renntec rack on Thruxton?

Any Thruxton owners have the Renntec Sport Rack installed? I'd like to see a picture if possible - thanks.

My husband (MrNickwiz) has a Renntec carrier on his Thruxton. There may be some photos in his gallery, but I'll let him know you'd like to see some. It's very good, I've ordered one for my Bonneville.

I know sofiaspin has one on his thrux - he has posted positive comments on it. I don't think he has posted any pics though.

Before he did it, I'd have said it couldn't be done.

No he has not but will try and do so. Mr Nickwiz might beat me to it. The positive is that it fits - which some were unsure about. Even Rentec had no idea. Some purists think it does not work the rear cowl, but you can remove the cowl

Thanks - I would just use it for weekenders, so it's nice to know that it is quickly removed.

Here you go. Renntec rack fitted to my 07 Thruxton




It looks pretty good. can be removed quickly if you want though I leave mine on as I think it looks fine and adds practicality for an everyday biker like me.

That does look good. Renntec have always made good stuff. I want one.

Before he did it, I'd have said it couldn't be done.
