Default Trunk Luggage Rack

Looking for a Luggage rack for my XCT trunk. Yes I know Ma Vic makes one but it doesn't look right.
I found one from Metal Sport for a HD but it is square and the standoffs are too short for the Vic Trunk.

I like the style of the Metalsport rack with a few changes narrow the rear portion to follow the lines of the XCT trunk and provide for a 1 to 1.5 inch standoff.

Narrowing the back would make the lines fanout following the "V" theme of the design.

Looking for a company to build one or develop a line I think it would be a killer design.

Ideas?

Yep, I imagine you know this, but just in case you don't, CycleOps ( http://cycleopsusa.com/store/index.html , about a third of the way down the page) makes trunk racks in a couple of styles. I got one about a year ago; see attached pics from my gallery (where I have a couple more pics). The nice thing about these racks is that they use the stock mounting points and have the supports angled accordingly.

There's a long two-year-old thread on XCT trunk racks here -- https://www.victoryforums.com/showthread.php?t=10104 -- you'll want to read, if you haven't already.

Bill,
Thanks for the link.

I am looking for something Like
Rack.jpg

Only slightly modified, to follow the trunk lines better. Figure the width at the Front is fine at 21 inches, but narrow the width at the back to 19 and the lines will flow with the trim line on the trunk.

And of course chrome.

You'll note in that other thread that I liked that one (but not in chrome) enough to phone, to get the measurements. In the end, I decided it was easier -- no need to deal with mounting issues -- to get one made for Vics. But you have more fabrication and modification skills and experience than me, so go for it, good luck, etc.

Cheers,

Bill,
I was thinking of taking .25 out of the center
.375 out of the next and .5 out of the last to form the Vee. and retaining the flip in the rear.

Working on the CAD drawing and will be looking for a shop to build and chrome.

What about trying Witcdoctors? If this is something they thought they could market they might produce them.

Talked to Jon,
he is busy trying to keep up, and doesn't have time for new work right now...

I will keep plugging. I have a Machine shop down the street from me, they are expensive and chroming down here take a long time to get done. May be I will build one and send it to Jon for chrome work along with the .dxf files maybe I can add it to the line.

Cheers

So a little update on my quest for a luggage rack that look like it is designed for the XCT trunk.

Spoke to Jon and WD they are doing so much business they can't get to it. Good for you Jon!

Next gave a shout at Victory Only and Jason is looking into it. Last I spoke with him it will be 4-5 weeks and he is awaiting a price. To me as long as it doesn't come out to something crazy I think I am in.

Rack is looking like 21 inch wide up front and 19 inch wide in the rear. Simular to the one I posed earlier. each "slot" is a bit narrowed at the back to conform to the trunk lines.

I will post some pictures when it delivers
