    91 K100LT Tail Trunk On 95 R100RT

    I would like a larger trunk, so I can remove the saddlebags most of the time. The current 22 liter trunk is hardly big enough, so I need the saddlebags to supplement. With all prior Airheads, I used a large tail trunk, usually Luftmeister, and only mounted the bags when needed. In looking at candidates, the 91 K100LT trunk is specific to that year, and looks very similar, in styling, to the 95 RT. Not sure about capacity, but would estimate maybe 35-40 liters. The mounts look to be transferable from the K to the R, but may need a bit of tweaking. I have located a couple of 91 KLT trunks, but have not yet found the mounts.

    I like to keep Airheads near stock but, when pressed, choose function over form. Anyway, either trunk is bolt off & bolt on, so no permanent mods involved.

    Has anyone where ever installed a K bike trunk, or any other larger trunk, on a mono shock Airhead? If so, any words of wisdom?

    Thanks In Advance,
    Joe H

    The same basic rear mount that sits on top of the fender, other mount similarities are such that, I believe, if I can obtain 1991 K LT mounts, they'll be transferable to the RT, perhaps with a spacer here or there, lengthening, shortening, etc..
