rear luggage rack for cb750 k6
« on: September 16, 2017, 02:52:12 pm »
on the hunt for a luggage rack that fits a 76 750.  does anyone know what years will or won't fit a 76?  for example there is one on ebay now that says for a 79 750.  i imagine the rear was changed around 77/78+? lights/grab bar and so forth.

been scouring the interweb with little success/options.  any knowledge on this subject is greatly appreciated.       

i've attached a photo of a bike with the style luggage rack i like.  seems tough to dig these up.

A company called "Triple-A" made the best bike racks back then, IMHO.  Set a "Followed Search" on Ebay for your bike rack and something will eventually turn up.

But be cautious about bidding wars for these things because I've had to stop the insanity when my bidding was headed north of $225. Crazy. Better to wait for the next one.

thanks for the input rick.  there's a triple-A up on the bay now.  i guess it's a crap shoot on fitment.  it's time to learn how to weld.

 Be sure to put an add in the wanted section. Most of us have removed luggage racks from projects.

Luggage racks for the K's are reasonably common.  I have a 76F and finding a rack took months of tedious searching Ebay and Craigslist.  I finally found one that wasn't listed as such, but by then I knew what it had to look like, and pulled the trigger anyway.  Accessories is the biggest headache with these old bikes, imho.

I'm sure luggage rack will soon be found as new parts. I searched for a chain guard 4 years ago that was very tricky to find. Only some rusty ones in USA with horrible shipping cost. One year later I found new at Yamiya, chrome or black, later on cheaper versions but still OEM look at many sellers in Europe.

I have a similar rack as on the picture, but with too much rust after 20 years in a barn. Very useful though and has been around in Europe.
