I ordered two, at £11 each delivered.

Looks like they come team Poland based on the tracking record.

White one would look good on the back of a UH200 .

I think for the money, it's a very reasonable deal.

No idea of the overall quality but it'll be fine for putting some sandwiches and a flask in! 😂

Thanks for sharing gtd65.

Back home with proper internet (& despite already being on their newsletter list) I've ordered one in white.

If it's crap it's still cheaper than a Givi base plate alone.

Time will tell

Good call, thanks. At that price it's worth a punt so ordered a white one for the Kayak.

I do like a topbox - storage of them all is becoming a problem now! :D

I've actually ordered a tool shed to keep top boxes and panniers :oops:

Might be while before I get to Great Bentley, or anywhere on a bike. Still limited to the Smart Car at the moment. I did consider getting a back rack for it and bolting my Givi Trekker on but couldn't get it in time for the East Anglian. :lol:

I put a new shelf up in the shed for boxes but now I can get up and down stairs a bit better going to keep them in my loft which I converted to a storage area 7 years ago. :D

Also got given an old Gas Board leather toolbag recently. That's going to Oz in my case next visit for the Postie.

Just arrived via Parcel Force this morning.

Looks very decent for the money - very slight rubbing to the upper part of the red trim but looks like it would polish out pretty easily if it was a problem.

Not quite big enough to close on my 58cm size Arai helmet (about 1" too tall) but I've bought it to put a few "essentials" in, rather than leaving helmets.

White one arrived Friday.

Can't find any damage on it at all, obviously not super quality but great for the money.

It's for the white Chinesey anyway.

Oh and I appear to have just bought a little white butty box off eBay (it was local). :lol:
