I've been looking at that space on my bike, thinking of making a box to fit in there, and now I see that somebody has already done it!

One more potential clearance issue: the charcoal canister protrudes into that space on my bike, and I don't think European bikes have that stupid thing, so I wonder if that was considered in the design of this box?
My bike is an 1150, so if the canister has moved elsewhere on the 1200, that's a moot point, as it also is if you do a canisterectomy!

Thanks to the OP for posting this.

Youtube review of the twalcom radibox:

I don't speak his language but you get the idea of the box dimensions and it's construction.

Ok that is a nice tool box. Here is a not as nice but put the 180 dollars to beer and you will be even. They are made out of 3 inch sewer pipe. The caps have 1/4 in birch plywood glue inside for support and the the pulls are just you run of the mill cabinet pulls.


Right now i have them attached with a couple of straps and a gear clamp. They stay nice and stead (so far) but am working on better attachment.





All in all i have about 15 buck into these. i used gorillia glue to hold one end cap on and the plywood in the caps.

Small one has 3/8 socket wrench 3 tire irons hand pump pug tools torx allen keys and a few other i cannot think of yet.

Bottom has sockets. torx sockets, multimeter, patch kit, spare bulbs tye wraps, spare nuts and bolts plus a few other odds n sods

something tells me its not the twalcom because the locks are in two different places on the back panel/door. But then again that may be the difference between the US/EU versions. I LOVE the original post though!

2712, if you are refering to the box on my bike, i made it myself. I thought those other boxes were expensive for what they were, so i made my own.

TXjames, yes there is that factor that i need a 4mm allen key to open it. I was going to fit it with a lock rather than the bolts, but it was going to be a bit more difficult and would likely not be as waterproof. So to make it simple i just used the 6 M5 cap head bolts, which still makes it sort of secure. I don't think many people would set on with the allen key to get the contents. I'm happy with it, and it waterproof.
In the box i keep the tools that i don't need as often, other spanners, sockets etc etc as well as a set of jump leads. Under my seat i have a tyre compressor, and the original bike tool kit that i've added one or two bits to, including a 4mm allen key to open this box plus to undo the strap that holds my puncture repair stuff where the US bikes have the charcoal canister.
My thought that if its only a quick and easy job, the tools under the seat will do, but if it is something else and i need the other tools, they're there, and i'm not worried about having to remove 6 bolts.
Also, it is made from 2mm stainless steel. The front which is drilled and tapped is 3mm, then there is a poly type gasket and the door is also 2mm stainless.

Does the job for me, now i keep pretty much all my basic required tools, tyre compressor and puncture gear on the bike all the time, so i don't have to worry about not having them with me.
Just wanted to share my version.

Thanks.
Oliver.

It gives it a fuel cell look, it might keep prying hands out of there...
