He does, but some are in better shape than others. If you are okay with cleaning, and repainting, then he has them! Or at least always has when I've been there.

I was there two weeks ago and he had cans in various sizes. Didn't see any of the big mermite containers some use for side bags though.

I'm looking for smaller cans for side boxes on the old XL I don't want any thing big.

Since it's looking like the XR is going to take longer then planed to rebuild I'm going to make the XL a little more comfy to ride. I'm actually going to look at if the frond and rear suspension will mount to the XL off the XR

30 cal cans

I've seen people use the 30 cal cans on DS bikes. Just enough room to store just what you need. No fancy smancy BS . They work great.

Her reflexes should be quicker than the guy on the back, and since he is allowing her to drive, I'm guesing she has him beat in good judgment. But still...
