is this trunk junk?

got an 09 and want a descent trunk that isn't too expensive. judging by the price of this it leads me to believe it's crap, but hell, the price is right! is it at least good crap?

since i'm a lowly little rookie i apparently can't post url's until i hit the pinnacle of 15 posts, so can you just paste this link into your browser after the usual http stuff...

shop.ebay.com/i.html?_nkw=dual+sport+trunk&_sacat=0&_trksid=p328 6.m270.l1313&_odkw=scooter+trunk&_osacat=0&bkBtn=1

thanks! ben

I believe thats the one I have gotten as a handmedown from Mark... Which I'm very grateful...
It's held up pretty good for the price. The tab for the latch broke on mark and he fixed it, then it broke on me and I fixed it again. The locking mount finally broke too.. I now have it screwed down to the plate.

you get what you pay for.. right? i'm not complaining.

Sure you can John.
It's just a matter of drilling some holes in the mounting plate and bolting to the rack.

The one you found on ebay is a cadillac compared to what I'm using, a black milk crate.
