I adapted a removable bicycle basket to my GTS to make it more useful for the quick trip to the grocer or whatever. The basket lifts off to take into the store and locks in place on the GTS.

Finished Project.

Notice that I used stailess hose clamps to restrain the bracket from sliding sideways. Also used a stainless steel hose clamp to hold the Front Rack down.

I bent the bicycle bracket so that it'd lay flat against the front rack and secured it with zip ties.

Creative and well done!

Looks great! Good idea using the hose clamps, they are unobtrusive and get the job done perfectly.....

I was thinking about a pic-a-nic basket for my LX.
