    Default OEM Toolbox location on swingarm panhead

    Folks. Looking to install an OEM style, teardrop shape toolbox on my OEM frame/swing arm pan head. I have seen some pics on what I assume to be an original style OEM (tear drop shaped) toolbox on the web:

    When mounted, it appears that all of the pics I have seen were on kick only (pre '65) models, so there is room to mount one (no large battery box) just forward of the lower rear fender on the frame, on the carb side of the bike

    See the two pics:

    My questions:

    1. I'd like close up pic if available, of exactly where the toolbox would mount

    2. Pic of the proper mounting bracket

    3. I have seen several versions of the tear drop style toolbox. If someone could post a link of the correct style for the swing arm style (aftermarket OK) , that would be a great help

    What year pan do you have????? You didn't say......

    Are you looking to put a tool box on a 65 since you can't find a pic of one with a box............

    Tattooo:

    The pics show the style toolbox I want to mount on my Pan head swing arm frame: I believe the style toolbox shown in the pics fit 58-64 Pans. Exact year of my OEM pan head swing arm frame may not matter (as the swing arm (round or square) does not play a factor here), but regardless, I have a 1964 OEM swing arm frame

    If I could just get a pic of the proper mounting bracket it would solve my issue. There are allot of different mounting brackets out there on research and I cant get closure on what tool box bracket is used on 58-64 Big Twin swing arm frames

    It's obvious your looking for a bracket for a swingarm bike...... Your the one that mentioned a 65 not me...... You said... {it appears that all of the pics I have seen were on kick only (pre '65) models} That sounds to me like you were looking for a pic of an electric start and you can't find pics of it.....

    Now we know.....
