Yea, you buy one Snap-On toolbox once, pay way too much for it, and there it is 60+ years later... and the drawers still slide like the day you unboxed it.

+1 I have the same top box bought in 1971 and a bottom bought in 1974. Mine spent the bulk of their lives in a truck/heavy equipment shop where the norm is to roll your box to whatever you're working on, including outside in nice weather. It still rolls like new and the drawers still slide the same way. Yours looks a lot nicer than mine, but I'm thinking yours never got bunted across the floor by a 977 Cat loader. That being said mine's still dead square and undented even after all the abuse.

I find it more comfortable than a bar with more degrees of bend at the ends. For my shoulder width & arm length if works.  I had a pure flat drag bar on my BSA and that was indeed uncomfortable on the wrists.

imma buy one then.  For the money if it's painful I can get another shape and try again.  So many options

I understand. I was too obtuse, sorry. If you print in foam and wrap with carbon fiber you will have the most extremely light and strongest saddle bag bracket _ EVER.

I could print in the plastic and wrap it in carbon fiber.  That's a pretty good idea. 

There are carbon fiber printing filaments but they don't really have the same strength as the mesh/resin approach.  The old ways are still good ways

What if your filter is square or oblong? Seems like a lot of dough for something I'd use once a year. It'd be cheaper to just buy a spare.  :o

So I would like to step up to 21" wheels front and rear on my 2021 Cont. GT. Does anyone know if there are any aftermarket that are being made for the Royal, or any 21" wheels from other brand bikes that will work on the Royal. I like the look of bigger wheels and I cant find white wall tires for the factory tires on my Royal.

Buy yourself an old Monte Carlo and put BIG wheels on that.

Leave your GT alone.

WOW!
Woody's Wheels in Colorado would be a start.
That is a very ambitious project.
 You could consider a test with this $15 kit

Gents!
Most useful (and entertaining!) discussion, thank you. Unfortunately confirms some of what we'd already been thinking. Both the Hitchcock's hardtail kit and the Janus are already on the table, but likely neither will *quite* scratch that itch. We will turn instead to chumming up the local/internet local heads in old-bikery and see what precipitates.
