Yes, adapter pictured above worked well for over a year, except for one thing. The red and yellow plastic sheets have almost no stiffness. The whole thing sagged just from the weight of the empty bag.Wondering if Desertbike has had some time now with it on bike?
Not enough sag that anything touched the tank, but it wasn't very nice to look at.
I got around to making a second prototype recently. Have plans for a third.
I posted about it elsewhere, but can't remember which thread. Looks like this:
Summary: I used a thicker and therefore stiffer plastic piece (cutting board), and eliminated a layer. The screws that secure the bag now go directly into plastic. Working ok so far.
I may do a third prototype. From the photo it's clear I should extend the plastic to almost the very back end of the bag, else it will slump back a bit and pull away from the front screws.
Need a jigsaw or similar tool first. I wasn't able to finish the second version very satisfactorily. The visible edge is super rough. Hazard Fraught was out of stock of the jigsaw I wanted, and a drill + hacksaw is a lousy substitute.
I might even get fancy and paint the 3rd version black, so it blends in.
