Didn't like the way the new top box sat on the carrier I was planning on using so had to fabricate something that worked. Powder coated the end product.

I'm going to call the Delta Wing Project completed (for now)
Just need to get rid of the snow and warm the air up and I'm ready to ride.
See you at Paris in June.
