Reread... I think I'm going to. I have to get solid round bar. Then I'm going to see if I can attach it without the stock trunk bracket... For those with a solo seat

This reminds me, I was going to upload a drawing with the dimensions of the rack I made.

I made the model, but I wanted to double check the dimensions before I uploaded the drawing.

Not sure if you could do one something like this. I put this on my sportster. It's very strong. Surprised me. Since it always has a bag on it, who cares what it looks like. Maybe you can figure out a way to do something similar.
