My new cheap tool box

Mounted this old 50 call ammo can to the luggage rack today. Used a scrap piece of 1/4" aluminum plate as a base with 4 holes in it to mount onto the rack and another 4 holes through it and the bottom of the can. Bolts and flat washers with a dab of RTV to seal the bolt holes in the can and this thing works great. Not real big, but it holds my extra tools, flashlight, etc. and it cost me virtually nothing at all.

Never pick a fight with an old man.. If he's too old to fight, he'll just kill you..

What tires are you running? I just put a Shinko 700 on rear. The tread looks similar
