$48 apiece with no latch locks. Shipping to my house came to a grand total of $105.

Personally, I'm just glad we have options for good quality, USA-made cases for our moto trips.
Are you talking about the padlock holes on either side? I'm confused, I've never seen a Seahorse with a keyed lock built in. Pictures?

locks

The Seahorse has two plastic twist cams in each latch that can be replaced with a core lock.

So, how are people mounting these to their racks? Using kits for the pelican cases such as are available from caribou, or going custom?

I will be building my racks to fit the cases.My wife wants me to make them so the cases come off and can be carried in to the hotel room.

Never seen these, that's neat.

As for racks, mine is custom made. About $50 worth of steel and welding wire. The whole rack/bag setup cost me about half than what a set of commercially available bags costs, and works just as well.

Just ordered some from the site mentioned above! I'm also thinking about making a custom rack; for you who have done your own, are you using any kind of break-away hardware a la caribou, or just bolting straight through the bottom of the case?

I mounted mine with 4 clevis pins and trailer hitch pins. Takes about 30 seconds to get one on/off.
