Talking Need a luggage rack? Cheap?

I made some luggage stays for my DL1000. This protects the pipes from my luggage (soft luggage), and protects the luggage from the pipes!

It could be modified for the Wee. The passenger peg mount is a beefy and convenient place to put these. I posted a thread on the DL1000 specific area but thought 650 riders might like to see it:

Here's the luggage not attached (no 'stand-off')

So here is what the rack looks like (with shiny new Remus Revs tucked away under it). It does exactly what I need it too, and even protects the pipes from road rash.

I might redesign to fit the lines a little better, and it could be modified to fit the Wee. I could make a few dozen, maybe. Hard to justify if not in demand. Would anybody be interested in these ?

Photos and reports told me that these were the ones to get. I was quite PLEASED to see how nicely they mounted, and looked, and sounded. Then I uncorked them last weekend, and just can't seem to find the screws to put the baffles back in

Oh well.
