Where to get plastic cases...

The google box didn't get to much pertinent info, so here goes.

I found a site/store in Richard Tx that carries several brands of Caribou/Seahorse style boxes. "Quality Cases and Containers"
What was nice was the size charts with weights of the box to compare.
There be more out there than I was aware of.
I was looking for the Condition 1 top box. I realized a 1010-24 could be found for $137 at Azamon.moc.(sic) Then I can get a Kolpin 1.5 gal fuel cell with mount for 44.99 from Gearup2 go.
So, those looking for alternative carrying luggage, there is stuff to ponder.
Probably more on the web. Let your fingers do the walking.:mrgreen:

There are a lot of purpose built bags too. Some at a value price. Some, like these, to me, are uttbuggly!
That's the point of a free market!
Some folks mount the bags angled down. Why one would not want a flat working surface when parked I dunno. I even took the handles off my Sea Horse bags, bolted solid to the rack, so I'd have a bit more room. I'm thinking of grinding off the bosses for the retaining pins to make a bigger flat area.

Notacop, I just mounted a Condition 1 case on the back of my V2. I did a short write up in the main MX/farkles forum under "$100 top case". Love it so far.

The Duratools from MCM Electronics were the cheapest option. Mine have been fine so far. When I bought 1.5 yrs back, I got two for $85 shipped.
