Here is a simple luggage rack i made for my CB500f. It utilizes the pillion grips and cost roughly 10 bucks. I am still testing it, but so far it holds up.

Build at your on RISK.
Step 1: Materials Needed
2 pieces of steel strut(unistrut) that are 2 feet long, 14 gauge steel, predrilled holes
Misc. hardware as needed for mounting things to it
Step 2: Cut Strut
Simple. cut strut in half, you should have 4 pieces that are roughly 1 foot long.
Step 3: Arranging
Line up pieces side by side, like in the PDF.
Step 4: Welding
Weld the pieces together
I'm a horrible welder!!!
Please weld better when you are making this
Step 5: Attach to Motorcycle
ok, to attach to motorcycle, i used u clamps, to attach it to the pillion grips.
Step 6: Done
Thats it! You can paint it like mine, to match the bike
With this base I attached a top case by bolting it to the unistrut. the strut also gives you great points to strap done gear.
Again I will update if I have any failures.
