    Interesting... great product.

    Post some of the top box $ options-photos and sizes when you get a chance. Prefer something without the angles on the lid.... I think.

    Also the lead time you will you need to crank one out...

    Thanks!

    Current lead time on raw aluminum will ship next week. Add 20 days for powder to be safe.

    I can make whatever top box shape or size that you want. I really don't have any pics yet. Post #1 pricing is pretty close on any size you want.

    Hey Kirk,

    Great looking stuff. Looking for tool boxes for an 800GS and a 1200GS. Similar to the ones you made for Jeff's DR650 tool box, and it looks like you made one for J's 2005GS, hard to tell. Would be looking for them to be made in raw aluminum. Can you let me know if it is possible and, if so, what would be the price and delivery time, and if you need more info. I already have panniers and would be mounting the tool boxes in the wide space between the panniers and rear wheel.

    OK let me know and thanks,

    Danny

    Thanks, Danny.

    I can make those this week and have 'em in the mail by Wednesday. You will have to provide me with dimensions, where the mounting flange needs to be, etc.

    Raw aluminum, removable lid with 2) small rotary draw latches with padlock ears will be $125.

    Raw, hinged lid with a Protex keyed, over-center draw latch will be $150.

    ^ Plus shipping.

    - Kirk.

    The features are getting better and better.

    Jealous of your talents. We will do business some day, certainly.

    I'm using the 60mm x 60mm "V1" version. The M8 x 1.25 nuts are not included.

    It appears that they have plants in Turkey and Germany. It's where the "big blues" come from as well. The US supplier is active on eBay under the username electrausa. Nice hardware at nice prices.

    Electra USA also has their own website found here... http://electrausa.net/ I normally have hardware on my doorstep about 3 days after ordering.

    I've got the Piaa LP530s, great lights.

    Nice job on the mounts too. Wish I was lived closer.
