looking for luggage rack to fit Vetter trunk

Post by PhotoDoctor »



I'm looking for a luggage rack to fit the top of my Vetter Trunk - I see some racks on EBay but the ads are not "fits Vetter trunk" and also do not include the measurements. Just thought I'd check here to see if any members have knowledge on this. (I'll find something that will work in time but figured I'd just check in for advice)

Post the specs for where you want the drill holes to be and someone here might have a rack that fits..like me!! IE width between posts side to side 10" and front to back 8" for example.

There is a bit of play with size - I would like to avoid drilling through the pin-stripes.


Thanks for checking!

That will fit - one deeper than 5" would be great - but i think that will work if I can't find anything that is more square like this trunk. Is that one made to fit a stock Honda GL1100 trunk? (If so I should be able to find a photo on-line to see what it looks like.

Thanks
