I have the same one. Great unit for the price. When closed I found that it rattled as it did not shut tight. Used some self stick foam gasket at the corners, solved the issue.

They way I have the Street Glide shoved into a corner in the garage, this is about the best shot I can get.

That collective gasp you just heard is from the Harley purists, no it's not a TourPack and no it did not cost $800.

It goes on the bike 5 or 6 times a year when the wife decides she wants somthing to lean against, and I tell you when it's on, it's the handiest damm thing I can think of.

And yes, I kinda think it spoils the look of a Street Glide too, function over form in this case.


When I want to read a really good Harley thread, I just turn to VolusiaRiders.com

Have the same trunk w/o the rack on top, with matching bags. I would have prefered top loading bags but they came with the bike. As they say it's not a heavy duty plastic. My wife doesn't have any problems with the backrest. I can put a fullface helmet in it & still have a little room left.

Just east of nowhere & next to nothing

I have one too, I beat mine up pretty good by overloading it on a 1200 mile trip I ended up breaking one of the hinges and I modified it by using a gate hinge, the seal wears in the corners where the lid sits on the seal I put some sticky backed foam on the lid and that took care of the rattle. I mounted mine on a aluminum plate almost the size of the trunk, I did that because I was going to haul tools for work in it so I wanted it stable. You'll love having it as it does hold alot of stuff. I didnt install the rack on mine and I looks good.

Thanks for the pic Viper...looks like something I can use on my bike for now until I can figure out what kind of saddlebags I want. And you're right, the price of it sealed the deal for me. : )

Thanks for the Pix and Happy Veterans Day. It looks good and keeps the copper/black 105th theme. Like you said, its functional and it works. Thanks again, D
