Wanted.. rear rack C90

Post by damien.wrl » Thu Aug 20, 2020 5:42 pm

A long shot but someone might be selling a bike and part with one??? I am after a mint/nos rear rack for a C90 1988 , think it might be the dealer fitment but any advice identification will be useful In the search... It’s the one with no side pannier bars and no need to move indicators..., oh if it has a nice Rickman box that would be good to ....

This one

Can't swear to it but think that is one of the Rickman range sold about 1984/5. Had a couple and I'm sure one of them still had a Rickman sticky label where the box had protected it for 35 years. Both came off C90Es.

As to finding a mint/NOS one, you would need to be very lucky IMHO as they would have spent a life with a box bolted on and corrosion sets in where you can't clean it. Stripping and rechroming one is an option but expensive. The one in the pic looks to have been painted silver.

Pic showing where the Rickman label was and cleaned up as best I could do.

Good luck with your search! :D

Just a thought. Whatever you find make sure you get the rear stays and the bracket that bolts behind the number plate, it'll save hours of faffing about. :D

Had one of these too, probably not Rickman but similar and rear stays and bracket are different. Chrome was abysmal so it got hammerited.

Thanks for the heads up on the number plate bar, didn’t know about that bit, most of the ones I have seen have just the two vertical struts ...

New year bump, I am not getting much luck trying to get bike sellers to part with a rack separately... however has anyone an old scruffy one I can get cheap, I have found a company who will use it as a pattern for a stainless version...
