    sorry no pics, but, I welded 2 pieces of 1" flat bar to the cycle rack and bolted the box to it. I also welded 2 pieces of flat bar from the rack down to the signal lights to try and give the sub frame some extra support.

    ^^^ I agree. The ones I got from them were Duratool brand and good quality. It looks like they might have changed brands. Here's a link.

    Newark has alternatives to Pelican cases at a reasonable price also.
