Ammo cans as panniers

PostAuthor: Crazy_Russian » Fri Oct 27, 2017 5:01 pm

Long story short, over the next few months, ill be working on making a set of mounts and panniers for my 920r. After taking a closer look at several different options, i decided to get a pair of Tusk mounts for a KLR (scratch and dent sale) instead of fabricating everything from scratch on my own. they also came with a set of brackets for the panniers to mount to the hoops. which was a deal breaker for me.
This thread is mostly for others to get ideas if they want to do this on the cheaper end of things, and i will continue this as i make progress :-)

Those handles do come in handy for carrying the boxes around, when the boxes are taken off and are a good place to lock your helmet to, when you're walking around and visiting some place without the bike and to prevent the helmet from getting stolen and forcing you to bribe some policemen to have your helmet recovered from the black market...
