Krauser Bags on Tonti
« on: April 04, 2021, 06:44:06 AM »
Does anyone know of a source for racks for mounting classic Krauser/ Hepco Becker side cases on a G5? Thanks.

I did a set up like Charlie's on my 89 Mille' GT a long time ago.  I remember making my own brackets to attach the cast mounts to the bike. I used 3/16" this x 1" flat steel and fab'd and bent and drilled until I liked what I had.
yeah, I might be addicted to brake fluid. But I can stop any time I want.

They pop up on ebay occasionally.  Period BMW racks are more common and can be modified readily.
