Rear Case

I found a Vulcan 750 that has a hard case on the back - Unfortunately the guy that owns the moto has no idea what brand it is, or how it was mounted - I'm hoping someone here has an idea - I'd love to put a hard case on the back of mine - See pictures, and thanks!

I have a hard case, these pics are the first one I had (cheap off eBay), I broke the bottom hitting a pothole and ended up replacing it with a Givi case. The cases come with a universal mount bracket and hardware that bolt onto the stock luggage rack.

Kinda looks like one of the generic tail trunks for motor scooters you see on eBay. Some are great, some not so. I found a good one there for the sidecar, but you have to read all the reviews to see. You'd need a tail rack also.

Velorex 562 sidecar w/trunk
2-wire mod
Headlight power switch
Manual fan switch
Shingigen SH775
Blue wire mod
Yellow wire mod
RLU removed
RR moved
Voltmeter relay wired
Coils direct wired w/relay
TOC MCCTs
handicap mods:
extended foot shift
heel shifter
extended brake pedal

Can you tell me what Givi case / mounting bracket you have?

The one in the pic is a cheap eBay top box. There is truth to “buy nice or buy twice” that’s why I replaced it. I just don’t have a pic of the bike with the new case because I’m currently getting my stator replaced. This is the 34liter Givi, the bottom of the case is much sturdier, and it has stronger mount points

Can you tell me what Givi case / mounting
bracket you have?
https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/...olock-top-case

Here’s the link, the bracket comes with it but I believe they sell them separately

Thanks for the link - I'm looking around for the mounting bracket. I really want to see how it connects to the back of the Vulcan. Since we have the slotted back - or would their mounting bracket replace the current? (see pic)

I have the same rack on my bike, so the top box has a plastic mounting bracket that the case itself snaps onto. That same bracket comes with hardware to bolt it onto the stock luggage rack. No drilling necessary. I think there’s a video on the Revzilla link. Just keep in mind I don’t keep anything too heavy in that box, the main things I keep in there are my helmet, gloves, a few tools, and a battery jump starter. Not to mention the occasional take out meal or 6 pack lol. They make heavier duty boxes depending on what you need/want

I'm considering this case, because a reviewer posted it worked with his slotted sissy bar - https://www.amazon.com/Emgo-72-32440...90W4YHB90GPTPD

I would prefer the Givi brand, but I don't see their mounting brackets that work with our slotted luggage racks.
