Sissy bar with luggage rack ?

Now that I have this luggage rack, can I still add a removable sissy bar? Or do I have to look at the non-detachable sissy bars ? Thanks
Asked by: SeSaSu

will it fit

I have the 2003 Anniversary FLHRC with the leather saddle bags. I want to put a luggage rack on the back. I have the removable sissy bar 52933-97b The 53011-98 fits using the separate saddlebag hinge stop kit. however does the 53743-97 rack fit if I but the docking hardware??? The pic in the HD book on page 350 shows it on leather saddle bags but it does not describe it in the discretion... Im confused. also the size says 12 inches long and 14 inches wide.... thats seems awefly big using a measuring tape on the back of my bike. I want to get the biggest size rack available Thank you so much

It fits and looks great on a 2000 FLHRCI Road King Classic, so it should fit on your 2003. The touring frame was not changed until 2009.
