airhead GS/PD racks

I am probably bringing up an old question sorry new to this site. Were can I find info on racks to replace the rear seat, with a rack either link, or vendor or suggestion. Bike is 95 BMW 1000 GS/PD Classic. First venture into dirt or adventure since the 70's. And best place to get gas line.

You can still buy the racks from BMW, repops from Siebenrock, or from one the members here named hardware grrrl. Just be forewarned that the GSPD solo seat is not very comfortable. As for fuel line, I just use 1/4" line from the local autoparts store. It's a little snugger than the metric stuff, but works fine.

I have a single rack and single seat I would be willing to part with.
