Onboard aluminum tool box for 1200GS/A

Big Change-Update: Using a professional fabrication shop, the box is now welded, with a gasketed door, and mounted with stainless steel 2-bolt clamp on top. Also a little larger than original box. Sells for $199 plus $15 shipping in USA. Check out current boxes at www.advgear.net-

You'll have to drill a small hole in the two lower pannier mount tabs, other mounts just bolt in.

It is necessary to remove the crud catcher, it'll hit the box when the suspension compresses.

Photos further in this post may show the older, riveted version. The new welded one is cleaner, lighter and bigger.

Thumb Don't Need One, But

that's nice work.

Were you, perhaps, a Tinknocker in a shipyard in a previous incarnation?

Have you considered an adaptation for the Vario

an adaptation for the Vario system. I know the mouts are weird but is there another mounting point that would work?

The VARIO owners market seems to represent a significant opportunity if you can develop a solution!

Pillion Mounting

AdvDave I have a request to build one that will strap to the Pillion where the rear and front rack bolt on. Maybe simple fix idea to meet any style of rack design. What do you think? I'm willing to buy one if you want to give it a try. That might be perfect for both Vario, Micatech and Jesse. PM me if you want to try this out.

Also you might conceder some kind of splash fender under it that will keep all that spray away from the rider and the tools. Maybe it's too much but seems like a logical evolution of the tool box.

I really can see this as being the must have box of the year. Ya' need to name it. AdvDave Box or Adv Box or maybe iToolBox 2

I've got enough people wanting these things right now that I'll be busy for a while building the 'standard' box.

As for a name for the box, it was 'hobby' but it's turning into 'work'...but so far, going ok. I should have a few to mail the the first names on the list next week sometime. More aluminum is on order.
