I actually started this build in August, but I never really thought about posing it here, but I did take pictures. I'll be covering things that are not a straight bolt on and need some type of modification. Here's what I will be covering: - Installation of Saddlebags - Installation of new suspension - Installation of a real front fender - Installation of hand guards - Bigger fuel tank (160 miles is just too short) - Anything else that comes along that I want to add. So after riding my Scrambler a bit, I find that I have no interest in riding my 14 R1200GS. To me, it's the preferred mode of travel. I've added a Sargent Seat and I have a windshield that I am working with and it seems to be working out. The only thing that is lacking is the bags. As a winter project I decided that I was going to take a rear subframe from an Oilhead R1200GS and splice it so I could have a frame to mount bags on the bike. But because I removed the forks to have the Wilbers guts put in them, and it's going to take a couple of weeks to get them back, well, you know what they say about idle hands... Since I had most of the parts handy, I figured Why Not? and I started working on it. The major parts needed are a R1200GS Rear Subframe, an RnineT rear frame and saddlebags. Lets begin! First, here's the Donor RnineT Frame. Say hello. It won't look like this for long. After a couple of cuts it's what I need. And then on the bike. Now it's time for the R1200GS frame. I am going to make initial cuts, and then reduce from there. It's important to remember to tie down anything that you want to cut. It keeps it study. First cut. Making the second cut. Now adding the bag mounts to the frame. Here's the bike without any frame on the back. The exhaust is from an R1200GS and is made by Hattech in Germany. He does really nice work. This exhaust has a very narrow profile that allows the bag to be close. You'll see it in later pics. Here it is with the frame set on the bike. I am just positioning it for fitment right now. After this I ended up adjusting the bags for a bit and and finally got them to where I like them. The bags are Micatech V-Pilots. They are incredible bags and they work well. It's important to note that R1200GS Frame needs to be a 17 degree angle. That is what it is on the R1200GS. Right now they are held in position with zip ties until my welder friend can get here to tack it up.
