cheap tank saddlebags... $25 (retail)

I bought my bike with the toolbox lid missing. I've since removed it (I think it looks better gone than broken) and began looking for an inexpensive storage replacement. I can't bear the thought of paying over $50 for a used toolbox on eBay that will likely break again (as many of you have said they do).

Sooooooo... I have been considering another storage option.

I've come across these black canvas tank saddlebags for $25. Has anybody used these or something similar. What's your opinions!? Do you think they're ugly? cool? dorky? please let me know.

Not sure how well they'd hold up to the heat of the exhaust.

I just posted these pics of what I used to replace my toolbox....

It is actually a (really) small backpack that I picked up at Wally World, in the luggage section



Fits great with the toolbox removed. But would probably work just fine with the toolbox in place.
