UK Bike Photos & Hepco Becker Racks

Some photos of H&B racks for my VN750 (UK bike), thought I'd upload some photos as couldn't find any when researching their purchase. Very sturdy, well made and fit well - expensive though. You can see you have to move the indicators (blinkers?) back and extension wires are provided for this purpose.

I find this interesting....It's a different take on how it is mounted. It appears to be an all-in-one unit: as a luggage rack, relocation kit for the rear blinkers, and a saddle bag support all in one.

I am just curious if it is easily removeable to return it back to the stock look. I see your toolbox is removed...would the toolbox still open with that bar running just behind it?

Looks like a Protac backrest to me.

Its essentially in three parts and bolts together; left and right hand pannier frames and the luggage rack. There is also a brace above the number plate (I had to cut the plate to make it fit - UK plates are generally larger than other countries).

A number of stock bolts need to be replaced (provided) to suit the frames. Yes very easy to return back to stock. A lot easier than assembling it as the instruction were in German (and google translate didn't help much).

I don't have a tool box fitted as I think the pillion sissybar prevents it (previous owner didn't have it to pass on in any case) but would welcome advice if anyone thinks different.

The upstand bar on the luggage rack I am actually going to cut off and as it prevents a sissy bar bag I have sitting on the rack.

I chose the frames because I thought my BMW R80G/S panniers would fit (they didn't). Still I wanted something pretty robust as plan is to bit some aluminium hard panniers at some stage.
