Inexpensive 2 helmet top box... < $70
Written by akienm on 11/1/2011 at 08:44 pm

Oh, and I had to make an adapter to make the plate for this fit on the
rack. Apparently it's some kind of scooter style plate, at least that's
what I've been told. I've also been told the rack came set for a Givi
motorcycle plate.

This was not a big deal for me... When docpolycarp posted about his L
bracket "rack", he used a plastic cutting board... I did the same with a
bit of plywood. Screws from the plate into the plywood, and some bracket
things hold the plywood on the rack. Works very well.

If I remember to do it in the next few days, I'll post a pic. I really
should paint the plywood at some point.

      Similar, but not the same. Probably similar quality, but I haven't tried that one. The ebay one has free shipping to most of the continental US, so it's slightly cheaper than the JCW one. The JCW one is *smaller*, and wouldn't have
