It's pretty light, actually. The box is aluminum.

I like it, it's quite stout and seals well, it will hiss when you open it up after elevation changes.

Inside was very clean, the foam that it comes with it cut into shape and laid in place, it's held in by the shape of the box. Pull it out and you've got a perfectly clean setup.

Here is another shot that shows it opened up:


and here you see the top lying on the ground. There are six latches, no hinges.

Thanks, it was a fun project. $25 in paint and $25 in decals.
Learned about ABS repair with 'plastic welding' and ABS cement.
Also, was able to paint the seat from blue to black with Duplicolor Vinyl and Fabric spray paint. The seat looked like new when done.

The bike looks very much like a modern bike.

Thanks
Simba

FYI I painted Stormy with white Plastidip.

This is what she looked like when i bought her:
Ah you beat me to the stormtrooper decal!
Looks good! I bet plastidip is a lot tougher than rattle can primer.

Stuck on a fallen tree on a dead end trail in 90 degree heat, no kickstand required today. The river to the right is perfect for fly fishing!
