Anyone have any ideas of where I can purchase a luggage rack for a 08 classic LT for a good price or anyone selling one??? I looked on ebay. The OEM one is over 200 bucks, ouch. Any ideas of a aftermarket one that will fit. Want to do some traveling and would like a trunk bag but want rear seat free for the wife if she feels like going.

I take it you have a luggage rack. If so, would you mind posting a pic so I could take a peek and see how it looks. Thanks, Mac.

have one yes, on the bike no.
I'm not sure if i really want one on there. i'll throw it on and snap a few for you tomorrow.
Thank you, I dont want you to go through the trouble of putting it on if you normally dont have it on. I can find a pic somewhere online but I do appriciate the offer unless you did it already. I dont know if I would want to keep it on all the time also but would definetly be convienent for long trips.

This is the one I have on mine.
Not sure if it is Kawasaki, but; still 200 bucks. (At least I didn't get it from a Kaw Dealer)

However; it matches the bike perfectly. The square tubing matches the sissy bar on the LT like it was factory.

Good Luck!
This rack looks real nice, its a shame its over two hundred bucks. I guess ill have to give in eventually. Im in the wrong buisness, I should be selling bike accessories.:D

hey Mac,
here is a couple of pics of a rack i threw together for around $30.00 with material purchase from a local home depot. it is all aluminum with stainless hardwared.
not as nice or pretty as the spendy ones. but works very well and removes easily. View attachment 9461

hello, well i just got this rack off the Bay and it fits good looks pretty good also. the only con to me is it sits about 1" - 11/2" to high. works great for what im doing with it.

I bought this same rack last year, and after 3 rides weekend rides, the rack started to bend under the weight of my luggage. Its cheap for a reason. I'm Looking to get something a bit more sturdy this year.
