Like the sound of the duffle bag@Abel, I'll give you a big thumbs up. I'm not thinking you bought that topcase because you wanted to be the coolest person in the world with a Bobber, but that you wanted a Bobber, and needed storage for whatever reason, and tried to find an option that at least fit in with the classic vibe and style of the bike, and you succeeded. I didn't know anything like that was out there anywhere. Tons of room, but not a modern, plasticky blob on top, as I first thought it might be when I read your title. Best option I've seen when you need a lot of storage in something that looks retro, and only other option is a large, waxed cotton duffle which will require rok straps or similar to attach to the bike.
Hepco and Becker is superbly made stuff and suits the Bobber style very well. I have the C Bow frames for the panniers but the duffel bag goes on a rack behind the seat.Like the sound of the duffle bag
I don't like the aesthetics either, but only when it's unloaded. As soon as you load it up, it looks great IMHO. Bunkerbarge's photo is spot on. And more to the point, it can carry a heavier loan that the fender-mounted racks because the weight is sprung.Hepco & Brecker rack is a practical storage solution, but I personally didn't like the aesthetics.
No problem! Had my topcase made ar local leathershop in Barcelona, have it mounted with leather belts on a Jawa luggage rCk, works very well!Ditto the above.

Fehling rack worked out OK for me - first image. Last Easter loaded it up with my full kit (about 25Kgs from memory) without any detriment to the guard though I did cross brace the rack underside to reduce the possibility of mounts 'sagging' and dimpling the guard.

Sorry Abel, didn't mean to knock the wind out your sails with this left-field post.
