The OEM retaining plate had thin foam rubber piece glued on the underside that tends to disintegrate with age. You might want to replace it if it's shot or missing. The OEM kit also came with a piece of clear contact adhesive that was attached to the ducktail to prevent paint damage when fitting and removing the plate. I used anti slip deck tape in lieu of the clear.
Regards Martin.
Hi Martin. Iím after a topbox retaining plate now. Is that the correct term for it?
Thanks.

I believe you got the Daily Double.  Another photo on the thread shows it on an R100RS.   Mine looks to be missing a brace piece to mount it correctly.  I'll get around to offering it up and see what response I get.  Thanks for the information.

It looks vaguely like an R65 rack, this thread may be helpful.  https://forums.bmwmoa.org/showthread.php?71381-Installing-monosock-reynolds-backrest-rack  Pricey buggers on ebay, you may have a small fortune hanging on that nail.

Soggz BMW refers to it as the mounting plate. Motoworks shows them as available secondhand for 22 pound.

Soggs, I'd love to post a photo but sadly despite my generally good IT skills this website kills me. I've managed occasionally to upload photos but usually when I'm done uploading they disappear.

 this is the best one I could find and it's in a thread that you started!!

Hi Martin.
I rang them, but they are rare as hens teeth. I would like a few detailed pics of one to see what I can knock up in the lab.

There is a pin that goes through the bottom of the 22 L and it threads with a 1/4 turn into the plate that is in the photo. That is the plate. Unless I'm misunderstanding your question?

Piccies of mounting plate and some piccies of the pin. However unless you are reasonably competent and have a good workshop you would be better off either waiting for one to turn up or find a simpler alternative way of mounting it.

Unless I am completely misunderstanding you the plate you are looking for is onn the right of the picture you posted.  The rack itself is on the left and the plate is on the right.  That plate fits into the rack and then the 22 lt box attaches to it.

 Motorworks is going to be your best bet, if they don't have what you want you can request that they hold the item and contact you when it becomes available.

I think a point is trying to be made that MaxBMW in New Hampshire, USA is listing them as available. They might not be in house now but they can get them. If they can't get them at all, they list them as NA or backorder.

With a regular search of eBay and other sites, everything turns up eventually though.
