Racks seem to be the hard part; have you considered adapting a common panier frame? Hepco Becker used to make one for the R75/6. Don't honestly know if you could find one and it would fit the /5 but it's the closest I know that would support Pelican cases.

I have Pelicans on an F650; they use http://cariboucases.com/Do-It-Yourself-Kits as attachment hardware. Top notch stuff...crashed a few times offroad with them, no ill effects. They make Pelican mounts to SW Motech, Hepco Becker, Givi, and their own custom mounts (which are square 1/2" square steel IIRC...)

Edit: https://store.bobsbmw.com/product/he...-set-1970-1973 Should fit, and the pelican adapters from Caribou will get you home.

The stock/BMW/Krauser/H&B mounts have their hoopsor loop main sections inboard of the shocks. That is so they will allow the fitment of the unique feature specific inboard surfaces of the cases.

The key to allowing a larger range of cases or panniers to these machines if to have the mounts designed such that the hoops are further outward or away from the F-R centerline. That allows flat back panniers to be more user friendly attached to the mounts.
