Lightbulb Cheap Rack

What do you all think? I know it don't match as good as the custom made ones but it works. Can you guess what its off of?

It's the large truck rack for a Harley Davidson Ultra Classic Electra Glide. Paul Sayegh sells/sold a kit to mount on the LT trunk.

What do I win??

Talking

Boy I thought someone would have gotten it right away. It is from1988-2001 Honda Gold Wing 1500 and no kit required. Just drill 4 small holes and add two 1-5/8" spacers four screws and your done. Takes about 10 minutes to switch from case to rack with a cordless screw gun. I found the rack on E-Bay for $26.00 shipped. New ones can be had for $45.00 at JC Witney.

NOT bad at all...

Now, how about spray painting that ugly black plastic tray underneath with some paint that exactly matches the top of the side case grab rails for another $17.15 plus shipping....

It will then earn my GHETTO stamp of approval!!
