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...
