You may find welding rod tubes in a couple of sizes at many farm stores, Home Depot, Lowes, etc. Similar tube with o-ring seal for under $10.

Great idea and if it was made by Touratech or BMW it would cost about $100.

Keep us posted on the mounting.

Direct LINK to get the $4.99 tube.

That just may be the best one I've seen yet.

Nice find... Much easier than trying to cobble up all the PVC bits... I just ordered one before all you fookers make a run on them and clean this place out. $4.99 + $7 to ship to CA.... I'm sure it'll mount right up on the inside of my left Motech rack frame...

Priceless

Priceless! I ordered the tractor tube two days ago and got a telephone call this morning. There was something wrong with my billing/shipping address.

The country gal from the tractor store couldn't help it and finally asked me:

"Well sir, we've been selling them manual containers like hot bread this week. May I ask what tractor that container is for?"

Me: "Mam, I don't own a tractor, I just need the tube".

Tractor lady: "Why is everybody buying them tractor manual containers if they don't own equipment?"

If finally explained that somebody posted a link on a motorcycle forum, and everybody thought those tubes would come in handy for storing tools. Just hope they don't raise prices now...
