I need a trunk!

I had a Wompus Rack made for my 1700 Classic. It's a solid powder-coated rack. I need to find a decent trunk with a passenger backrest that I can mount. Any suggestions? I am wary of ebay stuff.

Givi hard trunk 50L has an optional backrest pad that screws into the trunk. I used one on the Yamaha GTS 1000 I used to have worked OK. Not cheap but it is one solution.

I picked up one of those cheap trunks off of Ebay. Something like $59.00 if I remember right. 9 months later its still working fine, no cracks nothing broke.

Pretty Nice for the price! The listing indicates that it would fit on my Nomad but I am not sure how since it appears the existing back rest/sissy bar would get in the way of the trunk pad. Did you make any modifications to make it fit on yours?
