I've got an original run of these boxes and I've used them with the Sito. It was touching the boxes so I ended up with a big ripple in the aluminum. I don't recommend trying it. Anything with a wide opening at the very back isn't likely to work since the opening at the back is less that 3".

Those racks look a lot beefier than the ones that came with my Jesse's. The sheet metal split on mine in Guatemala and I had to ride home with ropes holding them on. I saved that cool GS logo that was cut into 'em though and bolted them onto my lids.

I have a set on my PD and love them. The directions for install were not enough for my skill level so swearing was involved. End of the day they look great. Thanks Al.

Still got some left....They just need to go into powdercoat, and get assembled.



A bunch of R80's have gone out the past month. Both G/S and ST. It's nice to know folks are still riding the old adventure bikes.

A correct rear plate in case you have the R80ST instead of the R80G/S.

Question Rear rack?

Does that attach to the rear luggage rack to provide a better platform?

It's made for the subframe support on the R80 mounts we make for our "old school" bags.
It replaces the GS plate.

Tricky rear support?

Howdy! I'm trying to install my new pretty, shiny boxes this weekend and have run into a little snag. The bike: 1990 R100GS. The problem: back fender/rear support interface. The horizontal bar does not seem wide enough...while I could probably wedge it on, it will rub the fender severely, which will hurt my motorcycle and probably make me cry.

A friend with a similar set up sent pics and his fender looks way shorter than mine, so I figure there are probably differing types out there. Is there a wider part available? I don't want to cry.

Thanks!
