Does anyone have the "3 channel luggage rack" for K-model and Sportster? I would like to have some dimensions in order to make a replica. As far as I know there is no aftermarket copy available, please correct me if I am wrong. If you have an original one in good shape for sale, I might also be interested. Thanks, Hans.

I did not like the flat design of the original luggage rack, but wanted to keep somewhat original when adding a luggage rack to my '56 KHK. I found a Harley rack for a Softail that looked close, but had extra tubing that should hold my gear better. If I can figure how to post photos, I'll show the progression of the development of the hybrid rack that is now on my bike: ... g.jpg.html ... da2urb.jpg
I'll put more photos in a separate post.
