Handmade Alu Panniers (The Greek Way)

In this thread i'm gonna try to present you a short story about three friends and a plan...
The story began to be written on a rainy afternoon in November of 2011, in a small village in central Greece, when I visited my friend Fotis in his lab to discuss an idea that has long turned my head. To fabricate aluminum panniers for my motorcycle, a Honda African Twin 750 cc.
The hot coffee had been served and my friend was ready to hear my idea. An hour later and after I explained what I wanted to make his response was that we will try to implement the Aluminium Panniers idea.
The next day our friend Panagiotis, who is a designer, was already in front of his computer monitor by taking the design of the panniers.

Phase 1 Design and Development by Panagiotis

Working on AutoCad and after some hours the results was fairly well.

A 35 ltr pannier

Phase 2 Design Patterns by Fotis

and cutting the aluminium parts

Our first panniers is a fact !!!

Phase 3 Βonding

And the result was this...

but....something was wrong and we had to find out what we must re-design and correct...

More in a while...
