Do you have a front and rear pic of the Left and right side (top-loading) pelicans on the bike. I'm curious as to the width.
racks are as wide as passenger pegs down, cases add 1 1/2" to each side. the site specs say 11" wide, but that's due to the latches...the case is about 6" wide inside and wall is around 1/4. they can be tucked in tighter, but the lid open needs 2 1/2", so it's going to be a compromise.
>Where'd you get the racks?
I made them.
idea came from a Tim Remus photo of a TRW war bike.
metal came from Lowes and Home depot...maybe $30 or less in metal
>How do the Pelicans attach to the rack? Are they easy to remove and do they lock on?
the Pelicans are nicely waterproof, and I'm reluctant to alter that...they may get altered down the road, but while I'm building, they get strapped on. I like the Metal Mule attach system. I may do something like that.
>This is a great looking system from the side with pelican's on.
I'm not really into top-boxes though.
it's a nice smallish box for tools, spare tube and patch kit, heat controller, gloves, map. water bottle and such without bungies and everything on display for the lowlifes. as a toolbox alone, it makes for a nice selection.
that 11" isn't right on the site, it's more like 9" wide with latches.the site specs say 11" wide, but that's due to the latches...the case is about 6" wide inside and wall is around 1/4.
