Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Shad Rack for 1998 CB500S

Post by bikerbob on Wed 17 Nov 2010, 11:33 pm

I have a CB500S bought from new in May 1998, which I purchased a full set of panniers, top-box and full rack from Shad. I have just bought a very low mileage CB500s first registered in August 1998 and wanted a new or good condition Shad rack so that I can use the three boxes on either bike. Shad have stopped making the rack to take the side pannier boxes and I have only seen one website offering a full rack which looks rather different to mine and is quite expensive. Has anyone any knowledge or advice to help, eg. can any other rack take Shad boxes?

The only other rack I know that'll fit a shad box is sw motech but unfortunately they don't make one for a cb500.

Other than keeping an eye out on ebay in the hope that one turns up, your best bet is probably to see if you can find someone who''ll fab one from the dimensions of the one you already have (or mod one for a different bike).

Hepco Becker Rack

Post by bikerbob on Sun 02 Oct 2011, 3:21 pm

Hi
To anyone who may like to know...I eventually discovered that Hepco Becker of Germany make a rack for the CB500. I purchased one for about £200 new. The assembly instructions were pretty bad with inconsistent pictures/diagrams but I eventually fitted it and bought a set of 3 boxes on E-bay in excellent condition...sorted
