I'm having difficulty searching for a replacement toolkit/document holder (the lockbox that is behind the seat above the rear tire).

Maybe I'm using the wrong words (sorry, newbie here), but I just bought a Vulcan 750 on Friday and that box is broken. It doesn't appear to be sold with the seat.

Any ideas? Thanx in advance.

I have the whole thing, but it's just held on with a bungee cord at the moment.

But the thread gave me (a now somewhat obvious) idea - I'll just try and make/fix it with a better hinge. Thanks!

Here`s a thread with directions and pictures for using a piano hinge.

I just did some preventative maintenance on mine using a pair of 4 inch strap hinges just like this.

I rate my work on it ~ 99%, but the hinges are not perfectly aligned, and it just slightly binds when it is opened. It is not visually noticeable when closed. I would use the piano hinge if I had it to do again.
