Pannier mounting.....

Mine simply hang with 90deg brackets.... then small clamps with a wing nut inside just to keep them from shifting. .... the same thing could easily be done with the fold out 1200 racks. Just weld a 90 to hang on the top and a small "C" to the bottom of the box to hold it from shifting forward or back.......Ganbatte!

OK,... I got it figured out finally,.. I had to retrace my steps so here's what I came up with:
Materials:
RACKS
10' steel tube (thick wall)
3ft 3/16' angle steel
2 cans hammer black paint
4-8mm bolts
2-5/16' bolts
stainless steel wing nuts, and washers and lock washers
Materials: $ 53.80
Labor: $ 148.00 ( 4hrs @ 37/hr)
Total (racks):.....$ 201.80
AMMO BOXES
2 ammo boxes (17" L X 8'W X 14 1/2" H)
2 cans Blk hammer paint
1 Clear coat
Materials: $ 85.00
Labor:......$ 74.00 (2 hrs @ 37/hr)
Total (boxes)...$ 159.00
**
TOTAL PACKAGE (boxes and racks).........$ 360.80 (shipping is extra if applicable).

I think you are up in the mountains so I could probably just meet you and save you the shipping. I could also give them to you unpainted if you like and you could save some money there as well.
If you want anything else built custom, just let me know, tail racks , GPS mount,..whatever.....

Thanks for reply!
The 1200 GSA rack on the left seems like it would be the challenge, as that rack bends around the muffler...

...and I have no welding tools/ability ;>

Hi,.... too bad you're so far away!... it's really not a problem to cut out 2 parallel lines how to create a rectangular hole..... say about 5 inches wide... then cut a piece of sheet metal that's about 7 inches wide and the length of the rectangle, then push it into the slot and weld each side... don't underestimate yourself, you could do all of the prep work cut the slot and then the material, then just go to a welding shop and have them weld what you tell them to. You will have already done the hard part... so it shouldn't be very expensive.
