Default Solo fender luggage rack for '18 Fat Bob?

Hi,

I was thinking of getting a solo seat and putting a fender-mounted luggage rack behind it. Seems like there are billions of those on the market, but none fit it looks like the Sportster ones are about 7" hole to hole, and the older Softail ones are about 10.5" hole to hole. I measured the FXFB at about 9" hole to hole.Does that sound familiar? Anyone know of any other model that used about 9" center to center on the mounting holes?

Please help.

I didn't find the right soltion from the Internet.

Hey mate ,go to your local engineering shop and get them to make up what YOU want, then get it powder coated or chromed and I bet it'll be half the price of a HD one

On a somewhat related note, it seems like both the aftermarket and OEM are slow to come out with products for the ‘18 Softails.

In my own case, I contacted Le Pera back in Dec about a Bare Bones seat for an ‘18 Deluxe. They replied back with, “March”, but there’s nothing on their website yet, and none of the vendors who carry Le Pera have anything so far.

<shakes fist at sky>

My mate hand the same problem with a softail slim, they made aftermarket and oem stuff for every other Harley but he couldn't get what he wanted for the slim so he ended up trading it for a Fatboy low .
