Thought I would give Dave a bit of a bump.
From initial email enquiry to him about the tool box, several emails later, to one winging it's way to my corner of the world (if the world had corners New Zealand would be in one ) less than 24 hours passed... that's impressive.
Now for the part I don't do so well... waiting :huh
Thanks for the bump! Proud to have a box in NZ now.
Have some boxes built up and ready to ship.
I'll be at the Overland Expo in Flagstaff May 17-20, camped at the Rawhyde Rally site.
Those boxes look fantastic. What's the approximate internal dimensions of the box? I realize it's not exactly square, mostly I'm wondering width so I can see if my current tool kit fits without finding a new bag.
I swore off farkling the bike for a bit, but this just moved to the top of the list.
The door opening is 10"w x 5" high. Height of 5" is about half the width of the box, then tapers to a bit over 3".
That's the opening size. The inside of the box is bigger... about 12 x 7, tapering on the end. I get an Aerostich tool roll in there and cram a few other things around it.
I have some to ship this week, then I'm off to the Overland Expo for a couple of weeks of riding.
Awesome! Called Dave 6pm Monday local time here in Ohio to see if there was anyway to get one of his tool boxes out to me asap as we're leaving on a cross country run Thursday. 8:15 Wednesday morning and I have it in my hands ready to install
Thanks Dave, looks great.
USPS comes through on that one. Glad you like the box!
Everything worked out great. Post office came through and the Install was super easy. Probably took about 15 min. Drilled the bottom brackets on the rack, attached hanger on top then drilled through the bracket holes through the box mounting tab at the bottom of the box. Box seems really stout, looks great, and I thought the price was very fair.
I have had one of these on my bike for about 10k now it is proving to be bomb proof! Well worth the price!
Really looking great, have been thinking of getting one of those bags for a long time now!
I just got myself a new GS Adventure, and wanted to ask you, if you have any idea if your box could fit on the racks for Touratech Zega Pro cases as well? Or if you could consider to make one that fits...I would gladly pay for it!
/Henrik, Sweden :-D
I have a box on zega panniers, it's a bit of an experiment. if you're handy and can make up a simple strap bracket for the rear, it'll work, I don't have a box to fit it with. I can send you photos and details but I'm away from the shop at the overland expo in arizona, I can send you more details in a week when I get home
please send me email with your email address and I'll send email direct. thanks'
Now, I'm painting some boxes black with DupliColor bedliner paint. Makes a nice looking box. Add $10, or buy the paint and do it yourself. I think it's a nice look.
Nicely made, and a great addition to my bike!
In a couple of cases, the conduit hook bracket used for the top mount has opened up, it's mild steel and not up to the task.
If anyone has bought a box, email me and I'll send you two stainless steel Adel clamps to replace the metal hook on top and add another bracket on the forward side.
I emailed Dave this past Monday with some questions, and he replied quickly and professionally.
I ordered mine on Monday, he shipped it Tuesday, and USPS delivered it today.
The box looks great, and I can't wait to get out of work today to go home and install it.
I just love great customer service, and great hand-made-in-America farkles that actually add something useful to my bike.
Any troubles ever, getting the Duplicolor bedliner to dry and not stay soft?
Tried some on a skid plate, seems it never drys!
Any tips appreciated.
I think the trick is to avoid a thick coat. I put a few thin coats on and it seems ok, dry to the touch, doesn't scrape off. But until we get some miles and dirt involved, it's a bit of an experiment. The guy who started this trend has had good results, I don't claim this as my idea, just copied his paint choice...
Received my box in record time...Installed with no issues..works Great !!!! very good product.... Thanks Dave!
Glad you like it, that's what makes building these toolboxes worth doing.
For a great product. Installed mine a little over a month and 2600 miles ago. Works GREAT!
