    Assuming a lockable trunk so that the tools stay with the bike what would your ideal road kit be? I'm thinking a pump and spare tube are a must. What else should the well equipped cruiser carry :confused:

    When I rode motorcycles in another life I used to use master links to clip the cables and wires together. Some trips I had wires hanging out at the end of a run but nobody around me ever got towed home packin' their chain! I used to carry full socket sets and just about everything I would ever need in a leather saddle bag. On these Chinafire kits all I need is a few tools and maybe a spare engine kit if I make a long trip, still less weight than the ol' saddle bag.

    Here is what I carry. The first pic are the tools, the second is where I carry it, the third is my pump that I have mounted to look like a manual oil pump.

    Hopefully, it will be re-assembled this weekend. Then, plenty of pics.

    The seat was a bare seat with no upholstery I got off eBay for 12 or 15 bucks. I covered it with goat hide.

    Is a suweet ride Hough.

    The tool thing, above all else, an even carpy multi-tool pocket thing will get ya home. I have one bike I carry any thing I might need shy of tubes and a pump. (I R slow and should) But on the 4 smoker, Alls I carry is a wanna-be leatherman. For a 2 stroke ChinaGirl, need a ratcheting 10 mm, a box 10 mm, a bicycle all in one tool and a leatherman like devise.

    After maybe 50 rides without needing any tools I now carry a small adj. wrench and a small multi. screw driver which fit easily in a pocket.
