VERY nice! What a cool project. I am too chicken to ever try something like that. Looks great, lots of functionality, cheap, and the satisfaction of making it yourself - CONGRATS!

Love the blue wheels also.

Well done!

I really like the work you've accomplished! Very well done . . . . .

Rather than paint, perhaps cover it with the hyde of Naughas . . . . .

Thanks, how about a small square pattern like the seat?

I appreciate everyones comments, I very happy with the way it turned out. I found some foam padding that I lined the inside with, about an 1/2 thick so my camera and tablet will ride comfortably.

Bumping this for an update and because it's been so damn handy having it.

No wear to amount to anything except between it and the rack. Some of the paint has wore off the smuggler over time so I could have allowed more clearance.
The top is still hinged well but shows a few scuffs from my boots.

With so many bikes out there with two piece seats this would make a good project for any solo rider.

Thanks, yes it was.
May make some side covers for my K75 low seat next. That looks pretty simple in comparison.
