Be safe mate.
Slightly of topic but Ginz do make a luggage rack to fit their bars, I have one and it's great. I have the C&C sport touring seat, Ginz bar, back rest & luggage rack (which my sissy bar bag sits on) and I can have the mrs and enough stuff for a weekend away in comfort for a 500 KLM plus ride.....

This is my home brew job. Its 3/4" pipe attached to custom mounts that contour the fender. A buddy of mine made them on the laser at work and he welded the whole thing up for me. I'll get better pictures and update.

I know is a bit off, but i have a Danny Grey 2up XL Airhawk, I have had to mount my Ginz brackets 90mm to the rear of recommended position which with the shorter Ginz bar is no big deal, but, if i went with a taller Gins bar it would lean too far back if you get my drift.
I really need to have it experimented on first. If it ever stops raining here i'll put up some pics.

I installed the struts on inside of frame rails after redrilling and tapping two existing smaller holes, then used those as pivot point to adjust the angle or lean of back pad. The tricky part was measurements as to where the supports were coming through fender. Once I got close, I did the old trial and error of setting fender back on to make final adjustments and making the oval openings symetrical to the supports. Really strong, and economical for what I had to work with for budget. Have had zero comfort complaints from anyone on back.
I guess you expected to catch some shit because you cut through the fender, but I think it's very cool and unique. At a first quick glance, I didn't even notice.

Are those your cows in the background?

Life is good!
