First I used steel pipe and slit the ends.
Then inserted some flat stock that were drilled to fit the frame holes.
Mounted these on the bike.
I bought these HD hoops that fit into the lower ridge under the bags. I cut the ends off and welded them to a cross bar that bolted to the frame.
The finished hoops on the bike. On the HD loops, I didn't use the fat rubber bushings that pop into the bottom of the bags. Instead I used EPDM rubber tape under the bags and drilled and tapped 1/4-20 threads into the holes in the hoop to bolt the bags down from the inside. Sits them down lower.
Bags on the bike.
As she sets today with a trunk. Ultra Star.
This is how I lit everything up.

Roadwing Electrical Harness Hi I'm Gonzo! Godfather of the Roadwing, a Honda Goldwing GL1800 rear shock with an electric over hydraulic preload adjustment, modified to fit the under sprung Road Star 1700. Here is the place to learn more about the electrical harness you need to make it all work. I am the sole provider of this harness though I provided the wiring diagram years ago for those of you that want to make your own. Refer to Tykes page for the original write-up at : https://tykesplace.com/yamaha-roadstar/roadwing/ There are probably over 600 Road Stars converted to this shock now. It is a 200lb increase over stock spring rate coupled with Honda's premiere bike's top of the line actuator. Your bike will handle like its on rails once you've completed the install, and being able to adjust the preload at the flick of a switch is miles better than jacking up your bike and making 1/4" turns of a nut when you add a passenger or gear. No more frame ba
Gonzo’s Rock Mailbox Process: Note that when I built my mailbox, I could not find a lot of helpful information with material lists, so I had to wing much of it. I hope someone can use my information to help them build something as nice. I used graph paper to draw mine out completely for a list of materials et.al. I still made changes. Cost: ~$600 plus rock covering. Use native rock if you have it and cut the backs off flat to adhere. Materials: · Home Depot Extra Large Architectural Mailbox Model #950020B-10 - $69.97 · O rder a number plate beforehand. There are people who make these custom on Etsy. We ordered ours here from Jim Grady at StoneDigits · 1 2-16 cinderblocks depending on curb height Grout bag Tube of RTV sealant · · 18, 80lb Bags of Maximizer concrete 2 Bags Type-N mortar 2 Bags Sand · Sh
Gonzo's Batwing Interconnect Harness for Road Stars So you want to put a full batwing inner and outer fairing on your bike, but you're not sure about the wiring. Let me make it easy for you... My Batwing Interconnect harness will plug into the stock two plugs that went to your tank mounted speedo and will provide all the functions to your dash indicator panel like (separate) left and right turns, oil (engine) lamp, high beam indicator, and neutral. The HD dash indicator panel comes in different configurations, LED or little bulbs, and the connector size changes. Before procuring this harness, procure the indicator you wish to use or let me get it and send it tp you all at once. My harness will provide pigtails to connect your new gauges to and will be labeled as such. I will need to know which gauges you are using. I used SpeedHut gauges like these which are configurable for color, needles et al. Refer to SpeedHut.com. The Batwing Interconnect Harn
