Contemplating the purchase of the Rivco solo rack for my R and was looking at the attachment points.

My question to what point does it attach to in the front? I have a Mustang seat and passenger pad but I like the solo look exposing the rear fender and just use chrome button head bolts to fill the holes when the rear seat is not in use.

Does this unit attach to the stock mounting bracket for the original passenger seat ? Mine is removed for the mustang set-up and only the holes are there, or does this unit attach to the same holes in the rear fender? The pictures are very vague for installation tips. Thanks in advance.

Got one on my bike. Comes with chrome mounting brackets that use the original fender holes behind the seat. Also the rear bolt has a rubber grommet that spaces the rack ~1" above the fender. I used the chrome bolts that fasten the strap and seat down, instead of the olive drab bolts that held the original bracket.

Takes a few tries to get the chrome brackets aligned just right.
