I have dragged bikes all over...carried on racks hanging from the rear, the front...they get filthy and always worried about thefts. Met a gut in Az this past winter, that lives in Nelson, BC...5 hrs from me...who builds bike boxes and adds on a few touches.

The spare will be up in the left corner...

That's pretty cool looking....light gauge stainless (for the box) or ????

Ladder's pretty neat as well

Looks nice. Couple of questions/comments:

1-looks expensive
2-weight
3-to me a box like that says something expensive is inside ( to the crooks )

Your bike must be much more valuable than mine. Talked to a guy the other day who is buying a 4500 dollar bike. I would probably lock that one up for sure.

Well how does one measure what's expensive? The RV is a 4x4..so THAT's pricey. My camera gear is worth a bunch. With a capitol B. I can't seem to buy a computer under a grand. Our bikes combined are the same price as the box/ladder and spare mount. So..I am good with that. Also..I am 70...how many more years am I going to be able to do this? I want to be broke when I die.

People steal whatever they are going to steal. If they want into the box...they will. RV's are inviting targets anyway. I don't like it..but,..choices choices..right?

I rode my bike into Washington, DC and got a lesson on values when a "guy" came into the men's room with his bike. This told me everything I needed to know about DC. [emoticon]

That box says to me "Something really worth stealing inside!"

Any plans to relocate the stop, tail, turn signal, and backup lights? From the picture, it looks as though the (very nice) box is pretty effectively blocking them from view from many angles.
