Don't worry you can make up for it next week! This bucket will look like a vintage mx number plate, hold an anti-gravity 6ah battery, moto-gadget break out box & fuse panel plus have a discreet on-off/hi-lo toggle on the top!

Hopefully that stuff isn't too heavy. On a wr450 I had I mounted a mini tool bag on the front number plate. 

Later I put that kit in my bigger backpack.  I couldn't believe how much lighter the front end felt. That little bit of weight bogged the front steering quite a bit.

May not be a problem for you but something to think about.

I don't think it weighs that much maybe a little more than a 7" round headlight. Those tool pouches get heavy real quick.

Here's a quick shot from today's progress. I'm still waiting on my marine fuse panel/distribution block and will add the battery box tomorrow or Monday, after working on a couple customer bikes.

This uses an adv monster led headlight that is bright as f$%k, holds an antigravity 4 cell battery a fuse panel and has space to tuck a horn into it and probably a reg./rec all in a 10"x10" square. I'm pretty happy with it.

I love it!  Was planning something similar on my build, but I wasn't gonna store that much crap up there.  I like the marine fuse panel idea too.  I'm  gonna try to use circuit breakers in place of fuses if I can.  Can't wait to see more.

I like it man! My next bike I'm building is a street tracker I wanted to do the number plate headlight.  I was looking at projectors but I like these adv lights you found.

Thanks, I was going to build a carbon box under the seat but this was easier and everything always gets ran up to the bucket so I figured it would be nice to have it easily accessible up in there and make wiring the bike cleaner.

If anybody wants I am doing a run of these to sell, and can make them without battery boxes and fuse panels if necessary.

I would be interested in parts of it.

Got a bit more done today. I started the final chassis assembly and got the motor painted. Progress has been slow this week since I've been hammering out some customer bikes. Any way here's a few pics. and next week should bear more fruits.

Nice! Looks like Shinko 705s, what sizes are you running?
