If you decide to reinstall the Reynolds, I see where my mount is different. Instead of drilling a hole in the Reynolds to use a longer mounting bolt, I zip-tied the Z-rack. Testing was done with 27 pounds of dive weights, driving along backroads and rough graded gravel community parks. No issues, and it adds to the excitement and spirit of adventure vs. highway junk show, while toodling along on the Brick with the bicycle on the rack.

I don't understand why your Z thingie doesn't line up with your Reynolds rack. After work I have to go look at my setup and ponder how this could be.

I'm in the market for a 240 Reynolds. It will fit my bike nicely. With the Corbin "Rumble" set there's no clearance for an Iconic.

Allow me to have the right of first refusal, unless it's already spoken for....

Could you let me know the findings? I tried using a carriage bolt, and sliding the Z-rack into the "U" bracket space behind the 240 rack's side, but it didn't leave space to wiggle into the bricks frame mount. I half considered just making a short drop shackle to bolt to the 240 and then bolt onto the Z, but it looked wonky in prefab.

Will do.  Right now it's sitting in the garage waiting until I decide for sure I don't need or want it.  I'll drop you a note if I decide to make it go away.

What kind of rack is on the back of your  bike?  Looks more like something of interest to me.

Good deal on that. Just thinking the 240 would be the way to go for an 18" tent and bedroll.
my rear rack is just the stock rack from BMW. The Iconic mounts to it with an adapter plate. The entire assembly then relies on the rear cowl for support. The Reynolds is a frame mount and could carry a more weight with less flex.

 My bike came disassembled with busted up plastic front and rear.
