as you guys know that I have a t/cat.
I'm going to make my own rack with a back rest for my wife!
as it happened I make and sell rails and racks for classic bike as well as some newer bikes.
price for this $205.26 that's equivalent to £130! Shocked

That looks like a professional job. Very impressive! clappy
I think you might be in demand if anyone needs something a bit different.

I'd be very interested to see what you could conjur up for a rack for my cat to mount hard side panniers on the rear. I already have a back box with monokey plate, fitted to a givi rack.

I contacted nonfango about hard pannier fittings but they quoted me over £300 just for the rack.

Shocked

I just picked up a Nonfango rack, plate and topbox off of eBay for £80! Mind you, I prefer the way the Givi rack fits the bike, but mine works OK (just had to shim the seat lock as it fouled the rack). I doubt I'll need panniers, but I was hoping eBay might come good on those too if I did.

Could you take some pics of the nonfango stuff and how it's fitted for me?

I can, and I also found a fitting document online which I'll see if I can dig out. Might take me a few days to get pics.

OK, here are the fitting documents which show you how it all fits, including the rack, top plate and pannier racks. Let me tell you that in reality it's a tight fit getting the bracket under the rear grab handle and getting the bolt back in, but it does go. The main issues I had are:

- LHS rail fouled the seat lock/helmet holder such that I couldn't operate it properly. I removed the seat lock (2 security internal Torx bolts) and used a couple of small washers to shim it away from the rail - job done!

- the top plate rubs on the little central plastic panel at the back of the seat when loaded with a heavy topbox. For now I've put some sticky-backed foam rubber on there, but I really need to adjust the angle of the plate mounted to the rack

Other than that it is rock solid and the 848 box takes more stuff than I had thought it would.

Pictures on the bike may take a while, but hopefully this helps for now.
