I remember the thread!

Are you saying that bike is gone?

Or is that your ST with a modified exhaust - and is that a shock remote reservoir on the left side?

Yes, the strange rear shocker ... which is in need of a rebuild ! I still have her, I occasionally think of buying a lighter bike as i like riding just dirt roads , not offroad any more.

I've had a few meals served from that type of food-can. I want to think they were called 'mermite' cans or something like that. They had walls about an inch thick, the aluminium outside and some sort of insulation inside. Three lidded metal containers fit inside, with some space left over for hot water to keep the whole works warm. The lids had a big triangular-cross-section rubber seal, and once the lids are latched shut the food would stay warm for HOURS.

This is not the first time I've heard of them being used as motorbike side-cases. Great idea, especially since you can get them for CHEEP.

I stripped out all the inside material, liner and insulation . A messy job but a wire brush on an angle grinder ripped it off pretty easily. I kept the insulation in the lid as it keeps it stiff and gives a nice flat stainless work surface. it was a bit of fun finding a new seal for the top but eventually I found a window seal that fits really well.

I made the mountings based on some of the commercial versions all out of steel and 1/2" HDPE. About $120 all up if I remember all the costs .

But the question on everyone's mind is: Do you turn around to admire it before walking away? ;)
