Default Tool Bag Mounted on Fender

Well, did a search here on the forums and got a few great ideas. I ended up creating a bracket and mounted a large tool bag (12 inches long) and mounted it to the left side fender strut. Here are a few pictures of the bag and the bracket. Kind of overbuilt the bracket, would be alot nicer if I knew how to weld. But, overall I like it alot. It cost me about $10 bucks for the bracket and various nuts and bolts, plus $35 for the bag.

Thought I'd post this thread also in this forum since not much on the Boardwalk yet.

Let me know what you guys think.

Funny. Actually, I want to make a new bracket out of aluminum (using an aluminum ruler) and rounding off the edges. The paint on the bracket is flaking and everytime I try to wipe up around there to clean, it cuts my hand.

Stop into Lowes or HomeDepot. They ought to have the aluminum pieces you might like. Also you could stop by a place that sells steel, fabricaters/welders buy it from somebody. I usually just get it at Lowes, it is more convenient for me.

This is a GREAT idea! I am not a fan of side bags at all but I do desire to have some kind of storage for small items (sunglasses, hat, small groceries, etc). This is perfect and doesn't cramp my style.

Where did you get that bag?

just about all hardware stores sell aluminum in different withs and lengths.
The way you have it mounted now I think in time will fall off. Think off this when you put stuff in it the bag will start to sag and rip out at mounting holes. Make some L brackets that will bolt to fender rails and go under the bag to give it support.
