Whats better than a topbox?




Two top boxes..

The frame is all flatbar, some of it welded together, but really theres no reason why it couldn't be done all with bolts and carefull bending in a vice. A power saw and a pillar drill make it less hard work than a hacksaw an a drill.

The (top) top box is fiberglass so weighs almost nothing, its empty till i get to uni and then its where i stash my elmit.

The tube has either spare petrol or oil, or waterproofs.

Cost:
6 for the steel box (which has been laying arround for a couple of years)
2.50ish for the amount of flat bar used.
2 nuts and bolts
2 lock and hasp
Had the topbox on my last 3bikes and the tube was free.

Wouldn't take long to add brackets for panniers after this, but being a 125 its going to struggle as it is when its loaded up!

Doesn't seem to have affected the aerodynamics
