  • 1914 Harley luggage rack

    Can anybody out there help me? I am looking for the correct luggage rack for my 1914 Harley. Please email me at panhead.matz742@gmail.com

    I've seen your post for more than a few weeks now and I've wondered if the '14 luggage carrier was different than the ones that followed. Sure enough, the 1914 carrier is unique which means it's gong to be a tough one to find. I wish you luck, but if you can't find an original, it looks like you might be able to alter a later one to work. I guess that's easy for me to say without an original to compare

      I have some later ones, but i don't know what it would take to modify them to 14 specs.

        I did some research a few years ago on this. There is a photo in "The Legend Begins" in the 1914 section. You can see the rack does not have the two diagonal supports that go from the rear top crossover to each rear leg. This is the only difference I could find. There was one on my 1915. I do not know how to post photos here. If you want some photos my email is , duda@rduda.com. Thanks.

          I am not positive that this is a 14. However the rack is unlike any I have seen. It is made from tube and not stamped half round material like others I have. There are no braces on the rear inside.

            I believe Chris is correct that the 1914 carrier is made of tubing and is not a stamping like later carriers. So, a later carrier wouldn't be right.

              As a side note, the later carriers were an amazing example of the tool, and die art and Harley-Davidson had some of the best die makers in the motorcycle trade.
