    I'm looking for a large, sturdy and level luggage rack for my 1986 R80. I'd like something large enough to be able strap extra gear onto. I was looking at the BMW system, but it seems to stay slanted (for the 22L topcase and all). So, I need something completely horizontal and level.

    Recommendations anyone? I'd prefer something that fits without much modification.

    Look for a "Reynolds" rear rack. Super sturdy, good size and very flat. They come up for sale from time to time although less often for the monos. You may need to buy the saddlebags rack also to mount the rear rack, though I am not sure. Check the usual sites from time to time besides adv: ebay and IBMWR' Good luck.

    I'm slightly familiar with the Reynolds, but I'd rather not have to buy new saddlebag racks. I also didn't think Reynolds made anything for post 84 style airheads.

    Solo Lobo,

    Thanks. Just what I'm looking for. If I can't find a similar solution for cheaper, I think that's what I'll be purchasing.

    Bah. They're no longer able to ship to the USA.

    You can buy the Hepco Becker rack at Bob's BMW or Eurotech (the last I knew)

    Reynold's luggage racks for the 85-95 monolevers don't require changing the saddlebag mounts.
