panniers-hard bags
« on: June 06, 2011, 01:47:46 AM »
Thanks to scooterbob on all the help for the modified enfield panniers. But, I gotta do it my way. I'm going to make my own. Adventure in fabricating begins today. Figured some old ammo cans to start. Ruled out 20MM and 40MM grenade boxes too big. While at a surplus show today found two pristine 60mm mortar boxes. 12LX6wX16d. Going to start brackets tomorrow. I hope to post progress pics as I go along. As a side note. After a road trip the other day my tool kit now includes two adjustable wrenches and loctite. ;D

I made these carriers for my ammo cans.  http://www.enfieldmotorcycles.com/forum/index.php?action=gallery;sa=view;id=3001. Just to give you some ideas,  these baskets were designed so you can pull the can out of the top,  and so that you can open them in llace on the bike.  They are made out of eighth inch by one inch steel strapping.   I have to make these again since the vibrated the welds apart and one of them apart while I was riding.  When I do it again they will be made from more continuous pieces instead of many little pieces. 

Good luck, have fun.  Take pictures and do a write up of the process if you can.

nice set up on those boxes. 60% of brackets done. Will attempt to post pics. They will be a 3 bolt system for on and off. Finding paint was the hardest. Krylon Lt. forest green camo. Plus they have clear coat in FLAT. Back to sanding.

COOL !! I can't wait for the pics.

 I have found two darn close matches for my '06 Military,both in rattle cans;
Krylon fusion Camouflage #4293, Ultra Flat, SKU245044293 and
Rust-Oleum Camouflage #1919 Deep Forrest Green, SKU 200619198

I can break it better,,,,at night, in the rain, on the trail,, 20 miles from nowhere.

Switched to krylon camo olive. Tried it on a couple of parts. Damn close. Waiting for star decals for sides of boxes. She goes in this week for first service (official) I did the oil myself at 300 miles. At 500 now.

Bags on. Bolt holes in boxes sealed with silicone. SS bolts. Three bolts to remove if wanted. Rear bracket is attached via a shaft collar. Same type used to stop pneumatic and hydraulic cylinders. Lots of nylon lock nuts and loctite(red). Went to Walmart (Wally world here). Filled bags with stuff and rode. ;D ;D

Thanks ;D On my ride today I stopped for a drink. When I went back to my bike. A couple of people taking pictures. This isn't the only time it has happened. By the way the drink was iced coffee. Mmm Dunkin Donuts. ;)

WOW!
Nice work! Following the KISS principle gives such excellent results!

Congrats on a very fine mod!  ;D

KR,   Did you consider 30mm cans?  I am just asking since I hope to fabricate something similar for my bike.  If you don't mind me asking about how lond did it take in total?  Thanks for the mention of the clear in flat, didn't know they made that.

Hello All,
Awesome job, I want those too for storage. 
I can find a rain storm, If it rains for three minutes a day once a year, I will get caught in it. I am just that lucky.
Several more pictures please, WITH a ruler that can be read in the photos, please. I would like a better shot at making that myself. Length and type and size of bolts and nuts please.
I have to turn you guys onto NORDLOCK WASHERS, they work well.

Sorry haven't been on in a while. Life things. The Green Goddess could have been painted if I found someone to do it. Moved to Kansas and will be riding here. Thanks for the compliments.

Fantastic job! What is a shaft collar and where did you find them?
