1987 BMW R65 luggage

Howdy

I was wondering if anyone could identify what luggage goes with these racks

Thanks

Mike

These are the cases that fit those mounts. This set is available if you are interested. I replaced them with the old style Kraters....

Same cases as the K bikes of the era use.

If I still had every dollar I spent on motorbikes I would be a richer man but a poorer person.

I have the K bike cases on my racks, but usually have smaller fiberglass top loaders on for commuting. They drop on and secure with a bolt, just a few seconds longer to mount than the latch of the stock panniers.

Interesting tank. Did not realize the r100r/gs tank fits the monos.

I don't know, but hunter greyghost has some on one of his XS650's, so maybe they are Australian. They were white with BMW logos when I got them. I used to have seperate racks for them, but changing panniers meant changing racks, now I can swap and keep the racks on the bike, they don't look too obvious with no bags.

No, the Krauser Starlet bags fit the older BMW (Krauser) bag mounts. I have some of the Krauser Starlet bags, and they will not fit the mount shown on your 1987 R65. As noted in this thread, the mounts on your R65 are the "integral case" mounts which were also used on K75's and K100's from 1982-1992.
