Mess Bag Driving me nuts

Hello, I have posted about on this forum how I want a surly x-check SS I don't think I will have that kinda dough in a long time! so I am thinking getting a used bike like this one http://grandrapids.craigslist.org/bik/175330126.html idea because I am getting tired of having a mess bag I want something I can strap my crap to also I am tired of having to worry about my bike getting swiped 850 is allot to lose. If something like this gets swiped then I am just screwed I will need to take public transport back home ideas thoughts

Looks decent and it's cheap and you can always ditch the parts and re-build the frame if you end up liking the ride. I can't see the eyelets for a rack in the pics. Does it have any mounting points for a rack?

List doesn't say I am going to give this guy a call first thing in the morning and see if it is still available if it doesn't have a rack I could always do the P-clip attachment and not worry to much about the frame paint
