Please excuse the crappy pics and dirty bike I'm in the middle of several mods.

Ok so I wanted a solo bag that went with the look of my bike. I picked up an ammo box from a local store. Dry fitted it on my swing arm to mark my holes (did not drill into the swing arm). Also added a draw stryle lock to the lift handle

Made some brackets and also used the upper belt gaurd mount
Gave it a light sand and primed it with an enamel and all the mounting hardware. I also baked the enamel at 200 for 2 hours (removes paint thinner and hardens enamel). Then I used a flat black enamel (same process) and painted a biohazard symbol in a gloss black.

It turned out great. Oh I also lined the finished box with rubbed so ya shouldn't hear things rattle around. Let me know what you think

I have a custom plate that says "VIRUZ" and I work in a hospital and thats an easy paint job lol
Thanks guys, still a couple weeks before I can ride. I'll put up better pics once she can see daylight
Thanks Mike. I thought about doing full saddle bags but I don't need that much storage day to day and use a kuryakyn grantour bag for road trips. Those look great my ammo box is a lot smaller and more suited for a solo bag.

As far as the bracket goes I made it my self, pictures may be tricky but I'll come up with something. You can see in the pic under the box part of the bracket I used square aluminum tubing for that part so it has 'Floating' look
