I would sell you mine if I didn't need them for a while longer. As soon as I get a job I will probably get some Jesses and then I won't need my racks anymore. You could probably ask on either the GS or Airhead lists (or I could for you) for a used set, or try Recycle (sp?) or Parts Haus. A Beemer dealer would surely be able to get you a new set, but most used sets would be fine.

Mine are slightly bent and one joint was broken, but we brazed it back together - the crash tweaked it a bit. If you buy a used set and can examine them before buying, look at the joints for cracks and poor weld jobs - many people assume they are welded, but they are brazed, and they could easily screw up the joint by not properly preparing the joint before welding it (they should instead braze it).

FWIW,
LCB
