Looking for a under seat tool tray

My rear tool box is full of electronics for the flashing brake light and the trailer light converter. Not having a front tool tray was not an issue untill I filled the back one with ^%$*.

Anyone have an extra laying around, it doesn't have to be pretty

Thanks Rob.......... I checked Real OEM and sure enough I saw the other kind but have never seen one. The one I'm after was produced and fitted  from 78-85. It kooks like there was a different seat on the early years that used the "little" tool box..... the one I'm after is pictured below..............

'78-'85 covers three generations of Type 248s.

But yes, the one in the picture appears to be for your '84.

They certainly resemble the R65's and that looks like an R65 rear box in there as well.

Please report back, Wilcom. That guy has a lot of stuff, I'd be curious about his prices and shipping.

Will do. I did not low ball him, but did offer less than I would be willing to pay. I hate it when things aren't priced, you have to keep a price balance between "insulting & Way too much". we shall see

Hi Joe. Have I got a deal for you. I have a real nice under seat tray from my '84 LS that I won't ever use. PM me an address and I will box it up and send it to you. What I ask in exchange is once you get it, decide what it is worth to you, and send me something that can only be gotten where you live. I have been doing this for years and it is always interesting. Sent a shift linkage to a fellow in Australia and received an interesting beer coozy, sent a clutch perch to South Africa and got a nice t-shirt. Nothing expensive, just something unique to were you live. Have a map in my office and I snap a picture and attach it to were things came from. Helps remind me we are all in this together.

Keep your bike in good repair:  motorcycle boots are not comfortable for walking.
