Locking storage compartment to replace rear seat

Recommended Posts

russellness
Hey guys,
 
Does anyone know of a box/compartment that can take the place of the rear seat?
 
I'm envisioning the rear seat comes out, box uses same mounting points and is lockable.  Was thinking it'd be a stylish way to get a little lockable storage without really disrupting the lines of the bike.
 
Heard of something like that?  I know there are little bags that can attach to the straps built in to the rear seat, but not quite what I'm looking for.
 
Thanks

Or just a plastic cover that takes the place of the rear seat and expands the under seat storage?

I cannot see that it would be that big a deal to mold a fiber-glass top (cafe-racer or Hayabusa-esque style, perhaps) to attach to a Yam seat/cover bottom-plate and have what you want. I've molded similar glass pieces over the years; it just takes time to create a really good buck (usually out of wood) for casting the mold and go from there.

On that Sportrack linked above by /u/sorkyah you could attach a variety of cases that are fully lockable, though I am unsure if you're willing to go down that top case road. Another option would be the Rear Street Softbag, that attaches magnetically, and has an available lock availalbe if interested.

OR
 
You could always fashion up your own lockbox onto the mount that we could provide to you:

This would provide you with a mount to attach to the Sportrack, and a magnetic attachment to the box of your choice. (Provided it is not overly heavy or large)
