I have been wondering the same thing! http://waldsports.com/index.cfm/wald...ingbasket.html
Probably cheaper at Niagaracycle. I think you get 2 in a set.

You could get some All Thread, bend it in a couple places , and run it through 4 drilled holes in the friction drive channel, for a place to hook panniers. Then use a conduit bracket or something to tie the rack to the seat stay. Good luck! Send pics!

I bet they will be noisy, but if the drive doesn't flex a lot, it should work fine, opposite the engine and gas. I think you might have to reinforce the drive channel though (some cross bolts and nuts inside and outside the box). I drilled through mine to mount that little plastic bin for the reflector tape and spares. The metal was fairly easy to cut through, and didn't flake any, but it was pretty stout.

Adding extra nuts on the u-bracket bolts helped me a lot too. (bolt through bracket, nut, then mounting plate, washer, lock washer, nut, nut. )

Didn't get a round tuit today, but I eyeballed the chain alignment... it actually doesn't look bad so as to throw the chain.
The rag joint does have a warble though. gotta fix that.
VERY nice Kalifornia day, today.

kings has clamshell mounts, and a forum member Sgt. Howard sells US-made heavy duty 3pc clamshells that take the Grubee cogs. I got one and it's thick!

After many chain jumping issues previously, I bought this chain alignment tool:

Resoldered the ground on my mag, which resolved my issue of my engine not running, and promptly took her for a short jaunt considering she had been out of commission for about two weeks, between that and the installation of my shift kit.

I also applied a thread locker to jackshaft screws, and some silicone between my carb and intake pipe (had to re apply it for air leaks because I had to take my carb off for getting the jack shaft on).

Tomorrow, I may start assembly of the x chamber... if I have time. I owe my girlfriend a date. Oh well, its supposed to be cold and windy yet again tomorrow. Not my favorite riding weather.

Took the bike up to the old house up the road today and got a pic. Jetted down to #68 and haven't noticed a real dramatic difference maybe a little less 4-stroking at WOT. Re-mounted the light but still not happy with the bracket so I have to fabricate another one.

I trued my front wheel, replaced the rim tape with Gorilla Tape, my favorite, and soldered the wires back onto my speedo computer. They got yanked out the other day. I figured it was worth a try, and it seems to work ok.

I removed the exhaust that I made for it and took it over to FSI to have it Jet Hot coated.
2 Fridays from now I will get it back. Until then she sits... waiting...

What is 'JetHot' coating?
Sounds good!

HCS... I kinda like that schwinn avenue bike.
Where can I get a bargain deal on those fancy wheels in the following pics?
I'd like to try them one day. :-)
