Mounting topcase rack to Glee

I have a spare JC Whitney topcase. How does the stock luggage rack on the Glee sit? Is there room beneath it for the Whitney mounts bolts to extend down through? I don't have a Glee yet.

You can see the bottom of the screws from the JC Whitney box's plate in this pic :





If this isn't what you were needing to know, let me know.

Thanks, that is what I needed. I'm looking at the same bike. I'll be too poor too properly outfit it for awhile!

No, you're smart enough to realize you'd go thru 10 of these for the same price as one $400 Givi setup.

A very cheap option.
Home Depot sells tool boxes, including one that looks not unlike adventure motorcycle luggage.IIRC it's about $40.

Seems like it would be easy to bolt it straight up to the rack.

It's a decent size but it's more big briefcase style so it would be hard to put a helmet in it.
