      It looks like the owner has mounted a hard shell motorcycle tail trunk to the Xtracycle rear deck. There is also a smaller version I have seen for sale that is specifically intended for mounting to bicycle racks.

      > I'd like to rig up a hard case on my Big Dummy for camera gear and other items that either need some protection from the elements or simply for things I'd like to leave safely on the bike.  I've seen a video online about using a pelican case along with Ortlieb pannier mounts, but I'm looking for something a little more burly.  Having been a long-time BMW motorcycle rider, what I would really like is something like their lockable pannier.  They store a fair amount of stuff, lock, and nicest of all come on and off easily (though this isn't a requirement for me right now).  It might be as simple as a Pelican case bolted onto the frame - I'm just in an exploratory phase right now..
