Photos - Cheap Givi mount/ luggage rack
Written by docpolycarp on 7/4/2011 at 05:31 pm

I used two 10inch x 1 1/4 inch corner brackets as a luggage rack,
attached to the passenger backrest posts, to mount a Givi mounting plate
on my '89 PC800.

I posted photos at
I used the Givi E200 mounting plate for a Honda TransAlp because I liked
the shape of it, it was cheaper than the Givi E250 Universal Mounting
Plate and much more heavy duty. I used a cheap polypropylene cutting
board from Wal-Mart to attach the Givi plate to the corner brackets. If
I had used the Givi E250 Universal Mounting Plate it could have attached
directly to the corner braces without any need for the polypropylene
cutting board.

Given some concerns expressed here on ipcrc about the possible failure
of the backrest welds given the weight of a Givi case and luggage rack,
I mounted the rack just above the PC800 duckbill and used part of the
extra cutting board as a contact point on the PC800 trunk. It just
barely touches the trunk lid when loaded.

I found the Givi E52 case on Craigslist for $75. The corner supports
were $9 each, and I used good stainless hardware to assemble everything,
which added a couple more dollars. The Givi E200 mounting plate was $45.
