JC Whitney trunks now on sale... at Sears

http://auto.sears.com/Product.htm?ca...3&blockType=G3

$32.49 for Medium

If I didn't already have one mounted to my Wee, I'd be placing an order myself.


Just thought some other members would appreciate the heads-up.

There's a long, active, and ongoing thread about this already.

Thanks for the heads up. What a deal.

I paid $256. for my CooCase including the mount. The differences are the CooCase has running and brake lights, LED, but very wimpy. It does have a remote open/close feature and alarm feature which is handy though. But no backrest.

Wow!

Seems like you could buy one of these and harvest the backrest for your case.

Just a quick question.......

Does this mount up to the OEM rack or does it require an aftermarket rack?

I mounted mine to the stock rack, but ended up having to drill a couple holes in the new mounting plate of the rack to do it.

I took the stock rack off and drilled through the rubber pad in three places. Then I ran bolts through those holes and into the rack that comes with this case.

I then drilled holes in the new rack to access the stock mounting bolts for the stock rack.

First I attached the racks together and then used the four stock bolts to re-mount the racks onto the bike.

Now I know where mine came from. It was on the V when I bought it last summer and has provided pretty good service. Actually, it is surprisingly good for a trunk that costs under $50. I've only detached it once to look at the mounting rack.

I'll be replacing it though with a aluminum one when I install my Happy Trails bags in June.

Thanks boroop,
I broke the hinges on one of mine that I had side mounted. I was bringing home a frozen turkey and accidentally let the lid drop and the weight of the big bird snapped off a hinge. I had originally bought 3 Larges at JC Whitney for about $50 each. JC Whitney is currently selling them for about $90 each including shipping. I just ordered one from Sears for about $50 including shipping. Thanks for the heads up. I know these aren't the highest quality, but I have used and abused them for two years and have been very happy with them.
Thanks,
TheBlade
