  • Luggage Racks

    First luggage rack is from Atlas Cycle Accessories. Pics 1-3. The second one I can't remember the name stamped on it. Pics 4-5. It may have been National Cycle? I had it replated several years ago and the polisher buffed off the company name. That was MY fault for not giving them specific instructions. I have not seen a rack like it. Most of them have the bars held on by acorn nuts. But this one looks to be pressed together.CIMG1407.JPGCIMG1408.JPGCIMG1409.JPGCIMG1413.JPGCIMG1414.JPG

    Thanks for saving your observations, Craig!

    Period Aftermarket info is priceless after decades of judging purge.

    One of them interfered with the rivets on milwaukee fenders...

    (Or maybe it was just a Tedd's?)

              I may have identified this luggage rack. Ebay seller "abcgang" has one like it for sale. Item # 383200028093. It is stamped Nation-Bilt. I would supply a link, but I have no idea how to do it.

                A link isvery simple Craig, easier than signing in to this site... at the top of the page is the page adress (HTTP....etc). Just highlight it and copy and paste into your post.

                https://www.ebay.com/itm/Original-Na...MAAOSwOEJdnJaT

                and the 4 rail rack he shows is likely for a smaller bike.

                This one is a Comisky

                  Robbie; I've never got the copy and paste figured out. But, I'll try it again. Great eyeball on the number of rails. Is your luggage rack stamped with Comisky? Also, great display cases and contents !!

                    Yes, I have a couple, one with steel end plates and one with aluminum.

                        Robbie, the 3rd picture of the Olive Green rack; how many years was that available from H-D?

                          Not exactly the same over the years but it carries a 1917 part number. There are lots of variations on construction to fit different style fenders over the years. The one pictured fits the '34 up style wide fenders and is the same for BT and 45 except for lower mounting hardware. It ended with introduction of the big flat rack in '42 although it continued the same part number for either style.

                            I have one that looks like number 2. It has aluminum end pieces and HARLEY-DAVIDSON is stamped on the end pieces. It is some kind of knockoff as H-D never had that Item that I have been able to find.

                              It looks like my mystery is solved.
