Found these on fleabay so thought I'd give em a try.

5L Jerry Can Spare Petrol Container With Free Holder Fuel Container Heavy Duty

Saw there that 3 liter cans are also available.

They turned up and didn't look too bad, so next step was to figure out how and where to mount them.

Might not be the prettiest option but the extra 10 liters of fuel when needed will come in handy.

I like simple and not over engineered, all I needed was to bridge the gap between the tail frame and the passengers foot peg bracket.
Done, with a straight piece of 22 mm O.D. steel tube (ex bar stool ) measure, bend top at 90 degrees, and flatten ends. Twist ends to fit tail frame and foot peg bracket, drill two holes (6 mm & 8 mm), size/fit, paint, then fit using stainless bolts and anti rattle washers and blue medium strength thread lock.

Materials used; 2 x 500 mm x 22 mm O.D. steel tube, (best to start with a bit longer to allow for fabrication)
2 x 8 mm x 16 mm hex head stainless bolt
2 x 8 mm anti rattle washer
2 x 6 mm x 16 mm hex head stainless bolt
2 x 6 mm anti rattle washer
couple of dabs of blue medium strength thread locker
300 mm of medium emery tape to clean and prepare tubes
1 x spray can of anti rust gloss black paint
Tools required;
Hack saw and or angle grinder/cutter
4 pound club hammer
electric drill with 8 mm and 6 mm drill bits
10 mm and 13 mm combination spanners
marking pen or engineers chalk
tape measure or rule
8 mm long series 1/4 inch drive socket (to fit fuel tank U-bolts)

Accessories;
Lighter, smokes, couple cans of Captain Morgan and Cola.


Fitting the tanks is straight forward and easy.
Once the U-bolts are fitted and tightened it's simply a case of cutting the excess thread off with a hacksaw.

Bonus,,,

Just lookin at this finished task this morning and realized that a set of saddle bags I had in the bike room could quite possibly be adapted to these fuel container brackets.

Posted about it here with pics; So what have you done today?

Does the trick.
Those racks will also accommodate other things as well.

In the old Beemer days we used to use 20 liter jerry cans for fuel, but those 20 liter jerry cans with the top sliced off and a inner sleeve fitted so the top went back on made great waterproof cargo containers as well,,, a 24 can slab fitted into them perfectly.

Found these on fleabay so thought I'd give em a try. Hello ,I have fitted a rear rack too my ICON , I ALSO FITTED /PLACED my fabric OXFORD panniers ,these sagged towards the tyre .
I thought how easy it would be to fabricate 2 pieces of tube and fir to this rack and prevent sagging .
HEY PRESTO YOU have done it .
I was to use alloy tube already bent from an old caravan water bottle carrier.
Such inventiveness ,you must have relations in YORKSHIRE .
rangerover .

Good morning , THAT BASHPLATE IS THE BUSINESS.
I am to do a dress rehearsal on my ICON for my trip to GERMANY ,the VOSGES MOUNTAINS ,BLACK FOREST ,THEEE `B500`( it is a must . stuff the NURBURGRING ). To take 8 days .
I have been undecided to take the ST4S (again) or the SCRAMBLER .
The factors were the Scramblers throttle ,as you do not want the bike to light up negotiating a` throttle off ` hairpin ( AND THEY are hairpins .) or a FRENCH roundabout .( both of which would not be conducive to long lasting good health ha ha .)
The ST4S conversely is mega fast ,has mega brakes ,is mega placeable ,it has large luggage capacity ,fuel range ,comfy ( after seat modification ,)BUT is big and I am not as strong as I thought I was .( and I am also vertically challenged ).
I am now going through the pro`s -con`s of changing the rear sprocket to a 44 tooth , cos the trip will be `quick` in parts ( who ME officer ).
ONE LIFE and LIVE IT ,.
