I just received word that Maple Farkles is back in business under the management of Jim Hatch.
I sent off an enquiry about getting a pillion mounted rack and am awaiting a reply.

Ever get a response from Jim?
I emailed Jim Hatch (or I thought I did) a week ago. While I have not had a reply I have just now emailed him again through a different email address ([email protected]) I found after digging through some pages on the Maple Farkles website. I'll see what happens.

After a lot of chasing I finally heard from Jim in mid October. I confirmed my order for a pillion mounted luggage rack .... and am still waiting.
Has anyone ordered and received anything from Jim since he took over in Aug. '19?

I was able to get a few small items from Jim a month or so ago. Took a bit of follow up but eventually I got what I needed.

After 4 months of chasing I am giving up on the resurrected Maple Farkles and Jim Hatch.
While I understand that life can get in the way of business, it's pointless me hoping to get a Maple Farkles pillion mounted luggage rack.

Ian,
If you find a source let me know? The main topic indicates 2014-2019? I believe the 2019 configuration is different/changed. I gave up last year on any Maple Farkles solution, but was hoping.

I finally gave up and just designed my own pillion rack for the Harley so that I could make it to Jacksonville with auxiliary tank in place

I know two of us who had a Maple Farkle AUX tank for a 2016 and 2017 BMW RT. I think that is the only two Mike made. BBG45-2.jpg

Greg,
I’m not sure how many were made, but after several unsuccessful attempts to have a seat rack made I gave up and that’s when I asked about buying yours. Which you sold with the bike to Paul, I believe.

Did you reach out to Paul Tong? He may be willing to sell the AUX tank at this point as he has been doing a lot of two riding. I will send you a PM.

Greg,
I haven’t reached out to Paul, figured he was using it. I actually only want the seat rack portion. I’m not doing long enough rides to require an aux tank anymore. Thanks for the information and help.
