Well Grampa, you just haven't been looking in the right places. How about these?
I came out with these a few weeks ago.






Standard in black or chrome, or any other custom finish of your choosing as an option. The best quality CNC'd billet rack you have ever laid eyes on.

$359 list in black, chrome $399 list. Members here get 10% off, so pm or e-mail me for the code if interested. In stock and ready to ship.

Will; I'm seeing a list price of $499 for the chrome XC and XR luggage racks. Was this a misprint?

They are nice BTW. I'd rather spend the money on yours than Vic's (bland) rack.

No misprint Bob, but with the Vision-Riders Member discount the price is $450. Mine may be the same list price, but you get 10X the quality, fit, and finish. Our racks are painstakingly and flawlessly mirror finished piecees with the best true triple show chrome you'll ever see (very costly) compared to the poorly polished, wavy, cheaply chromed Kuryakyn Chinese made OEM racks. Plus mine are built right here in the USA, which we all know costs a bit more.
I guess the best way to put it is our racks are of show quality, not your average utilitarian finish. Hopefully someone with one of our racks will chime in and give you their feelings on the level of goods you'll receive from me.

Oh ok. I'm just seeing the $499 price on this page for the XR and XC's chrome racks.

Btw; I'm looking into trading in my HD and my new JP for a XC. Just fell in lust with the one I rode the other day during demo days.

I wish I could just keep buying more bikes without having to let go of another (or two in this case). In a perfect world i guess ...

Just wanted to add that it's worth it buy good quality. They tend to last forever and can be sold later if needed or wanted. That goes for just about anything.

Roger that for sure Bob, an astute observation not realized by some. Price isn't the deciding factor, proper value for what you're money gets you should be.

Hey,

I bought a custom made one from a guy from TheVog.net forum. Fits the OEM Lock & Ride passenger backrest perfectly. He ships you the whole mounting kit. Very happy with it. Went on in about two minutes. And I just leave it attached to the backrest, pop off the backrest when I don't need it.

Much cheaper than the price you're seeing above, too (but still not cheap). I won't quote it because I believe Steve might be charging a bit more now--demand has creeped up for him over at The Vog. Several members have bought one.

Here's his profile over there:

And some images of his work on my Cross Roads:

I saw one of those last week and you can't compare the two other than they both racks for the same bikes.
I won’t and am not knocking it as it seemed to do the job, it’s utilitarian and ours are made for the best looks on top of its functionality. Sure, it's a viable alternative for those who can't or won't go for the extra bucks for what many consider to be ‘just a luggage rack’, a part of function only, and who more than anything just want a functional platform for their gear. My market is to those who want it a centerpiece when it’s not busy doing its ‘day job’.
The differences, and hence the costs of ours over this one you're mentioning are quite vast:
* 1/4" thick 6061-T6 aviation construction grade billet aluminum vs. 1/8" mild steel.
* AL is 1/3 the weight in to steel, 2X as thick which looks better plus morerigid and is still 50% lighter, yet is also 50% stronger in strength.
*Billet costs 4X as much as mild steel.
*Completely CAD designed and CNC CAM milled vs. just cut from flat stock with a plasma cutter or similar 2D cutting method.
*A CNC flycut face for perfect flatness and with fully CNC radius routed edges in and out vs. sharp edges with no radiusing or other work done after cut out.
*Full TIG welding of the 1/4" support arms creating a rock solid, one piece forever unit that can’t loosen vs. 4 screws holding it all together. Welds are forever and cannot move, where screws can loosen and cause rattles.
*Chromed steel, sooner, or later, will develop rust, usually starting where they the bolts go through or where they ‘rack’ them for chroming. Aluminum will never rust, period.
*Strategically placed triangular holes to allow for strap hooks, but won’t let them slide once placed, this rack doesn't.
*Ours has all SS mounting hardware included, although, but I wouldn’t call it a 'kit' as it simply consists of (4) 6MM-1.0 bolts, (8) 6MM flat washers and (4) Nylock nuts. I guess it’s a kit when it also consists of the extra hardware to put it all together.
Now, again, in no way am I knocking, as for the money it’s an alternative and I’m sure a fair value for its price like ours are. When I see a post comparing lower priced goods to mine without telling difference in the price itself, let alone the differences in the products, I’m compelled to point them out to keep all things in perspective for those reading.
Simply put, my racks are over built and finished well beyond what most would consider acceptable for such an item. Using only the best materials, hi-tech machining, and top shelf show chrome costs more, but it sure does yield a more refined product. I leave the price point parts to others, and cater to those who want show quality parts and tThere’s plenty of room in this market for products from both ends of the spectrum.

To each his own, CycleOps. But to be fair, please note that SL_Narz's rack is the real deal, not your average DIY-garage job. Having seen and touched this one, the OEM and the Kewlmetal, I can tell you that the gauge of metal and the chroming are top-notch.
