Has anyone seen this post?
« on: September 05, 2011, 07:32:08 pm »
There was a post that a fellow Concourse 14 owner found a guy who took the plastic plate on the back of the bike and made a metal plate for about $125.00!  Half asleep one night I read the add but didn't save it.

I am going to Thailand on the 13th of September for 9 months and would like to have this plate custom made and possibly a rack that would attach to this plate so I could strap my camping gear on it.

Any ideas or suggestions will be appreciated.  Last year I had this sheet metal worker make a plate so I could attach my top box on the back of my CB1400.  He took one day and it fit perfectly for 500 bhat.............that's 15 dollars.

so I would like to take advantage of his talents and fees if possible.

Has anyone found a good luggage rack that works or is customizing the only way to go?  I'll have plenty of time on my hands so I am willing to work with any ideas that this forum may have.  thetravelever59/aka Robert

 There are two I can think of off the top of my head. The first person is Phil. Phil has been selling his rack for a few years now. It really is a nice piece. He has a web site. You can find it in the farkle directory.
 The second person is BDF (Brian). His is more for functionality that looks. But it allowed him to have the back rest for the Mrs. further to the rear. Making the back rest on the top case more comfortable for the rear passenger.
 There was a third a while back that made a nice one that had bungee holes and all. But I forget who that was. That was a few years ago.

This post is in the C14 accessories section. Have you looked at the menu (list of threads) in the C14 accesories section?  If you don't know what a farkle is, you'll get slack.  ;)  Just look in the C14 accessory section or other section to find some very useful information. Accessories in the accesories section. OEM parts in the normal C14 section. As well as other great info. Just take some time and look around for some helpful stuff.

OK, now I feel like I didn't help. So here's a couple of racks you can buy.

I suspect you're looking for Phils rack.
