Pelican Topbox Setups: Let's see 'em

Let's see some pictures of your Pelican Topbox setup, including mounts.

Interested in making something for my bike in the near future and want to see what everyone else is using.

Seahorse Cases

I'm going with one of these for my topbox. Got it for $52 shipped with the pick-n-pluck foam included.

Can get it for about $16 less if you don't want the foam. Deepest one that would match the size of my top plate. Wanted the depth for pillion backrest.

From what I've read, they are not as strong as pelican, but probably won't take too much of an impact up there. I'm in trouble if it does!

Will get here Mon/Tues next week. Will try to post pics next weekend.

The Twisted Throttle pelican hardware kit is a nice set up.

I like the coat hooks. Are they for helmets?

SeaHorse box with an OnGuard lock, and part of a plastic cutting board. I welded sub frame mounts to the "U" and the lock bar is bolted to the back of the box. Used the cutting board to make a lip that fits the front of the "U". Got the idea from the farkel thread.

I was rocking this when I had the Strom. There were bolt holes in the rear rack so I just literally ran a through bolt and fastened it with washers and locknuts.

I'm so tired of everything being black on motorcycles and are digging the "industrial" gray look!

If you're looking for a way to mount Peli cases as lift-on, lift-off panniers or as a top box, consider this:

My solution (1st attempt) may not be the prettiest, but it's held up to several thousand miles of European touring and the occasional bike drop without letting me down once or ever letting go of the cases and I regularly haul 13+ kg per case.





It can also be adapted to work with different flat carrier frames providing you stick with the basic rail layout as this provides the broadest spread of load support as well as ensuring the cases can't jump or slide off.

I'd suggest using a smaller 5mm thick aluminium intermediate plate bolted to each existing carrier hoop to achieve this. Maybe 12" x 8" or thereabouts and then scale down the rail dimensions so they fit comfortably on a plate this size.

Anyway, check out the following (but turn down the volume as I added a soundtrack I now regret). You'll want the second half of the vid as the first half focuses on my design of the rear rack:

BTW The cases I used are industrial black, but at only 40 a case, I don't really care.
