dzrtracin, ricin?

914 ? I thought the last known example of the 914 rusted out in Hawaii?
Small block Chevy for VW pancake? No problem! Make sure you got correct crank rotation. 5 reverse gears is wicked but hard to exploit

Not much for hard luggage options unless you fab it up yourself. The XR doesn't have much of a subframe to attach stuff to.

This place has luggage side racks, but you may have to find hard luggage the mount to them...like Pelican cases

I should clarify. I have not seen pics of hard cases. I would imagine it would take a little work to set something for hard cases because of the light subframe. YMMV.

This place makes frames for soft cases.

I fabricated the bags myself because I couldn't find anything good for the XR.
I carried the sleeping bag on the left, the mattress on the right and the tent on top. They are made out of waterproof heavy material. I can install them in about 15 seconds with bungee cords.
I don't feel the bags at all wile riding. They don't move. They are rock steady. All the rest I carried on the back pack. It's a very nice setup.
I almost forgot to mention the bags makes the seat wider which is great for long rides.
Here is one more pic

Those bags look perfect! Care to share a view of the top of the seat with them installed?

I hope these photos help. Those bags are not round, they are more like a tear drop shape. They have a heavy duty straps all around with loops for the bungee cords. The sheep skin is a nice added feature for very long rides, it's confortable and "incognito" (I don't like a big sheep skin hanging all over)
I used a regular sewing machine to make them but that material was a little to much for the poor sewing machine. If you are going to build one, I recomend to borrow a heavy duty one if you can.
Cheers
B.
