Solo seat?
My question is, I have a 2007 Sportster 1200 low. I have a new Viking trunk that I want to mount and be able to detach when I want too. However, My bike has a mustang solo seat. I need the mounting bracket to adjust enough to use the back rest as a driver rest. Harley makes such a bracket but It is pretty expensive. Any Suggestions ?

Mounting a Tour Pack on a 2005 DYNA FXDCI for two Up Riding?
Due to some physical restrictions and age, I added a Voyager Trike Kit to my bike some years back and it has been great. Now my wife says that the tall sissy bar with 7" X 18" Pad isn't enough. She likes the padded Tour Packs we've ween on larger Harleys but I can't find anyone that anyone says will work especially for a reasonable price. What you've done is great and any suggestions and advice would be accepted. Yeah, a Tri-Glide would fix all that but $40 K isn't in my budget. Thanks!

I'd never tell you to buy a different bike.
It has been so long since I was on ebay they terminated my account. I would look for a generic tour pak with the pad. You have the sissy bar on with the detachable hardware? I have 3 different thing I can interchange on the back of Effie, although the auxilliary gas tank has been on it full time for years now. Sorry for the late reply, I was just cleaning up my email and saw the notice.

You did a great job on you installation, need you help.
I had been serching for about three days for a 2 up tour rack with no luck. I was only able to find the solo detachable , witch met more exspensive changes. The mounting plate for the detachable sides you got, is just what I have been looking for. I have a 2008 1200C and I also want more storage. Can you give me the information to get the mounting rack. I wasn't sure if you are now selling them or if it was information on ebay . Thank you so much for sharing travels

Swaggerty Fort

two markers
I visited the Swaggerty Fort in about 2003 and I seem to remember both a Tennessee Historical Marker and a Heritage Marker at the site. I'd be interested in links to any historic events that might have involved the location, i.e.: Indian wars, Civil War battles, etc. I'd read somewhere that Indians once diverted the stream away from the fort suring a siege, but don't know if that's factual. I believe the Clear Creek area figured in some of the Chickamauga Cherokee history. I think I'm related to the Swaggerty family that built the fort as well as to Draggin' Canoe who led the Chickamauga Cherokee.

Thomas A. Mangino
I also got a bracelet in 1972 at bolling afb where I was stationed . I still wear it after 40 years and have never taken it off. I have never met Sgt Mangino but Thomas is in my heart and I tell anyone who asks that he is my friend. I\'m proud of my service to my country and I proudly fly the flag of the USA and the flag for our POW,s especialy for Thomas. I get pretty emotional when I think about him. Thomas Ryder , Tom

Sgt Daniel Nidds USAV
I was wondering about the star pin that goes into the bracelet, my mother got a bracelet for SGT Daniel Nidds in 1967, it's the original bracelet that was given to her all those years ago. My question is how to get the star pin that goes into the bracelet now that he is believed to be dead and not MIA, anyone know how to get one so i can complete my moms bracelet?

Malcolm X Marker Inscription
El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz was born Malcolm Little at University Hospital in Omaha, Nebraska, May 19, 1925. He was the son of Earl and Louise Little, 3448 Pinkney Street. Reverend Little helped organize the Universal Negro Improvement Association. After threats by night riders, the family moved to Milwaukee and later to Michigan, where Reverend Little allegedly was murdered. During his mother's illness, Malcolm was sent to Boston, then to New York, where he committed burglary. While serving a six and one-half year prison sentence, he became self-educated and converted to an American sect of Islam. After leaving prison, Malcolm took the name Malcolm X, studied under Elijah Muhammad, and became outspoken abut mistreatment of Blacks. His Autobiography of Malcolm X was published in 1964. During a pilgrimage to Mecca, he converted to orthodox Islam. He abandoned concepts of racial antagonism and counseled the need for human brotherhood and international cooperation. Malcolm X formed the Organization of Afro-American Unity in 1964 and became renowned as an articulate spokesperson for human rights. Malcolm X was assassinated February 21, 1965, in New York City. His teaching lives on.

Probably not. It takes the same space as the passenger seat.

The bracket on ebay
Ron I went out to Ebay and I can't find the bracket anywhere. Any back rack that is flat I would think could be used to work. Just to make sure you understand, neither the detachable rack or the tour pak is a HD product. Harley does make detachable racks though, I'm sure they could be made to work. Good luck! BTW I am looking for another detachable rack, I want to mount my 2nd gas tank as an auxiliary tank so I can go 400 miles between gas stops.

Try the above link and look at the DMY trunk. It is the same trunk I have. If they have the top rack in stock and you want on get it, I waited almost a year for them to be in stock. Its now SEPT 2010 and I am still happy with the trunk. A friend ordered the saddlebags from Mutazu and they are really small, so becareful if you are also looking for bags. Best of Luck, Cindy.
