    I made a top box and tool box for my ’12 GSA. I made a few extras and thought I’d offer them to fellow inmates. Please ask any questions you might have either on this thread or PM. Let me know if more pictures are needed. Thanks for looking.

    Now making custom pillion seat boxes! See post #60.

    Top Boxes
    I have two for sale. Please note I’m selling the boxes only. There is no mounting system with either box. Since I only use a top box for overnight and extended trips, the box is bolted to a plate using four ¼” fasteners.

    Tall Top Box
    This top box is made from 2mm (.080”) aluminum, has all welded seams, lockable with two keys and is weatherproof. This one is painted black. (This one is sold but I can make more.)
    Size: 42L
    Length = 14”, Width = 14”, Height = 13”

    Short Top Box
    This top box is made from 2mm (.080”) aluminum, has all welded seams, lockable with two keys and is weatherproof. Finish is bare aluminum.
    Size: 32L
    Length = 14”, Width = 14”, Height = 10”

    Tool Boxes
    I have four tool boxes with two different designs for sale. These tool boxes are made to fit GSAs from 06 – 13 with BMW OEM racks. They should also fit the water cooled GSAs with BMW OEM racks (opposite side), but I have not verified this. I will supply mounting hardware, but keep in mind there are multiple ways to install these tool boxes.


    Tool Box (Side Opening)
    I have three of these for sale. They are made from 2mm (.080”) aluminum, have all welded seams, lockable with two keys and are weatherproof. Finish is bare aluminum. These tool boxes do not require the removal of the rear fender.
    Length = 11”, Width = 8”, Depth = 2 1/4”

    Tool Box (Rear Opening) - used - (Sold)
    I have one of these for sale. I used the tool box this past summer on the MABDR. It worked great and never leaked with daily rain. It is made from 2mm (.080”) aluminum, has all welded seams, lockable with two keys and is weatherproof. Finish is bare aluminum. I did not remove my rear fender, but if you regularly bottom out the rear suspension on your GS(A), interference with the rear fender is possible.
    Length = 10”, Width = 4”, Height = 7”

    I had requested OP delay shipping until after the holidays, and he did. I got the toolbox this weekend. Nice work. Every bit as good as the "pro vendor" offerings. I'll mount it up this week

    It is honestly better than I expected. I might have to bribe OP into making me some rugged panniers and a top box...

    Would the OP be interested in making a custom top box?

    Hi Jamm,
    I can, and would be happy to do that, but I'd need to know what you are looking for. Can you send me a few details?

    Feel free to PM if that is better for you.

    Thanks,
