If I remember right, there were a bunch of thick wall spacers holding the brackets in place. The instructions for fitting were pretty comprehensive and easy  but I haven't seen them since about 1979. If you can find instructions it will give lengths of spacers from the fitting kit, I doubt the fitting kit will be available anywhere but at least you'll know whats missing

Hereís a picture of my set up from today. I rolled my rain gear up in a blanket. Iím planning on using a dry bag about the same size. I really just wanted to test it out. Took this set up on a long ride today, on the curviest roads I could find. Held up surprisingly well. I canít say Iím 100 percent pleased, but everything functions properly. One case holds my camera gear. The other holds camping/cooking gear. The dry bag on top will hold sleeping and rain gear. Itís a ton less than I carried last time, so itís much lighter. Center stand still functions. I like it. Letís camp

There used to be a rack on the market that came with low or high sissy bars. 

Run it solo with a light back on the rack or fit the high sissy bar and slap you big bag on the passenger seat up against that tall sissy bar. For the life of me I can't remember what they were called but they worked well. 

With my old T100 I used a bag on the Manx style tank which allowed me to use it as a chest rest on long runs and kept the weight forwards.

My 550 was faster with a tank bag, obviously helped the aerodynamics. Kinda weird that set up for touring with tank bag plus tent and sleeping bag tied on rear it would do around 130 with less effort than 'naked'

A high tank bag sounds like a good idea. When Iím on the road Iím constantly searching for new positions to set in especially around or after the 100 mile mark.

I had a two piece tank bag, lower section straps to tank, about 5" high then top section zipped onto lowert for carrying more stuff. Pack it with whatever that's relatively soft and you can more or less lie on it, 200+ miles no problem

Apparently I can load photos again. Hereís my camping set up from this weekend. I only camped one night, and this is all just the things I need. The good: I didnít over pack, and I carried my favorite film camera and several lenses. The bad: my tent sucks..... itís a cheap pole tent. Itís small and light and easy to put up, but itís a pain in the ass to get in and out of it. Also not too stoked on my sleeping pad.

I got a late start and my headlight blew while I was barreling down a dark highway. Thereís that. What was worse, the light bulb is apparently made of unobtainium. So hereís what I did right. I pulled over immediately first of all, calmly and slowly. I always pack my bicycle light. Itís actually very bright. I used to cycle a lot and that was my headlight. I zip ties that up, and used it as a temporary headlight to backtrack to a parts store. Like I said, swapping the light bulb would be too easy and of course the didnít have it. I bought a tool an automotive bung and a headlight (3 prong) for about 40 bucks total and wired that mother up. It took a total of about 10 minutes and I was back on the road. And now I can find lightbulbs anywhere lol. Everything else went well enough. I did feel like the bike smelled a little ďrichĒ, but it ran amazing. Is that possible? No backfires or anything. Cranks fine idle is great. I do think Iím getting a little noise from the front wheel bearings. Definitely going to inspect that further.

Ultimately need this bike to make some real trips. Not because itís convenient, but more or less for the challenge of it. Thereís something about making this bike dependable enough to actually ride is an obsession of mine.

Looks are totally secondary to me at this point

Nice side cases. I might have missed it but how are they mounted?
