    this thing is interesting

    looks like it could be fabricated with some PVC pipe. anybody know if this one is home made or commercially manufactured?

    Twisted Throttle- http://www.twistedthrottle.com/shop-...l-item-storage

    or you can use a welding rod tube and adapt yourself. OM

    EDIT- as a thread was started on this item, I merged them up together and as it's now in it's own thread, moving it to Gear..........I have two of the TT units on my TW200. OM

    I believe the one in your picture is homemade. Easy as pie using PVC pipe.
    I have a couple of tool tubes I bought from http://www.agrisupply.com. They are very cheap. I haven't mounted them yet.
    Here is some other 'ideas' from http://www.thetooltube.com. That should be enough ideas to get those creative juices flowing!

    Easily done. I made one in about 15min for my KLR, painted it, and it works great.

    I've seen PVC used for tools, spare bulbs, repair parts, etc. Easy to assemble, waterproof, and really durable.
