WTB Hobbit Rear Baskets

Anyone got a set of OEM Hobbit rear baskets? I got a front basket and I'm trying to look fly so I gotta have the rear baskets to match it. I'm looking for the ones pictured here: (edited)

I may be mistaken but I bet the baskets pictures are aftermarket. I'm sure any decent set of baskets will work and look good if mounted correctly.

I guess I'm not entirely sure either, but it was my understanding that these baskets were sold through Honda. All of the marketing for the hobbits with baskets feature the same set at least. I like the slant on the front of the rear baskets, which is why I'm looking for these ones specifically

There are baskets made specifically to bolt up to hobbits and express(all the ones I seen are slanted) but most rear baskets can be modded pretty easy to work.

Then somewhere a decent pair must exist. Good hunting.

Thanks for the offer, but I'm gonna hold out for Hobbit ones for a little bit longer at least

The Hobbit baskets are designed specifically for that model. The larger top tapers to a small bottom to compensate for the fucked up geometry of that subframe to limit interference when pedaling.

It offers more form than function - more or less just a fashion accessory. They are not very robust and most that have survived are pretty severely damaged. Best to get detailed photos of the fastening brackets because fixes can look fairly ugly.

I love the quest. Hope u score a pristine set.

Thanks for the info! Frankly I want them more for looks than practicality anyway, so their weird shape doesn't bother me. I have a picture of the bracket since I bought the front basket without realizing the bracket for the bolt mount was broken off.
