I don't have any pics of the set up we use up close and actually I've never finished mine but here's a pic of mine and one of Bump's, if he chimes in he might have some close up pics of one done.

You can get these backrest from Cabela's and marine ice chest (great size it holds 1 case of beer, a couple of waters and bag of ice) from Academy.

We weld angle iron in the frame of the backrest to keep the cooler from sliding around any and then a hook on each side. Then use a turn buckle (can get at Tractor Supply) on each side of the ice chest hooked to the hooks put on the frame. This secures the ice chest really well but you will need one bungee over the lid to help keep it closed. I've been looking for some little 3 to 4" bungees to attach to the ice chest to make this easier.

Bump always has pics of everything.

Another note, the plastic ice chest hooks do ok but I would cut them off and bolt an i bolt on each side.

I don't have pics, but a gut I ride with made one out of some square tubing. It is basically a basket that the cooler fits in. He welded a regular 2" receiver on his rack and welded the male insert on the basket. When he is not using it, he can pull the pin out and take it off just like a trailer hitch. The basket has high sides, so unless he rolls the bike, the cooler is not going anywhere.
It took some work, but when you need an excuse to get away from the wife to go in the garage and drink a few, you do what you have too!
