I have a '56 D3 and during my restoration I'm looking to go from a dual seat to a single seat & a rear rack.. although all the photos I've seen of a rear rack on a D3 are the plunger type frames, mine is of the swingarm variety, does one even exist?

If you weld/braze, then the tubing is cheap enough to buy.You could knock up a nice little number based on the D1`s or plunger D3 style.Pick-up points for locating anchors would be on the rear mudguard arms which are hefty bits of steel capable of managing a rack too I`d guess.

There was a carrier fitted to my D3SA when I got it in the mid '60's. However, I seem to remember it was more like a couple of pannier frames linked at the top. The side frames were 'L' shaped to support 2 canvas panniers and mounted onto the 2 frame extensions that support the rear mudguard. The D5 I have possibly had something similar as it has wing nuts on the extension fixings mentioned earlier. Both were/are fitted with a dual-seat.

Needless to say, being a teenager, panniers weren't cool and they were swiftly removed followed shortly by the frames due to me getting my leg tangled up in one side on one of the rare occasions I fell off! I had to be lifted up bodily along with the bike by 2 ladies passing by as I couldn't get up with my leg tangled in the carrier underneath the bike.

No injuries, but, Oh! the embarrassment embarassed

The actual cause of the accident was, primarily, inexperience linked with teenage stupidity, open face helmet, no goggles, pouring rain, late for work, unexpected queue of traffic, useless front brake and a long rear brake lever stamped on with urgency, locked up the back wheel and slid sideways into ignominious heap, fortunately without hitting anything! Lesson learned!

Anyway, back to the carrier question, is this any help?

Bumping an old thread to see if anyone has developed a rear carrier for a swing arm frame.  Is there a rear parcel carrier designed for single seat swing arm Bantam?

Part numbers 90-6870 in the 54-56 D1_D3 Spares manual and 90-6934 in the 57-58 D5 Spares manual look to be the same "Carrier complete". Now to find or reproduce one.
