I have the Show Chrome one and I like it real well.
Be sure to add the large star washers and do what you can to reinforce the lid where the mounts get drilled.
That material is thin and likes to flex and starts getting radial cracks in the lid plastic outward from the rack mount points. Especially the rearmost ones.

Not pushing it. It's just there if people need it and you will still need the large star washers for the top.

I have the Kury one and the welds are rusting bad. I would love to get the new aluminum style but the holes won't line up, I compared them at Americade it's not even close.

I have always had great luck with ChromeWorld, I even go there sometime-they are about 2 hours away from me.

I would suggest to also buy the risers http://www.cyclemaxohio.com/inc/sdetail/23797

I mounted my rack without them and it was close to impossible to clean under the rack. Then I got the risers and life is better. It also makes it better for strapping downyour cargo ( folding chair, tarp poles, etc.)

It says in the description,,,,,, you may have to drill them a bit larger. And yes,,,, I did that too,,,,,,,, easy and works great.

I would suggest reinforcing it as much as possible, po had one on when I bought it and I have spider cracks on every hole. I regretfully took it off to stop them from spreading worse. But I love the looks of a nice chrome rack on the bike.

The Show Chrome finish lasts longer than the Kury. It's a shame that Kury chrome is just rubbish quality, because they look really good otherwise.
