    I have one that will be for sale shortly....an original one in very good condition.

    If I get any PM's on it.....I'll give them priority when I do put it up.

    .



    I have that exact rack on mine, works perfect and it'll easily handle 40 pounds.

    I sold my BBQ rack, too wide and too ugly.

    How wide of a duffle have you strapped on it? Due to the lack of support on the sides I would be seriously concerned about burning the bag on the exhaust. I have seen more than one bike burned to the ground because of that.

    I use a roll top duffel that is plenty stiff when loaded so that wasn't been a problem for me, but, I agree that should be considered in your choice.

    I used to use a thin piece of wall panel board inside the base of my old duffel to stiffen it.

    That works better than the cardboard most bags come with.

    I'm not sure which ones you're refering to, but if it's this one:

    The guy said "I'm old. Screw it." and retired. I asked him.

    someone needs to pay him for his design & continue it.
    the klr crowd is equally bummed.
    i'm surprise one of the chinese outsorcing campanies did not copy it already.
    great design for holding travel duffel.

    Heyyyy. I have one just like that on my bike.
    I didn't know it was a collector's item.
    What were these things going for at the time?

    I ordered mine before I even bought my new DR650 back in
    '08,as I know that good things don't last forever.

    Some of the things I have been able to carry on that rack
    have been well beyond the scope of what is considered
    normally acceptable motorcycle cargo.

    It would be well worth copying for the good of DR650dom.

    It's a great rack like everyone sez - holds lots of gear and if you fall (like me) it protects the signals and side panels.
