Solo Seat Rack for 1500
« on: September 20, 2017, 19:32:24 PM »

So...through a special request, I designed a rear rack for solo seat 1500 drifters with the OEM saddlebag mounts.  This rack mounts the same way as the factory Fire & Steel chrome rack, but has 3 height settings and is pre-drilled for the backrest mount I also sell.  One is spoken for and one is available and is being put in the classifieds....it is very sturdy and you can mount a pad on it for a passenger seat in a pinch.  Since the chrome racks are no longer around, this could be a good substitute.....has a heavy black powder coat..will be priced at $85 plus shipping..

Looks great...nice job! It's a great alternative at a fair price if one desires a 1500 solo seat rack.

Great looking piece.  If I did not have the factory set-up I would buy one.   Its great your continuing to make Drifter parts this are no longer in production.  Your a Drifter die hard.......Keep it up....

OR Seedman,

Beautiful looking unit. I have "Buy now"ed it.I have acquired a topbox recently and was looking at designing something, but you seem to have covered my requirements already.
Have not used the VDR Classifieds before - there is no postage cost/option listed.  I am in Australia and postage is pretty brutal from US now.  Please determine a bubble wrapped minimum size package, at 2- 3 weeks delivery time - no rush - but not by paddle boat or concord  - and advise me of cost and how to add this to my payment.
If it is too much trouble for you to post O/S , then please advise and I will withdraw my offer. If the postage exceeds the cost of the rack, then I would like to be able to withdraw my offer.

 :)

OR Seedman,

What is the cost of your backrest?

Do you also make the OEM saddlebag mounts (I do have blueprints from Qld, Australia for these, but it would be handy if you do these).

If you have either of these can you provide cost including new combined postage  ?

Thanks,

The backrest mount is $45.00 US (includes mounting screws/lock nuts).  I will post it in the classifieds as a stand alone item.  you need to purchase your own back rest pad to mount on it (everyone wants something different and I don't want to carry inventory of all the different styles)  i put a Mustang pad on mine....

the mount has about 3" of forward/backward movement...you mount it under the top of the rack through the 4  pre-drilled holes .
