Homebrewed Ninja 250 Storage Trunk

Rigged this up for hard storage, now can easily strap a tent and some gear on the back and makes a long trip much more doable, plenty of attachment points.....easily removes and can swap back the stock seat in like 2 minutes. Ridgid box is waterproof high impact plastic resin from Home Depot 26 bucks. Got the spare seat off eBay then stripped the foam and made an angled box out of wood to mount the storage trunk to the seat plastic (foam was removed and cover re-stapled on)

We'll see how she holds up. One thing I would do different is make the wood that is the "go-between" for the storage trunk and the seat as wide as possible to eliminate side to side play in the Ridgid box

You know what they say, neccessity is the mother of invention. You could possibly find a used Pelican case for cheap if you needed a little more height and less width.

Bored? Looking for info? Watch here:
