I too love hard cases on bikes for their better functionality. But I guess on the Bonnies the soft luggages look nicer (like how it was back in the day). Anyways, since you are on T-rat, I guess you may have already seen this old discussion & pics on the links below:

I wanted something cheaper than Hepco Becker and i tried the soft bags for a while. When I found them inadequate I simply u-bolted Pelican 1430 cases onto the soft bag rails from Triumph.



Those Pelicans are the ones that open from the top, not the briefcase styled ones. Waterproof lockable and not at all fancy they cost $65 each. They hold enough, with my topcase for a weeks worth of mountain riding, don't stick out too far and I can remove them and the rails together simply by unbolting the rails, two nuts each side...


The top case is an Emgo, at $90 more spacious than it looks
and impossible to lock your keys inside.

Hey thats a pretty slick set up.
So I did some fast calculations. And for what Id like on my bonnie with Hepco kit is 1250$ with out tax and shipping (brackets and Alu standard boxes)
So basically 1000$ over budget!
I do like your set up as I can still use my throw over saddlebags for around town stuff and use the 1430 top loaders for touring/camping..
Hmm

Where did you get top-loading Pelicans for $65?

I just got a set of side-opening Duratool cases for $30/ea. If I have time this weekend I'll put them on the Scrambler (using the Happy-trail aluminum attaching kit, $50.)

With the Bonnie or T100 you have a large number of options for the pannier frames but with the Scrambler the only factory built solution I've seen is the Metal Mule setup which is ridiculously expensive. Fortunately for me I found someone here who had a set they wanted to sell.

Still expensive but not the $850 I would have had to pay for a new set (yes, that's $850 US, just for the rack - no panniers!)

i used a set of soft bag rails from ebay seller LOSI3030 (theyre about 70 bucks)

i made a rear support brace connecting them, and added some plate to bolt the seahorse se720 cases to it.

it works well, and all told im in it less than 250 bucks including powdercoat and stainless hardware

H+B Junior bags are on Ebay regularly for half of retail.

Sometimes you can even get a deal on racks.

You should be able to stay on budget if you buy (at least the bags) used.

I'd be a little suspect of putting much weight into a bag mounted to what is supposed to be a soft luggage stay.

There's a reason quality racks are not cheap. They are robust, and engineered to carry a reasonable load. I've seen the H+B setup on a new bonnie, it is very well done, and the resulting look with the black cases is as close to period correct as you'll find.

IMO, pelican cases on a street bike are like a plywood spoiler on a porsche. As always, YMMV.

There's a guy on the triumphrat.net forum classifieds selling a complete hepco Becker setup for like 600. Racks and junior bags. Only on the bike for a month, won't clear the arrow exhaust.
