor boards and no, VN900s don't come with them. You have to add them.

The rack looks like half the LT back rest with a modified top case carrier,i would suggest the bag brackets are also stock LT bag brackets.

The other rack ..... MMMM looks familiar, i just cant place either of them

As i flipped into 5th, i couldnt remember a damn thing she said

Dang it. I pulled up this post based on the heading thinking I'd have to take a guess of either Jessica Alba's or Megan fox's cleavage.

nice rack

I suddenly forgot all about missing riding when I saw that one! Up in michigan we are having withdrawls with 10 degrees and snow, on the verge of depression and dreaming about spring. Made me forget all about it, she is def. bigger than Fox or Alba.

Mayorblurps ... if I recall from one of your previous posts, you are a female motorcyclist? So, I for one was actually thinking that you were talking about a motorcycle...

Not that I completely minded where things went on this...

But to your question - the first thing I noticed was the non-US license plate. So, based on my own experience, I was thinking that the whole set up was a European product (the gray 'platform' is definitely a mounting plate for a hard case of some sort -- perhaps Givi, or CooCase (sp?) or some similar product). Givi and others make 'universal' plates that can mount to any flat luggage rack sturdy enough to support the weight of the case. As for the brackets themselves, I'll defer to whiting on that, but I can tell you that many of the companies (e.g. Cobra, or National Cycle) sell their racks in three pieces, so that you can buy just the side plates and luggage rack without the passenger backrest and then it'd be up to you to get the unviersal mounting plate and case from another company. I'd thought about doing this, but ran out of money after purchase of my side cases :-)

Yes guys, I am a female rider. You can imagine the *sigh* that left my mouth when I saw the rack picture. I can't be mad though, boys will be boys!

Now to find some way to make sure people know I'm a gal...avatar pic or something.
