Arrived home on friday evening after work and found a largish parcel , labelled "Mr K.Grover", I was  Very Happy  ,
so before going any further , I have a big thankyou to Malcoops and Floyd , for passing on to me a gearsack rack. and in return I'm looking forward to passing on reimbursement to you guys as soon as we can get a meet up organised. 

The purpose for the rack will be to modify it as a backrest , so that my young son can enjoy the upcoming trip to Tassie.
I was able to source out a set of folding armrests ( courtesy of my local recycle shop). these will add some extra comfort and balance during those moments of "rest" Sleep , which I am sure the young fellow will have along the way.

In due time, pics of this project will follow. see you then.

heres the progress so far,

this is the gearsack rack kindly supplied by Mal.
They are a good , lightweight , but solid little unit. 

re Kliner Gearsa10

came across this old style chair at the local recycle shop- at no charge, Bargain. just need to offload the unwanted section .
the seat on this is made with a solid pressed steel plate.

re Kliner Gearsa11

gave the rack some modifications . 
As I will be leaving the topbox mounted , I needed to cut the rear plate portion from the rack , Hoping I can hinge it so as to maintain its ability to carry when needed.
Added the folding armrests from the old chair. they will definitely need to be brought together more as they sit out a bit from the edge of the seat.

re Kliner Gearsa12

some extra adjustments are needed so as to bring the lower mounts in line with the Z frames.
will also need to move the whole rack forward of the rear hand grips , this will then put the backrest where it is needed and allow the top box to fit back in place. 

re Kliner Gearsa13

so far so good.

Not bad, not bad at all!

As Be made said, knock a few up and sell them.

Stick the BM roundel on it and charge 50 bucks more!

Ed if you remove the handles you will find 1 bolt hole on the bottom and 2 at the top, perhaps you can attach the rack to the top 2 that may give you room to install the topbox

all is going well, and yes I did also pick up a bottle/ cup holder( for 50 cents , of course ). 
the pitfalls of adding it are more rest stops. 
Keith , I've re-moulded the frame of the gearsack so it sits forward of the grab handles. and the rear horizontal plate is going to be folding.
so I should be OK for leaving the top box in place , and still able to open it.

Looking good Ed. You are an exceptional op-shop scrounger Laughing 
If I can thro in my 2 cents worth.  The rack for my Ventura pack has a warning "Not a Back Rest". Many racks are not specifically designed to support a person especially under acceleration. Angular momentum an' all that. Maybe look at strengthening the mounting particularly where it attaches. Just a thought. Cheers mate Very Happy

How do you drink with your helmet on? :suspect: 
Anyway would be better to just put your cup on the bumper of the car in front of you.... Shocked

How do you drink it?

You guys aren't even trying...flip-up helmet of course!

Agree with the Kaptain too about the reinforcing of the Gearsack.
