DIY lightweight saddlebag racks
Permalink  
 


Hello.I have an upcoming 3 days ride in the mountains in june.I had some oxford saddlebags from when i was touring with my tl1000r.I decided to build some racks to be able to mount them on the ttr.I used 5mm ss rod.I could believe how strong it is.I will be incorporating a place behind the right rack to mount a 2litre aux fuel tank.I'm crap at welding but it holds 100%.Not finished yet.I will upload more pics as i progress.

Better put the fuel behind the left rack or it might get a bit warm

I've made little progress.I made the frame to hold the aux fuel tank.Stick welding is crap,makes a lot of splatter and i'm a crap welder.I need to get me a tig welder in the future.Next i have to make the supports to bolt them to the bike.
