Thanks, DonBenito, glad you found the write up useful. I'm very happy with the 2 sets of these bags we've got. I did the wastepaper basket mod as well. Long distance rider, I checked my local WalMart for the Servalite 5.2 gal/ 20 liter basket. They had them in stock in both black and white. It comes with a pop up lid, just throw that part out.
