Finally got my rack system finished up, sort of. Gotta clean it up a bit and paint it but this is pretty much it. I'm pleased with how it turned out for being made with scrap metal and put together hastily with my mig welder. I could've been patient and taken it and tig'd it up but I'm not good with patience.

F800GS Pelican Storm Top case

I decided to replace my soft tail pack that was my camp cooking kit with a larger Pelican case. I wanted to be able to remove it easily so the entire kit could be carried to where ever it was needed, or be quickly removed when not needed/wanted on the bike.

I have the Touratech stainless luggage plate which has a large tube frame on the edges. I fabricated a mounting system that takes advantage of that and the plates trapezoid shape. Basically, two side blocks that wedge tight on the sides and a third on the back with a securing plate to hold it on. Just two thumb screws to remove it. I used a plastic cutting board cut to fit the bottom of the case to add stiffness and to fill the gap between the case and luggage plate. I rabbeted the edges so it fits flush to the bottom of the case and allows the mounting blocks to fit flush as well.

This is a really great job. How did you fabricate the aluminum clips?

I machined them out of solid aluminum pieces using my milling machine and lathe.

Well, sure ... if you have that kind of horsepower!
I'm working with hacksaws, hand files and cordless drills.

I do consider myself fortunate to have nice toys, I mean tools to work with. I bought the benchtop mill about a year ago and have used it for a few bike related projects.

You guys ever think about using a pair of fishing waders? They'd be waterproof then!
