Question Mysterious travel cylinder, any ideas?

Hi experienced travelers,

I have seen these pictures in a touratech travel catalogue of these special travel cylinder for tool, water etc. placed either underneath the exhaust pipe or uppersite the exhaust pipe(or both)






Any ideas of there to buy these cylinder? They are shown in a Touratech catalogue of world travelers but Touratech does not sell them
I would very much like to bring these on my trip to Norway this summer

Best Regards
Rasmus

Visit a building supply/hardware dealer, I believe it's ABS plumbing fixtures.

PVC pipe, one with the screw in cap and the second with an expanding plug.

Welding rod holders also work well but aren't as sturdy as ABS. Another advantage to the homemade ABS tubes is that you can make them any length you want.

Here's one already made up.

But you'd be money ahead to find some pipe and fittings.

US$17.00



That's a document tube for a tractor that they're reselling.

US$4.99


Here's a huge thread about them.

The ones in the picture are ABS pipe from any hardware store with a cleanout glued on one end and probably a cap on the other. Remember if building your own, PVC glue doesn't work on ABS.

Make sure you match up CPVC or PVC or ABS glue or whatever material you're using.

Like everyone else has said, that is ABS plumbing. I have a tool tube on my bike made of 4" with that exact same screw cap that you show in your pictures. I also have a few of the tractor manual holders on my quads and dirt bikes.

If I knew what they called Home Depot in Denmark I would send you there but whatever your local hardware store is should be able too help you.

I would suggest you use a simple slip over end cap rather than the threaded caps . . . . . . my thread caps would, if left along for a week or so, need a wrench to open them . . .

since one of mine has the first aid kit in it, tools should not be required ;-}

Thanks guys for all your input. Will find a local hardware store and ask them to help me

All the best

I have to say the lids do come off my tool tubes much easier than the pvc ones I have made in the past, plus the o-ring seems to work well on preventing leaks. I did end up just using large SS hose clamps instead of the integrated bolt slots, though. If you put your items in a plastic bag or pouch, then work it into the tubes, you can leave them on the bike and just pull out the pouches when you stop for the night, nobody will steal those green logs, lol. I did notice the lids have a low percentage habit of loosening up, but I just check them daily. One could apply some gorilla duct tape around them for heavy-duty riding cases. Be prepared for "retro rockets" jokes, lol.

i have experienced prices in denmark, i would go for a little ride across the border to the nearest german hardware store if i were you!

also, if its like in England, they wont like to sell you less than a 2 or 3m length of soil pipe, so if you have some friends interested club together and make 5, or sell them?

hey rasmustr,,, i dont know what you might call them where you live, but when you go to the hardware store you will be looking for a clean out cap or plug, and a female adaptor.
