Default Luggage rails?

Is there such a thing as a luggage rail, it would sort of be U-shaped and go around the seat. Then I could tie on and support a duffel bag.

I suppose it would attach at the top of the rear shocks, and maybe to the license plate gizmo. Might bend some conduit and make one..... Hmmm.

(I have a 2007 883)

I had a Sissy Bar that was solid enough to support a luggage rack, it was a Harley SB made for Sportsters.

Here is my first attempt. 1/2 inch thinwall conduit.

I'd rather run it from the shock bolts though. It's stronger than it looks.

Looks good. I like home made stuff. Less expensive & you can tailor it to your specific needs. It can sometimes be nearly impossible to find what you need, even in the huge aftermarket available for Harleys.
