Madison,
Thanks for the quick reply. A quick internet search of Hepco Becker racks revealed that the rack is probably not an HB rack. However, I happened upon another site and discovered that Reynolds may have made two versions of racks for the K bikes (one made out of flat bar and another made out of round tubing). If correct, it would appear that the rack in the photo is one of the round tube Reynolds racks with a backrest. Any thoughts?

I appreciate your help.

Cheers.

You are likely correct. HB made some very nice accessories for the K. You can find some accessories for sale on the BMWmarketplace website.

From the backrest cushion I've always assumed that that was an early RR for Ks. Looks like a nice solid setup. The later RRs (240 for 2V Ks, 241 for 4V Ks) can move around a bit from side to side.

If you want a backrest what's wrong with the top case?

Call me crazy, but I like the look / simplicity of the Reynolds luggage rack and back rest. It just looks "right" to my eye. But, you are correct...The topcase option is the better option since it allows for covered storage in addition to the back rest.

Thanks to everyone who has responded to my question...I really appreciate the help.

It was supposed to be in another thread.
Something about a rear tire mounted on the front and which direction the tread should be rotating.
At least I know where to find the picture now.
Pics of K75C coming soon.

Awesome thread! I have lurked it for such a long time. I'll get around to posting a pic of my K, super boring. I'll add photos of my new "c" fairing i'm installing later this week! Super excited for that.
