See the whole boring story here...

You'll see a progression of the idea, from aluminum to really bad wood, to something acceptrable...

dovetailed mounts for rear top box with adjustment rod - sliding the box forward or backward. There's three different positions on mine now - way back, in the middle and all the way forward (makes a decent backrest).
The dovetails are made out of composite decking material - Home Depot.
The Female parts attached tot eh bike - note the rod laying across...


and here is the male portion on the bottom of the box.



It's a Doskocil box I got on ebay - $30 shipped - it's got the pressure equalizer valve and a large o-ring around the perimiter making it waterproof. Just like a pelican but cheaper and fwiw, Pelicans for a top box seem to be either just too big or just too small - this one's a perfect size.



There's more on a page here...

Any questions?

+1.

Easy to make multiple mounts for different sized boxes, too.

Here's my video camera mount. Extremely flexible positioning, made of professional lighting & grip parts.

So do you like this setup? How long are you using it? Isn't camera vulnerable to flying flies, bees and small rocks from the road? I guess you won't take it to gravel road or do you think it'll be allright?

I like this idea very much and it seems good to make shots with different angle or even shooting your face and rear of the bike if you mount it on front of the bike.

I like it a lot, although I'm going to modify it to increase its flexibility even more. I've got a extra lens on the front specifically to catch bugs and take the brunt of impact from road debris. I've taken it on gravel although I'd keep it mounted up like it is seen in the photo.

I've done about 1500 miles with it configured like this.

Here's my home made skid plate for my centerstand. Made from .100 6061 T6 aluminum.



The brackets I made from a 5/8" (I think?) thick piece of aluminum. Cutting the big hole first than splitting it into two pieces before cutting them out and shaping them into two brakets. I drilled and tapped all the holes and installed some nice aircraft quality NAS titainium bolts.
