The basic gist is to keep my trunk space... tell me what I should change (if anything). This is all rough right now with cardboard and zinc so please, no aesthetic judging at this time :p

The white tape was just a marking point when I was thinking about making my tail a bobber... which still might be in the works depending on my trunk idea. If I make it a bobber, I'd like to fg over the race tail to take certain cues from it to make it flow for a short bobber.



This piece would be bedliner'ed and go over the tail though the clips would go through both parts here (to keep the tail down) the top part of the tail would have two finger screws to go through a couple of holes in the subframe that already exist (i use them for my bike now). That'll keep the "fender eliminator" up. It'll be hinged to the lower part.



The lower part and where the hinge would go.



I'd still cut the center mounts out of the sub frame if I keep the trunk/race tail idea and put one center bracket towards the white line. That'll give more upward space in the tail.

Yes, I know this is not what race tails are for.
No, I don't really care. :D

*input?* ;D

I see potential in this. First you'd need to figure out the outline of the trunk, then cut out the lid part. Second, you'd need to make a lip for the lid, so that it doesn't let in water. You could do this out of some fiberglass or metal. I've always wanted a trunk that pops out on a hinge, like the 900RRs(which, btw, have amazing trunk space for a sport bike.)

I was thinking about making the lip with metal and riveting it. I looked for good pictures of the 900rr trunk but couldn't find any. ???
