Luggage rack

I would like to find a luggage rack for my 03 vn 750. Nothing fancy just a rack to eventually put a trunk on. I have looked online but can't find anything simple.

Many people on this forum can comment much more than I can but...

Kawasaki made a luggage rack for the Vulcan 750 - You can sometimes find them:

- on this site for sale
- on ebay
- on craigslist (that's where I found an ok deal for mine).

Some have made their own (search this forum).

I believe there were some aftermarket luggage racks made by other companies for this bike but they will be hard to find or quite expensive.



Old Bike: 2006 VN750 - Sold

Current Bike: 2007 Yamaha V-Star 1300 Tourer

I make a luggage rack for the bike, but you lose your toolbox. If you're planning on putting a trunk on that shouldn't be an issue for you. PM me if you want more details.

Go with a home made/after market one...then cover it with a trunk.

M_Angell's luggage racks are pretty tough too. I am sure they would hold a trunk with no worries.

Hey, if you can figure out how to strap a seat on my rack you could carry another person lol. I load test all of my racks by putting all of my weight on them....that's roughly 250lbs.
