Top box
« on: January 20, 2013, 02:39:22 PM »
In the random image gallery , image 1958 there is a blue Trophy with what appears to be a neat top box that doesn't look like stock ....
Anyone have any input ....?  :084:

Yup, that's me - Givi box from a long time ago, I've used it on several bikes.
It's the E450 model with a backrest pad from Givi. Took a little bit of work to mount it, but it works fine.
Monolock? Never sure if it's monolock or monokey.
I'll get the Trophy one in time I imagine, but they are so expensive it wasn't a priority.

Could you provide some more details (Pictures would be ideal) as to how the rack is mounted to the trophy? I am looking to get a Givi top box for my bike and they do not list a rack for the Trophy (yet).
Thanks.

The Givi one doesn't come even close to lining up with the Triumph holes. Surprise.
I took two old 25mm x 150mm x 6mm strips of steel and drilled them to line up with the holes on the carrier.
Then found the fixing centres on the Givi plate and used 6mm screws and nylocs as you can see.
