Anyone put a top case on their moped?

Howdy.

So I'm looking into storage options and am very interested in attaching a top box/storage to the rear rack of my Pacer. But the thing is the rack curves up at the end, like the attached photo. Anyone ever installed on and bypassed that issue?

Buy two army surplus side flap bags and lace the straps together in the hasps. Looks like panniers, hangs off of the rack and holds slot of stuff. Works great and looks awesome. The green with the orange.

Currently , I have the requisite milk crate on my FA50 which also has an angled rake to deal with .

I started with a lockable box and a piece of custom cut wood to keep it more level .

Ma Duece (.50 cal) ammo boxes one on each side. Lockable and sturdy. Yet another reason to thank the United States Army

Re: Anyone put a top case on their moped?

Thanks for the suggestions! I definitely want something that can store my helmet, which I don't think a saddle bag would do, Im pretty sure? But a good storage option for other things nonetheless.

Bumping for other people's examples for top cases?

Please don't do that. Top cases on mopeds are the reason people make fun of us

Have a bright white top case on the rear of the rack on the Torrot mini that is hard to not see.

Some basic maths on having one:

Fuks given for people laughing at it+(laughing at me)+(laughing at mopedders) = 0

When that thing is full of beer and niche porn, I bet you're the only one laughing, inside.

Ok I support all of these sentiments and that top case, but only because it's actually moped sized. It's the only one I've ever seen that was tasteful on a moped

You get a demon decal or a devil head on your Helmut if its badass enough no one touches the Helmut or the bike I put mine on the seat to keep the seat dry when it rains. If you have to carry stuff a backpack or a car is recommended this from a guy who drove 11 miles with a full size xylophone only dumping once.

Re: Anyone put a top case on their moped?

That top case has hauled a lot more stuff in various forms than I care to account for .

It's literally been a life saver .

And , I've only had comments of envy about that^ rig . Like : Hey , I need something like that . Or , I want one . Or ...

Anyway , It only mopeds ... Pretty much anything goes .

I figure if guys can strip every possible thing from a perfectly good stock unit , I can add utility .

Re: Anyone put a top case on their moped?

Sick. Yeah folks to be honest I don't mind the laughs. I love in NYC and travel often and everywhere. So i need a storage option to keep bags/helmets, etc. And a backpack each time won't cut it.

My bro rocks an ice chest with ratchet strap...

Keep in mind, folks be smashing open cheap top boxes all the time in NYC. It's like a loot crate for homeless folks.

Re: Anyone put a top case on their moped?

Re: Anyone put a top case on their moped?

Finaly found a nos rack for my cb125. Tossed this vintage metal milk crate on and I'm off to the beer store. Took me over a year to find a rack for it.

A plastic mike crate strapped on holds a weeks worth of food for two , with the help of a couple bungees .

Heck you can even lay an envelope in it , all by itself , and it'll stay laying in the bottom while you bring it to the post office . ;)

Real cheap option , too . :D
