    Tool tubes

    Found some nice tool tubes for mounting on side car or trailer. Maybe even on bike. 12" long and 3-1/2 or 2-1/2 wide waterproof neoprene seal and only 5 or 4 bucks.

    Yep but they do have two mounting flanges to make mounting easier.

    Are they from John Deer for holding owners manuals?

    Those are manual canisters mounted on some equipment. I've got one attached to each side of a special pack basket that I use and put small items in them.

    And I also use a welding tube to carry/store my big can of spray chain lube and an oily rag on long trips. The chain lube can fits right in it and I don't have to worry about the cap getting knocked off in the pannier.

    Huh! I was typing when you put the link up.

    For that price you can't afford to make them out of PVC pipe.

    I orchestrated a group buy of those things a long time ago when I had a TW200 and was looking for more storage. AgriSupply only carried the small size back then and I wanted the larger ones so I had a couple of cases shipped over from China. Probably still have a few of them stashed away. I use one on my Super Sherpa instead of the tiny stock tool tube and at some point I'll probably find a place to mount a couple more. They hold a 1.5-liter MSR fuel canister nicely and the Sherpa's gas tank is tiny.

    They work great for holding my chain lube and other small stuff.
