We are looking for a roadmaster trunk set up and ready to hook up to a 2015 Chieftain, black seat would be nice. A reasonable price would be great also!
@Thelastbill i didn’t use indians quick disconnect they wanted $500 at the time which was insane. I went with Marcus a member on here who owns a shop that also makes them shipping and all was 1/2 the price. But I did see Indian has them down to about $200 now. It’s not a lot of work line it up drill and bolt it down. If you decide to give it a go hit me up I’ll walk you thru it.
I guess the question is will it fit on the Chieftains hookups. Mounting a tourpak to it looks no different then what I did to mineThat was my thread here: https://www.indianmotorcycles.net/threads/indian-trunk-base-clearance.309996/
It is for the Classic Leather Trunk mount...the side mounting plates are the same as the painted Trunk the center section is different though.
That’s a good possibility indians vs Harleys the indian trunk is 30 to 35lb heavier I can put my Harley tourpak on my indian by myself. My victory tourpak same way it weighed 50 lbs my brother says his indian trunk is closer to 60The weld bumper for the painted trunk bolts to the base and to the trunk in the back. The bumper for the Classic leather bag doesn't. My guess is the weight of the painted trunk requires more support
When I saw the clearance trunk mount on the website it was "out of stock" and I asked to be notified when they were available. A day or two later I was checking the "clearance" section again and was able to order one on the spot. I never did receive a notification that they were in stock, but I did receive the base less than a week after ordering it. As noted by KnS the center plate is different and I also noted that there is no chrome bumper (1020997-156) on this base (but the mounting holes are there).
So what I learned is to keep checking the Indian website for availability.
