I'd buy one in a heartbeat. It basically has a built in top rack too!

What is the thickness of the tubing and what is the measurement of from top to bottom of the loop where the boxes mount?
Yeppers...... I did..... It`s made from 1/2 inch SS tubing..... All it took was a tube bender...... A entry level mig....can of argon......and ehh.... Espresso.
The tubing was abou $65 at http://www.onlinemetals.com/merchant...d=19&top_cat=1
The height on the loop is 8"....length is 12".... But you can off course make it to suit your needs. Yep....top rack ,was the biggest reson I did this.... My fam only has one minivan.... Guess who drives it??? So all I gotta do is on two wheels.... So I had to make a utility rack.....

Your right.... When you take a step back...it`s not that bad.... Except for the pink...


Made a jig for the setup. That will make it easier when you lay down the composites......


All ready for the Kevlar tomorrow......


Until then... I`l sip a few shots of espresso....

Personally, I would use the space to the inside of the boxes - especially on the right pannier - there's a lot of wasted space on both and because of the material you are using you should be able to make what ever shape you would like. I can see a "wart" on the right side made for infrequent use items like a tire repair kit and tools. I might have missed it, but how may liters are these shapes at this moment?

As with any design I make.... I always leave room for the future...... These will be the basic boxes...... After I make them....Including the lid...hinges and locks..... Then it is easier to absorb and decipher how to proceed. Indeed there are a lot of space...... And perhaps it will be used. I don`t have a clue as to the volume..... But at 36x37x20cm=26.64 liters... take a few away for the angles.... perhaps...22-23 liters...each....

Bad news........ Went to cut the Kevlar for tomorrow`s jigger.... and only had 2.2oz..... I thought that was a 6`ish oz roll..... Darn..... 2.2 oz plain is a type Kevlar 49....which is great....but I prefer the thicker 6 oz when trying to conform...... It flexes ( weave pattern...not the Kevlar itself) and I would have to lay down 3 times as many layers...... I`l have to order it in the am....which means.....nothing for a week or so...... Sorry.....
