    Hate when that happens.

    Hi, The trunk is removable. It is my daily driver so the extra carry space comes in very handy. I can post a picture of the mounts if you want

    You know...the more "I" look at this pic, the more I have to say- why change it? It has the rear wheel sticking out in cafe style...the tank looks elongated even though it isn't and you'd still have enough room to move around on with a single seat platform {we never readjust while riding - do we...I do}.
    She's your canvas, but I'd leave her as is...but add homemade rear sets and put the battery in the tail so it's open. My two cents for what lil it's worth...

    After kicking around a lot of ideas including clips and magnets I went with the push to fasten "Velcro" type stuff. Not hook and loop but the stuff that really holds well where each side is the same....look like little pin heads that interlock. Put a spacer where the grommet mounted to extend out to the side cover. So far holds really well.
