Blackburn Front Rack Compatabilty

I already have the black burn low rider (FL-1). My forks do not have eyelets for mounting, therefore i used the U-bolts to attach the rack. If i want to combine this rack with the blackburn AF-1 or MT-F will i be able to do this?

Thanks for looking, any help appreciated.

You can mount the AF-1 and the FL-1 together but I think the MT-F mounted with the FL-1 will be trickier. A friend of mine combined my FL-1 with his AF-1 years ago with no problems. You'll need to use the 2 P-clamps for the hoop to hold the 2 most vertical (rear) struts on the AF-1 to the middle of the plate on the FL-1. The bottoms of the rear struts on the AF-1 (that bolt to the drop out eyelets) will have to be outside (or on top) of the FL-1's strut ends (that bolt to the hoop). I've included a couple of photos of an old low rider and a AF-1 copy to show you what I mean. Hope that helps!
