Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sharp looking, durable. This rack is a nice touch to the rear fender of my sportster 48. I have hauled a couple of minor things on it, but bought it mostly for looks. Either way, it's done it's job, and continues to shine! August 25, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by recommended but only if you want to mount permanently... I bought this for my 2013 1200 Custom. I had purchased the bushings and installed them when I purchased my Express saddlebags. Juts as one person stated, I had to loosen up the rear mount bolts for the saddlebags to put this rack on. I also had to gently pry against the bags inner metal frame so it would clear the rack rear mount tabs. When I got it on the bike, I tightened the bolts back up. If I were to want to remove this rack, I would have to loosen the bolts again. May have to modify the frame for the bags. It presses against the rack. April 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Looks and performs great This rack is a great addition to my 1200 Low. Coupled with a solo seat it adds a great deal of character and function. Looks great against the Root Beer Candy color scheme. January 2, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by by extra mounting hardware!!! this luggage rack DOES NOT LINE UP!!!!!!!!!!!!! everytime I take it off or try to put it on I have to loosen all the bolts, put the rack on the loosen bolts, than tighten everything back up. eventually the cheap mounting hardware starts rounding off and needs to be replaced!!!!

I bought the chrome solo rack and find it very useful. However, one of the screws holding one of the latches fell out somewhere. I bought a set of the locking detachables hardware as a replacement, but they don't include the screws! :(

I am very resistant to buying another 185.00 rack simply because I am missing a 5 cent screw,

I am not finding the mounting hardware, but I already have the saddlebags with the spacers. Is that the mounting hardware?

I am not seeing new fender holes in the picture, or the need for them. Where are new holes needed?
