Hi Folks.

I was on a forum some time ago and saw a 83/84 Wing with an adjustable top trunk bracket. It was very well done, and allowed the rider to slide the trunk forward so that it became his backrest! He even had specs for the bracket.

Question, has anyone seen this or know of someone who has done this. I thiunk it is a great idea and would like to follow it up for mine.

Best regards!!

David

I'd love to see pictures of that.

Good luck on your search, by all means share some pictures if you run acroos it.

Working riding whenever we can. Wish I had more time to hang out with my goldwing family!

I saw one that was factory made on a 1100 on Ebay a couple of months ago. Looked pretty good and would love to have one! It would make the bike look really sharp with the sidecar attached at the same time.

what I mean by factory made, not made by Honda but an aftermarket accessory company.

It could've been this BM...

The rack slides back and forth, as does the backrest.
Dunno, maybe. Mount a box, and...

The older Kawasaki Voyagers had adjustable trunks...

They didn't move so far forward that the driver could use it though... But, if it was custom mounted onto another bike with a different box, then maybe it could.

Here is one on e-Bay right now, that actually, I wouldn't mind having myself:
