My thoughts... Hmm.... How about you suck because you have a CNC machine available and I don't.

The rack looks AWESOME!

I agree with G on the brown leather bag.  That old bag just looks out of place.

As far as being QR, it basically is.  I mean how long does it tak to remove 4 bolts.   I have 4 bolts holding my Yamaha fender rack and can switch between it and a passenger seat in less than 5 minutes.

    May I suggest that you drop the overall height of the backrest/support with the wolf/moon on it a few inches. It looks out of place sans the bag and with the bag you don't really see it anyway so you won't be missing anything. 3-5in will do it I'm guessing.

    I think both bags are right on...goes with the look of the Bike.. sorta rustic. Luggage Rack is awesome as well, leave it the way it is......JMO :thumbs:

    Well, yeah. As long has he travels around with a 17mm socket wrench  ;D...which isn't a bad idea, actually.  :thinking:
    Sometimes it's a little better to travel than to arrive.

    I carry a 17mm open end wrench (along with other sizes).  But I'm guessing he's only going to remove it at home or someplace he's staying for a period of time since he'll need a place to store it when removed.

    When I went to WARR, I loaded up on spare parts and tools.

    If we were voting, I'd agree ... they go along with the looks of the bike

    Man, in my fantasy world we all live within 100 miles of each other and can get together to "help" each other with builds and mods. I for one would be happy to drink beer and offer suggestions while watching Wolf work on his build.  ;D  :givemebeer:

    He'd probably be drinking Wolf's beer on top of it.


    I wished I had anybody around to work on bikes with me. Maybe I'd get more motivated about my bobber project. I'd even provide the beer.

    I did put PHX on my "dream sheet". You know I'm always down to break stuff. But, I'm not holding my breath.

    That is a nice rack.  Gosh, never thought I would say that to a guy.
