Cheaper alternative to Mutazu hard bags

See this for a bag that is very close to the Mutazu GA in size but not price: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...K%3AMEWAX%3AIT

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!

If it wasn't for the CHEAP lock that can be popped on 2 seconds I would have bought these. They are the same size bag, I just don't like the lock.

You kidding? That looks exactly like Mutazu GAs, even to the same square emblem recess in the lid. The locks seem to be the only difference. If you're cool with the locks, you can save $40 shipped. Good luck!

Yes, and I'm cheap to boot. Friend from Pennsylvania stopped by and had them on his modified Rebel. He's had them a while, likes them, and has had no problems. May get a set for each bike.

Hmm. I'm OK with my converted Samsonite suitcases, but I wonder how hard it would be to buy these and swap out some stronger locks?
