IIRC, I believe that finding a suitable rack/backrest has been a problem for the Adventurer models because they have a different rear subframe to the other models.

Does your backrest bolt to the subframe or is it part of the seat like some Corbin seats? If the former, then perhaps the maufacturer offers a model complete with rack. Is there a makers name?

Does your sissy bar already have the mounting points? I once saw a T-bird backrest and rack on ebay that had OEM part numbers listed seperately for the sissy bar and rack? I'll try to track down a part #.


The one for the solo seat is a rare one. Saw one turn up on ebay once. The top of it is curved to match the fender, pretty neat looking. I assumed it was a factory part. Have you tried the $tealer$hips?

The luggage rack bolts on to the frame of the sissy bar uprights, it's held in place with 4 bolts for the Adventurer.
I did try a few dealers with no luck. In the paperwork I received with the sissy bar it only shows a picture of the luggage rack, no part number. If you guy's find the part number or any information please let me know. I would like to get one without modifying the sissy bar so it would stay in its original condition.

Thanks for all your help.

It's not the right one, as a matter of fact I didn't even see the sissy bar for the adventurer. If any knows please let me know. Thanks again for the help.

According to my 2001 Triumph Parts & Accessories catalogs (yes, I'm a packrat and have Triumph literature back to '95), Triumph didn't offer a luggage rack for the '99up Adventurers.

That's going to be a difficult find, I'm afraid! You'll most likely have to modify a 3rd party rack from someone like Dennis Kird (www.denniskirk.com) or J C Whitney.

Good luck!

Mike....

Reading through, it's not clear but I'm assuming that the back rest is not OEM but is aftermarket, that you don't know the make, but that you do know that there is a bolt-on rack for it (based on a diagram you have).

Correct? If I'm not, then we need some more info in order to help you out.

In any event, can you take a pic of the backrest and post it here? Then folks can see if they recognise the make? You can do that by storing the pic on one of those picture hosting websites (or if you have an album on this site already - put it there). Then create a link to it in this thread by adding a post, clicking on the URL button below, pasting the link in the pop-up and adding some text to prompt us to "click here"

If this is the single seat, then you ought to be able to do some searching in the used/discontinued bins at shops and find something to mount to the fender struts pretty easy (HD's over the years had thse smounted here -- especially older FLH's). That would be preferable to using the back rest, and stronger.

If you look here, http://mojoincolorado.spaces.live.com/, you will get an idea of what I did. A bit heavy as I used solid versus tubular steel, and the fender itself doesn't have the lateral strength I would like, but has worked excellent so far. (I hate to say it, but you must use the IE browser to see it as microsoft is the page provider.)

The luggage rack for the Adventurer is universal, I have a 96 backrest and rack on my 2001. The only place you are going to find a set is on ebay. Got the backrest from one individual, and the rack from another (cycletheropy.com) they dismantle bikes. It is a 4 bolt attachment to the backrest uprights, also the mounting bolts for the backrest can be made up from a local hardware store, more on this if you need. I will try to post a picture here, if it does not appear look at my photo album (ecrabbit96). When you do find one be prepared for a bit war, I paid about 200 for the rest and spent 250 more having it re-chromed. Gooood luck!

I like my solution. Vintage Japanese after market slightly modified and even more unique.
I've got some pics of Dave's bike with that rack right here:

Pic 3

Dave's rack has a lot more capacity than the Triumph racks, which are really quite small. My Tbird beside his has the stock rack, and the T-bag on the back nearly overwhelms it.

Another option would be to talk with Sprint Manufacturing in England, which specializes in aftermarket Triumph accessories. They have some nice racks, and some of them accept hard luggage.

I found some more information. The part number is
A9730511 and it comes in a kit from triumph. I was told that it will mount right on my OEM sissy bar. And believe it or not I was able to order it from a dealer who can get things done.
Thanks for all your help in this.
