As some of the regular readers may have noted, a small black box has appeared on the front lower section frame of the Suzuki. This was an experiment to provide storage for the heavy chain breaker and rivet tool and also to improve front protection. I also sought to keep costs down as an alloy box would cost close to $200.00 with no guarantee of a neat fit and certainly not watertight.
The experiment was successful but there was room for improvement. By using a dremel, belt sander some M4 bolts and nuts, I have been able to make the box smaller, stronger and mount higher with better clearance. Total cost to date $20.00. There was an investment in time but that would have still been required with the $200 alloy solution anyhow.
