Ummm sounds like a great time to learn. Grab a mig welder and some square or round stock and start learning to weld. Find a quick detach sissy bar and use it as a template to cut out the side plates. Then decided if you want square or round stock for your bar and take some measurements as to how far forward or back you want it to sit. Then draw up some blue prints on how you want your tour pak mount plate to attach to the bar.
Jakyl's setup uses a half box design mount plate welded to side bars that fit into the QD plates all powder coated for extra measure. Friend of mine locally has one and we looked at it quite a bit cause the one complaint he has is that it sits more forward than he'd like making two up riding pretty uncomfortable.
My suggestion would be using regular QD side plates as a template, redraw it so that the side bars for the sissy bar fit farther back than stock so when the half box tour pak mounting plate is added on its sitting a couple of inches farther back. I am sure Jakyl's design was done so that he didn't have to make and use new side plates thus raising the cost of the tour pack.
