Its looking like I'll have to order one from overseas...the Brit and Australian look good...to bad they don't have them on the Nfield gear US site...Mr Mahoney, did you catch that?
I got this one from CMW. Had to make a small adaptor/extention for the rear posts to fit on my 2012 C5 but it looks good and is quite functional.http://nfieldgear.com/enfield-store/aftermarket-parts-accessories/luggage/electra-solo-carrier.html
check this out. it attaches to shock bolt and black frame rail.you can buy it here in oz for $80 plus postage to the usa
That mounts the same as this one below (from NField Gear) on my '08 AVL Classic. Are the C5's rear end & the AVL Classic's the same?
Would you be able to post a photo of how you mounted it? That's the rack (well, one of them) that I got, hoping to make it work on the B5, but it really doesn't fit:
Not the same? Yours attaches to what looks like seat mounts in back, and the front arms come down inside the "fender rails" (for lack of a better term?) to attach to the shock mounts.The C5 one clamps to the rails in back, and the front arms come down outside the fender rails. From the photo, it doesn't look like there's room for the arms to come down between the rail and fender...
No. Mine do not mount to the seat mounts.
Ah so. It's hard to see in that pic what's happening beneath that reflector button on the rack's rear arm!
Well, I have tabs on the rails, too. They're seat mounts. The rear of the factory double seat mount on those tabs. Hence my assumption that they were seat mounts. But apples and oranges; there's a lot of differences between our models which make fitting stuff a pain...My rack, that's supposed to fit my bike, lines up perfectly with those seat mount tabs on the back; it's the front that's the trouble. The rack came with bolts and spacers that slide over the bolts, but I can't make them work in any configuration...
bluesdaddy2-But, what are the two clamps (round with plastic chafing gear) I see attached to the side rails of your rack? They don't appear to be holding anything...
Those (showing) are two of four acorn capped studs that I have mounted strategically to act as a point for a rope or bungee cord to attach and/or tie off when securing something on the rack.
I have the Hitchcock rear rack on my 2012 C5, fits perfectly and looks great...[*snip*]...model # 92740.
Good idea BUT if you do that, fit it up first to make sure it mounts alright THEN chrome it.
Here's my C5 with the US factory pillion seat removed. Not the most visually stunning option but I'm the less-is-more type when it comes to washing and polishing anyway so it fits in fine with the working-bike look I think.
looks good, where did you get the bike cover from and do you like it?
It's a Bilt cover, I think I got it from Cycle Gear when I was in the States last year. It's lasted about a year so far but is starting to show its age. Quite faded and coming apart at the bottom a bit. It's also not 100% waterproof. It will probably last another 6 months or so and then I'll have to chuck it. On the plus side it was pretty cheap, about $30-40 as far as I remember.
