Side Luggage Basket DIY for my back-pack

So, after cutting metal and welding and painting, 2 days off spent 9am-9pm in the garage, it's finally ready.

As you can see, I kept one bag, it's where I keep a few tools and med kit.
Don't mind the taped up seat. It cracked in the winter and I haven't gotten to getting a new one yet.

Looks like it has a pretty large capacity. It will probably serve you well.

It works. I've been riding and enjoying the ride without anything hanging on my back. I also did a metal detector trip where I packed all the gear and tent on that side, and I felt a little drag or 'right side heavy', but i got used to it pretty quickly. I would definitely recommend something like that to commuters. Lose your backpack, get a basket )))
My backpack with my work clothes and some other things (less than 10 lb) are unnoticeable.
