Converting back seat in a Top Case Mounting.

Recommended Posts

felipejd
Hello everyone, having all good tracks?
 
Look, I want to use the back seat engage/hooking system to put my top case. I want something like the sw-motech "seat-rack".
 
seat-rack
 

But first, I want to ask if anyone has experience with this, is there any other better, cheaper?. Anyone is selling one of this used?.
 
Thanks to all !!
 
have nice rides!

If I understand your question correctly, you want to attach your bag using the stock rear seat hooking system. Doesn't seem that difficult to me.
 
At least two ways to go, off hand: 1) use a stock seat base for your starting point and build enough of a riser to attached the bag and VIOLA! What you make the riser out of depends on your skill and stock available. I'd mold one out of fiberglass, probably using a small Tupperware-like container for a mold. MANY sizes and shapes are available from which to choose. I've done this for a number of things and the Tupperware works nicely because you don't need to mess with mold-release agents. The finished product just "pops" out with a twist. 2) you can make your own base-plate using an original one as a guide. I'd do so out of aluminum stock and build from there, much like with the above (fiberglass) since one would want the base to end up being water-tight. Otherwise, a simple aluminum stand could be attached to the aluminum base and the bag-of-choice attached to that. Just some thoughts... all the best.

Try this. 
Got it installed yesterday, which was super easy -- it just straps around the rear seat.  Haven't had a chance to use it yet and probably won't until Tuesday, but it seems like it has plenty of space for what I intend to use it for, which is a pair of shoes, some hand tools, a soldering kit, and crimp tools.  (I do commercial AV integration)
 
It expands too and has a rain cover, so far it seems like really good build quality.

Weird, that doesn't work either but I found it anyway and this should work for others. That's a popular bag, btw.

I just kind of shoved the rain cover in, it folds down pretty small and doesn't take a lot of room when done right(unlike in this picture):

I ended up buying a second seat and permanently affixing my Nelson bag to it for easy swapping. I removed the seat cover/foam and mounted the bag to it using some bolts and existing holes in the seat pan. I also sandwiched a piece of plexiglass and some rubber drawer matting on the inside bottom of the bag for rigidity. I just wish I had black matting instead of beige...but I'm the only one who ever sees it.

That's a great idea, how much did the extra seat cost?
