Nooooooo! I can't attach the top box to the rack. Whatever they sent me doesn't work. It took me a few minutes to see that the rack pictured on the instructions was different from my rack. My guess is the top box mounts fit the previous Super Cub model.

I have emailed Webike. Let's see what happens. I hope they have a solution for me.

It's the 'everyday bike' look, 'workhorse' look, 'practical and functional', it's the Japanese postwar principal, make use of whatever minimal resources they have left after getting bombed back to the stone age.

Going back and forth with Webike about the top boxes. Having a bit of hard time. Because I bought mine outside Japan, they are trying to tell me that the parts I bought only fit the Japanese model. Thing is, from the Japanese website you can clearly see the rear rack is the same. The Honda Japan web site also says that there's additional mounting gear needed for the said top boxes. Something I pointed. Waiting on an answer.

I have a milk crate on my XT225. So you bought the bikes, had them registered in Mexico, brought them here, and are riding them here with Mexican plates? Wouldn't they have to be registered to a Mexican citizen? And how do you insure bikes registered in Mexico in the U.S.? I have friends here who have relatives who are Mexican citizens. I seriously considered buying a new VW bug in Mexico, registering it to them, and letting them drive it across the border. But I couldn't figure out what to do after that.

Yes to both! It's amazing what you can do when you can't go online to your favorite place!

I did find a way to attach the top boxes. I have to say, the Japanese manual made it hard for me but I finally got it. Webike was trying to be helpful but I guess they didn't understand (since they all speak Japanese and all). They even contacted Honda and Honda didn't give instructions but said it should fit. If it didn't fit that's because I had a different Super Cub model which they couldn't figure out either (because there are no different Super Cub models!). It's all good now!

A few pics showing the top boxes. I think they look great.
