Norton luggage rack

Q: I’m trying to find a sissy bar and luggage rack for my 1975 Norton Roadster, to no avail. It could be either of the two or a combination sissy bar/rack. It doesn’t need to carry much weight, either. The items I’d carry are an extra helmet and rain gear. Any suggestions? — Mitch Zyman/Merrick, New York

A: There are a couple of options, one of which we did an article on a couple of years ago. Here’s the link to that one. Also, check out Andover Norton’s website accessories page. Scroll down a bit and you’ll find their luggage racks. MC
