    SOLD! Two Pelican-ISH cases

    20180106_184124.jpg
    Hi, all! I have two Pelican-like cases for sale that I modified to work with the Cycleracks rear rack and their pannier racks, too. It meant drilling holes and cutting some slits so the cases aren't as fully waterproof as they were. However, I rode for about 10 hours in pouring rain when they were on the pannier racks and there was no moisture in the boxes at all. Clever use of bolts and washers pretty much fills the gaps.

    I've created a Google photo album here - https://photos.app.goo.gl/9fcs4GOrdh1fZp1j1

    I hope it works. I have terrible luck with that stuff.

    Case info:

    16 x 13 x 7 exterior measurements more or less depending on where you measure. The box is more 15 x 12 but the lips/ridges add about an inch or so
    Bought from MCM Electronics (which is now Newark apparently) - pretty sure they are this one

    The holes are drilled so that the box is level (more or less - I'm not the most precise about such things) when they are bolted to the pannier rack set on the bars in front of the tail lights. The front hook of the pannier rack sits on the downhill sloping rack bar. I used fender washers on both sides of the drilled hole when I had them mounted, with nuts on the inside of the box and then foam over the top to protect box junk.

    The slits were cut into one box (sloppily with a Dremel) to match (sorta) the rear rack space. The box handle has to be up to snug the box up to the back of the rack where it has the bend. If the handle is down, the cuts are off and it's hard to tighten the box up on the rack.

    I have a HF plastic welding kit I can throw in if you feel like closing up the holes. I believe the 'welding' strips are ABS and should fuse with the boxes.

    I have no idea what shipping costs would be. They don't list a weight but they seem to weigh less than 5 lbs each.

    Give 'em a home! They're useful :-)

    Cool! Want to PM me your address so I can figure out shipping? And do you want the plastic welder? It's basically a glorified soldering iron - nothing fancy.

    Favour before you ship them? Does there happen to be any company name, model number, etc on them? They are the exact one that I bought on sale here at Princess Auto (the Canadian version of HF). They have since stopped carrying them, and any others I'm able to find anywhere are too big, too flimsy, etc. That one was tough, waterproof (aside from the mounting), and just the right size to hold everything I needed for a day of biking. I'd like to buy another one, if I can track down an online source.

    *Edit - And, I'm an idiot and completely missed the 'this one' link. I'm off to do some Googling...see if I can find a place that that sells in Canada without $100 shipping.

    You Canadians seemingly sure have to pay excessive fees for most items. Why? It is not as if these are protective tariffs to aid your domestic manufactures or vendors.

    We have less people and less purchasing power domestically ..otherwise it's the shipping and roughly sales tax added as duty when customs does add it on. Items under 100$ seems to get overlooked for duty.
