As many of you know I'm a big fan of city cases, especially when coated with Line-X truck bed liner.

But they're kind of boring so I decided to "Duckify" a set of them.

Bought these lovely "vintage" brass wall ducks on Ebay for a mere $11 shipped. (They're just cheap old crap from Taiwan.)

Of course patina'd brass would look rather stupid on a motorcycle so I had them ceramic coated in a matte silver before I installed them.

And I found these old white but tired police city cases from the UK for a mere $140 shipped.  Aside from the distressed paint they were in excellent shape and even came with two folding keys.  Nothing a little Line-X wouldn't cure.

BMW roundels are rather boring so I found these little metal SAC (Strategic Air Command) emblems for next to nothing on Ebay.

Hi Duck,
What a great way of customising those city cases. Loved the ducky ones.
Cheers
Tom

In all fairness, I do need to give credit to the person who inspired me to do this:  a guy named Gary Weaver (who went by the username DRxBMW on BMW forums) who passed away recently.  He was one of several people who really helped me out a lot when I was just getting started wrenching on Ks and, as you can tell from the picture below, had a great sense of humor. He found this wall clock at a garage sale, replaced the clock part with a big roundel and then tacked it onto one of his city cases. I almost died laughing when I stopped by his place in Pennsylvania and first saw this.
