PostSubject: Cargo fastening system for the SilverWing   Wed 31 Dec 2008, 18:58

Hi All,
When I first bought my Swing in August, I made plans to go camping or head out on a long road trip. I noticed that getting all my camping gear attached to my new scooter was just about impossible. Their was no positive attaching points for bungee cords.
I put on my thinking cap and came up with this fastening system:









If you would like to have one of these for your SilverWing, let me know thru this forum. Laughing

Thank You and ride safe,

DennisB :D

Dennis......That's a pretty neat set-up. If I didn't already have a
Top Box I would be interested in one.

Dennis,

This might work as a stable mount for smaller flags. Kim and I ride with the Patriot guard and have been trying to come up with a flag mounting system.

You also have enough room in between the retaining pins to mount a brake light.

Hi Dale,
You have a inventive mind and that's a good thing. Well hear it is....this cargo mounting system was designed to have all the holding force to be pulled from the top and not pulled to the bottom. A person can pull up on it all day and it will not give way. You might be abel to put a piece over the spoiler top and attach it to the removable end pieces. Now that would work. I do like the extra brake light idea, now that's some good thinking. sunny

Dennis :D

P.S. This mount would work great with small flags.

High Dale,
I will design a flag mount for you and post some pictures when I get it done. There will be a test period needed for this design. I was going to use two 8" x 12" American flags in this design.

This is for all those that want to fly Old Glory off the back of their scooters. This will look good.

Thank You...Dennis

This cargo attaching system works great for securing just about anything to the back seat area of the SilverWing.

Any questions....please ask.

A few well placed nylon cable ties will work fairly well. These may be used to
anchor bungee hooks.

I do not trust nylon tie straps. They are great for holding wire cable assemblies to structure or frame. But that's it.

Be safe...not sorry!

Here's one solution for those of you with top boxes. They are kitchen door cabinet handles found on Ebay for a few dollars.

Well... This was not on my standard manufacturing item list. I have 2 more people interested in this system. When I get 4 more I will buy the parts to create this item again. Price would be $55.00 and you would need to purchase your own 1/4" eye bolts, Nuts, and bungee or compression straps. Shipping would be around $5.00 for the US and international shipping would need to be looked at.

There you go... If your interested let me know and I'll put your name on the list. sunny

Dennis,

I have to give you an A+ on creativity and design. I wish you were my neighbor!

Are you still making the electric adapter that will allow me to hook up a trailer wiring harness to the SW?

Dennis,

I will send you a PM regards to payment and shipping information. Can you share here where it connects? Or if you have posted pictures before, a link to that thread.

Thanks.
