My friend from the 70's had these on his bike - got banged up and put behind a woodshed for years until I found them. Spent some time and money restoring them to current condition ... almost done!




I made up a modified copy of the Craven mounting system, to fit my 2009 Moto Guzzi V7 Classic. Very easy to secure and remove quickly.


Work great! last year - carried heavy stuff, stuffed them, over stuffed them, and almost no effect on the handling.

I get lots of compliments on the look. Just need to fabricate some nice looking limit straps for the lids and I'm finished.
