Corbin Trunk Box for Indian ChieftainWhen Corbin engineers first saw the new Indian Chieftain, they went directly to work. And one of the outcomes was the new Corbin Trunk Box that features 47 liters of storage – enough to hold a full face street helmet with room to spare.
Fully lockable with a lined interior and color matched exterior, the weather stripped Corbin Trunk Box takes form and function to a new level.Masterfully designed so the trunk looks like an extension of the Indian Chieftain’s factory bodywork, it provides a very clean look and disguises the large storage capacity. Hand painted and finished to coordinate with OEM paint colors, it includes polished aluminum struts and rack for simple installation.The trunk also includes a passenger backrest pad and armrests covered in genuine leather and uses the same Comfort Cell foam as Corbin’s world famous saddles to provide firm, resilient support. Ergonomic design gives a sculpted fit to the body for maximum contact area and good weight distribution. Tasteful diamond stitch pattern adds a nice custom touch. Corbin will gladly coordinate the trunk components to your existing Corbin saddle (if equipped).A note about trunk loading: Corbin’s Trunk Box is constructed of polyurethane material which is extremely durable and strong. However, it is NOT a good idea to load heavy items in a motorcycle trunk. By nature, trunks ride high and too far rearward to handle weight properly. As such, you should reserve this space for lighter, bulky items like helmets, rain suits and laptops. Although it may withstand greater weights, we recommend a maximum load of 10 pounds.Installation is simple and suitable for the average weekend mechanic. Corbin includes a four piece, machined aluminum rack system that integrates with the accessory mounting “spools” on the Indian fender. Corbin components are polished and clear anodized for protection. Complete instructions included.For additional information, visit Corbin.com.
