new seat and luggage rack

Hey guys take a look at the new seat i recently bought from chuck a. Its a saddleman and so comfortable. I also had a sissy bar pad made to match. I am leaving in a couple days for deals gap and needed a luggage rack but none were to be found. So i made my own check it out guys and let me know what u think. Thanks Chuck A for the seat

it holds up great. I have a kuryakyn gran tour bag that sits on it and holds it fully loaded great. I made it out of 8th inch thick aluminum then polished it.

Ditto.

Think the only thing I would have added would be some holes to hook bungee cords to.....

yea i kinda thought the same thing but not enough time. im leaving for deals gap and gotta work.. So after the trip yea they gonna b there. The best thing is you do have to remove the seat to take it off or put it on.

Man that bike is beautiful. Love the color and the seat looks at home on her. I like the signal visors too. How do mount and are they for the Vulcan bike or some thing else?

i made all the visors except for the headlight visor myself. They were not easily done because they are made of polished stainless. Yea i wanted some of those but they are an obsolete item and r very hard to come up with four of them. I used 3m double sided tape to mount them and they r stuck really good.

They look really kool! Hope you have a good time riding to the Gap. A friend and I are hoping to make a good ride to the Gap and do the Moonshiner 28 before long. I called the bone Doc and they are suppose to schedule me for knee replacement in the first of June. Got to get a lot of riding in before then.
