    Rear Rack, I want a rack to take the place of the passenger seat.

    Rear Rack, I want a rack to take the place pf the passenger seat.

    Does anyone know of, or have seen a rear rack that replaces the passenger seat.

    I ride solo, and want a Rear Rack that Replaces the Rear Seat.

    I do not mind lifting the rear rack to fill the gas tank.

    I will be adding a 89'-99' Isuzu Rodeo Head rest as a back rest

    I have the same desire, but havent been able to find anything. I would actually prefer one that had a hole in it so I could access the fuel cap directly.

    With just three bolts on the back seat it would not be that hard to fabricate. However, no fab man is very cheap. Can be done in any small fab shop.

    With any luck one of the SW Motech rear racks will fit good enough to be used for that purpose. There are a lot of different models, but the trouble is finding the most compatible one.

    I'm with you guys. I never carry passengers, and if I can't have a cool HondaBikePro fuel cell (or equivalent) for back there, then I want to ditch the seat and go for a rack or luggage platform, that can simply leave a hole to access the fuel filler through.

    Wasn't there a member here that did this? Used a plastic cutting board, I think.

    Sent from a Speak & Spell wired to a record player, a saw blade, a fork, and an umbrella.

    This is the member that Draco mentioned above. For some reason I don't think it worked as well as he had hoped, but I think that might have been the hardware, not the concept.

    What I want is to get rid of the passenger hand grips and seat, and add a rear rack over the gas filler.

    But I want the rack to have a couple tubes for my back rest.

    I have used the Isuzu Rodeo Head rest, on another bike as a back rest, they are cheap $25.00 and dont look to bad either.

    Link to the 89-99' Isuzu Rodeo Head rest for use as a Back rest.

    Isuzu Rodeo 2 Seat Headrest 1998 2002 | eBay

    That head rest/Back rest with a tube mount to the Front of the new rack, with a tube mount you could adjust the height, or even remove it if there was a time that you would want to ride without it.

    On one bike that i have the Back rest on, I have a cover, over the back rest, to match the seat on it, it is a gray leather seat

    On another bike i have, it has a top box/Trunk, under the top box is a rack that the top box mounts to.

    The top box rack could be mounted to the passenger seat location.

    Most top boxes/trunk have a back rest already on them.

    I dont know how it would effect the bikes looks.

    I am trying to picture it, and am not liking what I imagine.

    Another thought was to relocate the filler further rear of the bike.

    I have been thinking, (always gets me in trouble) a couple different ways to go.

    I want a good professional look, and do not want any mickey mousing.
