Aftermarket Rear Fender

This may be an example of overfarkelization, but what the heck. I got some steel angle and screwed it to the back of my Fender Amplifier and stuck it onto the Caribou racks.

The amplifier is about the same dimensions as the Pelican Cases and weighs about 30 pounds. I rode to my weekly unpaid coffeeshop gig. (Tips go to a local soup kitchen).

My groupie/roadie/wife rode on her Harley Sportser.

Slight problem, when I turned on the amp, I realized the volume knob was missing. I kicked it off when mounting in the driveway. I found it when I got home later.

That's a great looking mount. . . and I love the play on words.

I hope you get lots of tips.

There are some battery-powered amps available.

Don't tempt me.

Now if you hooked that up to a Stebel Airhorn just think of the possibilities.

Thats cool! I have always wished that I could throw the Takamine on the scoot to go play at a friends house instead of using the cage to do so. I always invisioned strapping it to the luggage rack and against the sissy bar in a standing position on my VTX. Maybe the Vee will be a guitar transport in the future!
