BereIsland Posted May 21, 2006 Share Posted May 21, 2006 My previous R1150RT had city lids with leather bags attached to them, and I found them very useful and missed them when I got my new ride last year, well shortly after getting my bike I baptised it with a drop!! And had to replace one of the painted lids. This got me thinking, what I could do with the old lid, well after too much Guinness one night eureka. I got the saw to it and shaped a plywood panel to fill the hole. And covered the inside with black PVC Then I got my knife and sewing machine out and made a bag to fit to the outside Here it is fitted to the bike Here's a view from the rear And with the lid open The clever ones amongst you will be wondering what about the other side, good question, so I got on to ebay and won a pair of system cases but in the dark graphite colour, The trouble is they are in perfect condition and it seems a shame to cut one of them up, so if there is anyone of you with a damaged lid on this side of the pond and would like a free swap just let me know, I shan’t get my saw out for a couple of weeks.
