I should have added my two bits and congratulated you on an excellent first post,..but i was too busy wondering about the frame to think of it....
as McF says, there could be a market for such a set up, small perhaps but there none the less.
As a bike it is more a tourer then a sports bike so some luggage set up would be a good idea.
IF it was being sent far away to be sold, i wonder if the bars linking the top box carrier to the lower frame bars (just behind the wingrack pannier holder ) are welded..would it be possible to consider making that with a bolt holding it together so then it might almost be a 'Flat pack, self assembly' job for who ever wanted one?
Obviously jumping the gun a bit..may be too much work and no one wants one...but who knows.
Given me food for thought...my Rf crowd are always on the hunt for a rack (renntecc make one for £60+ ) but the wingrack style is over £200 new and rare as a gordon brown gaffe free day... ;D
Hi all wow lots of positive reactions - Thanx Soooo many questions i'll try to answer them all The first problem was where to fix it all to the bike - I found 4 good places without loosing the rear grip
Then cut and bend all the pieces untill they fit - first I drilled holes and put it together with nuts and bolts and when I was sure that it was sitting right welded it all together

I bought the bike in January 2010 in Almelo (NL) for €950 with 16,700km on the clock. There were two previous owners: the first was a lady who was a little afraid of the bike, the second: a man who used it for sunny days out to Assen etc, so I ended up with the bargain of my life. I'm so happy with the bike it just needed a new Battery and a service, the gearbox sounds sometimes like a welsh tractor but it starts first time, drives like a dream and handles very nice even with my Dutch Blond and all the luggage on the back One problem I had was every time I clicked the indicator switch on or off I somehow managed to also touch the Horn button leading to a few embarasing situations. The answer was to make a small metal plate and shield the Horn button off
