Re: Fort Worth Rack

I've posted this many times. but i would highly recommend you watch this video: and here's a picture how mine turned out.. Total cost to me was 78 bucks.. It's a Harley rack fitted to the LT.. very easy to do.. and way way cheaper than a ft worth.

Re: Fort Worth Rack

It really does look good.. I go 2 or three months with the trunk and then switch to trunkless. To me there is no difference in handling, so it's just a Mood of the day type thing.

Does it make your LT go "potato, potato, potato?"

Re: Fort Worth Rack

GaryEm,

I have one of these racks in my garage with all of the mounting hardware and instructions. I have a 1999 K1200 LT. Not sure if it will fit your bike. I will let it go cheap.

How much for the FT Worth Rack? If you are in Arlington I could arrange a local pick up if desired. I am there at least once per week.

I liked the video and the rack so I gave it a go. I used an attachment I made for a hydraulic press to put an angle on the rack and it fits with no spacers and clears the stock antenna mount with about 2mm clearence.

Re: Fort Worth Rack

Good job. Looks great.
I actually took my antenna off so didn't need to bend my rack. I find my reception is fine with the hidden antenna. If not, i just use my iPhone plugged into the aux input.. Much prefer the clean look without the antenna

Re: Fort Worth Rack

dblb88... I just used the link that was given from the video. I'll see if i can find it.
I found one, but it's black. Can't find the silver looking one anymore. Perhaps you'll have better luck.
