Luggage rack

Hello, I have a 2015 C50T...I was given an awesome rear trunk, so I'm looking for a luggage rack. Let me know if there are any out there...thanks.

Do you have a rear pillion on the bike already? If not, then I would suggest $pending the dollar$ and getting a Wompus rack for the bike. It is far and away a better option than trying to sandwich the trunk onto an OEM or aftermarket rack on the bike. The side pieces are chromed aluminum and have a maximum weight capacity of 11 lbs. Most trunks weigh more than that empty.

I met Wompus 10 years ago in WV. He's a cranky guy but that probably helps in the making of a strong product.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.

The Wompas rack is simple and strong enough for a trunk. If you ride with a passenger and the trunk is a good size you might get Wompas to stretch it so the trunk sits back farther. I had a Harley leather Tourpack which looked great with the OEM leather saddle bags. Momma didn't have enough room to be comfortable so I made my own rack.

The Custom World chrome rear rack will only fit Custom World chrome back rests. It will not fit on any other backrest. (This is the principle problem with aftermarket parts.)

Nope, not the case with this model. It bolts to the rear seat bolt and the fender. I have pictures here somewhere. Just gotta find them and I'll post.
