It must just be the perspective. I have the same rack and would like to get something larger on it - like a Kuryakin Gran Tour.

This is a sissy bar and rack made by Fehling, and marketed under several different names. I ordered it from Germany, but got a good deal on it.

Quick question for those who have the rack. How much weight have you put onto it. I know it says like 10 lbs but my luggage I bought is 11 all together. Just wondering.

10lb? That can't be right. I could jump up down on the rack & it would be fine. Maybe you are thinking of the rear fender?

I cant answer for Hinckley Bikes but in '79 Triumph put a small rack on the lifting handle. There was a decal placed on the rack that stated no more than 15 lbs.(working from memory here). Carrying weight high and to the rear of the bike is not good for the bikes handling.


It was also not uncommon on Meriden OIF bikes (built between '71 and the end '83) to experience frame failure in the rear loop area when a sissy bar was added. Guys would tie heavy packs to the rack or their 'buddy' world lean against it during the ride. The rear mounting point of the sissy bar(or luggage rack) was the fender which in turn used the unsupported frame. Road vibration did the rest.
