I asked this over at scootrally but not much as far as replies. I don't like the look of racks on vintage bikes, but I need one for the Chattanooga Corsa.
Is there a good quality rear rack that fits a U.S spec (tractor taillight) Sprint/ Rally to carry a few gallons of gas amount of weight available? SIP looks to have a few.

Hey Price. Yea, I saw your post. Its a tough one cause if your thinking racks and old scoots, then you're thinking bbq rack(for that weight) and they don't make them anymore.

At least that's my thought. A bbq rack with or without the seat is what you want.

Call around to some shops and see if they have one laying around.

Scootnet also.

Expect to pay around 100 for one, without the seat.

The Madrid Rack is the best looking and functional rack out there IMHO. Here is the Lambretta equivalent. Scooters Originali has them from time to time, but they are out. You can get one from Allstyles right now. Not cheap but worth the money. Expect to receive your item within a week and a half of ordering if in stock.

Yea that's a beautiful rack, but Price has mentioned he wants to carry about 24 pounds in fuel as well as other stuff.

At least thats what I read.

The Madrid folds out to be pretty large and can carry a ton of stuff. But I agree if you are just looking for a quick fix stateside and nothing esthetically permanent a barbecue rack will do the trick.

I have this one that I do not want anymore. For a rack it's cool... OG. If you cover shipping I will gift it to you. PM me if you like.

Lets see what Price says. I read into it as he is looking for a road trip/ralley rack and maybe not permanent.

The bbq rack is the work horse but far from stylish. I used my rack for hauling but then removed when not needed.

SammyM, that's an incredible offer. If your ok with me wielding support on the bottom and maybe modify it a bit for my purposes I'll take you up on it.
The back story why I'm doing this is because the bike I was going to race got stolen and vandalized and I have to get my Rally on the road in time for the race now.

That's correct I'm taking it off after the event. Matt Martin did offer to let me borrow his which was very nice.

On another note I want to get one of these for my Sprint V that has the lower holes for the license plates that will hold it. The US spec Rally 200 doesn't have those holes.



I kind of like the look of it and would be useful every once in a while.
