Storage compartment lids and slip-hinge lids not currently available. I still need to fine-tune a few things and add some tooling to make it all happen. This was just a prototype to see if I could make it work.

I've got a buddy that just bought a WeeStrom and is wanting some racks... Are you building boxes too?

Your work looks nice!

Hotmamaandme 04-14-2013 08:36 AM

Long shot
 
Any way you can get a hold of a 1989 or 90 Honda Transalp and make some pannier racks? (finding racks for these old bikes is hard to say the least) Very nice work BTW and good luck on your venture.

FlyingPenguin 04-14-2013 08:51 AM

Nice work!

Well, I'm only doing one-off racks for locals. I don't see myself making jigs for all the different bikes at this time. Then, there are 2nd, 3rd, 4th gens, etc,etc...

I would have at least 50 jigs to make. In time I may start with the 2nd gen KLR650, and then move into the GS line, but that's still a ways off...

Hiya, Tim!

Looks like you've added a few toys to the stable since I last talked to you. Nice!

Yep!


Let me wrap this current job up, and I'll update the very first post on page one.

I've been having a bit of a time putting my prices together because I don't think I have built the same set of bags yet. :rofl

Give me about a week, and I should have post one up and running with all the details.

6USMC6 04-14-2013 12:18 PM

Lookin' good Kirk!

Desert Scoundrel 04-14-2013 10:09 PM

Just a tip on the TIG setup: Use 2% ceriated tungsten. It is almost impossible to contaminate the tungsten even when you "stall" the tungsten in the puddle. Not that I recommend doing that but if you accidentally do it, just pull back and keep going. The high frequency what little bit of contamination there was(black soot looking stuff) You'll never use another tungsten ever. It is not nearly as forgiving on stainless or steel. There, 10 cents worth of free advice.




I like the storage in the lids, innovative. What is a set of panniers running? Size is about 15x20 and say 10" wide.

And why not add a "tang" to the hinge pin so the lid will site level to be used as a table or such?

kirkster70 04-15-2013 04:01 AM

Thanks! Yeah, I use 2% ceriated as well, but I'm also using an inverter, so it's what works best with my machine anyway.

...updating post #1 with pricing now...
