I recently purchased a '68 Twenty and it has a rear rack. Though the color matches the bike perfectly (bronze green), I think it was an add-on, as the stays are much too long, making the rack too high in the back.
I see many R20's out there (including the '76 catalog page courtesy of Sheldon Brown, attached) which have aluminum racks (Pletscher?) that run level to the ground, mere inches above the rear wheel. I'd like to find one on ebay, but am unsure how long the stays are. I can eyeball about 15" from the many pictures I see. Can someone confirm please? Am I right in assuming that the rack I have is after-market equipment?
Thanks for the help, BFers!
