Hi guys.

Proud owner of a CX650C.

I'm not finding any readily available or manufactured form of luggage rack/sissy bar pad available. Scouring the web and forums I do see they pop up every once in a while, but no-one says who their made by or if they have a model #. Would be fairly simple to make them if I had the tools and wanted to get them chromed, and I'm wondering if that's what these ones are that pop up every once in a while. Maybe someone made them or had them made?

Anyone have one made by one of the major aftermarket parts makers? If so could you provide the model #?

Anyone know where I can buy one new or used?



I'll attach a couple pics I have found on the web:

Unfortunately the CX650 is a whole different animal than the 500 in terms of how a luggage rack would attach.

In fact there are countless aftermarket sissy bar/racks available for the CX500.

But Alas, since the CX650 was only made for one year, there is not much available.



I'm sure the forum would benefit from your pics and diagrams of your CX500 setup when you have it finished.

I've just acquired a cherry CX650C with only 1,827 original miles. Absolutely perfect. I need to acquire/fabricate a padded sissy bar with luggage platform/shelf. It appears I can leave the stock brackets, remove the existing handle from the brackets, remove the little plastic keyed document compartment and install an assembly directly to the brackets as long as the center line on the posts lines up, the posts are reasonably close to the stock post diameter and the mounting holes in the posts line up with the bolt holes inside the brackets. Anybody try this approach? What did you find that works and where do I obtain it? The sissy bar itself can be short or tall, must have a pad and shelf as this is primarily for luggage. It must be robust and chrome. Thanks!
