Water Proof Radio Box

I built this box to hold my radio and iPod gear. It has kept things dry through a lot of rain. Power comes into the box where there is an Autocomm system, a GMRS radio that is powered off the bike battery and has an external antenna. The radio, iPod and GPS go through the Autocomm.

And there's enough room left over to store a few things.


Mounts where the rear seat would go, I can strap things on top as I need to


Quick disconnects in the back so I can remove when I want to


Plug on the front for my helmet. Homemade hinges were fun to make.

Laugh Stuff I made

lets see...I had to patch my valve cover with epoxy and a bit of license plate after chasing my enduro buddies up some rocky ravines



...and I had to fabricate my own little bracket to hold the TrailTech X2 headlamp, after demolishing the stock headlight and fender (and being too cheap to drop $650 on replacement parts)







I have a few other projects that I have never finished...partly because of my poor skills, and partly because of poor time management.

Howdy Ricky! I thought of this penny-tech method of attaching a GPS mount to my dirt bike, should work on other bikes too:

at one point in my life I decided I had way too much hair on my head, and that it was the wrong color, so I made this...







worked great. Now I have much less hair, and what is there is turning nice and gray.
