SCOOT SADDLE BAGS (C-70's especially)

Hey guys, i have a request. I have a 1982 passport. I am on the lookout for saddlebags. The only thing is, I have terrible taste. I mean bad...To give ya an idea, I have to take pictures of my clothes on my phone so that I can get dressed when my wife isn't here. I can't match a dang thing and everyitme I look at myself, i think i look fine and all my friends laugh at me, even male friends. You don't even wanna see me at the gym, I have been asked to leave or change.

Well I want to see bags on mopeds. I prefer those on a C 70 because I would like to see how you mount them. (add braket, staples, chewing gum etc....) Anyway all your pics would really help. If you can, point me to the web site where you got your bags too. thanks guys.

Here is a pic of my bike..... with no bags :(

I think if you mount up some stays on the rear rack
lots of things might work

I am working on this problem too for my c70
one of mine has some cool rear pannier baskets but I can't find any of them new for sale.

Baskets seem to fit this bike pretty well visually speaking.

when i get time I am considering making some wooden panniers. I think that would look pretty cool.

I fastened a piece of wood across the rear rack and to that I screw down a milk crate. Between that and the Honda basket on the the front I can carry alot of groceries. The milk crate unscrews in a minute if I want the sleek Petula Clark look.

Beco,

I forgot who recommended this bag, but Walmart has the Plano soft fishing tackle boxes for about $14.00. The nice thing about these is you get a bunch of plastic storage trays good for your work bench as a bonus. I just used an old piece of sheet rubber on the inside to keep it's shape and fastened it to my rack with holes punched through the rubber and bag, with heavy duty cable ties.

The other alternative is to get some medium sized bicycle touring bags. The ones pictured are Norco's I've used since 1987. I don't know how many loads of groceries and other things I've carried with this set, but for about $38.00 back then these bags were a great deal. REI probably has something similar.

I used one of these bags on my recent trip up to Skamokawa, they held up fine despite the sun faded tops and missing elastic tiedown. They will require some sort of rack with a side support, to attach to.

These aren't going to be the latest, greatest, ADV gear, and they're far from being fashion statements, But I'll take useful over farkled anyday.

I can find no saddlebag mounts made for the C70. I would have to guess you will have to find a set of bage you like and make custom mounts as these probably were. Unless it is a mockup made in photoshop, the grids are plain to see in that photo.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Ebay. I bought a very similar (same shape, size and chrome bar--different color) universal set of hard bags off Ebay for a Honda Rebel. Its a common design. However, I eventually sold them because they were substandard, even by cheap Chinese standards. The plastic was pretty thin, though it did not break. The real problem was that they rattle all the time, the chrome rusted easily and eventually a couple of the cheap welds on the chrome bar vibrated themselves apart. I repaired the welds, but they looked bad so I sold them and got some leather bags.

You can find much nicer made versions--just look, even Ebay has them along side the cheap (made, not always priced) ones--but you're going to have to pay for quality.

Also, you'll probably have to bend or even make new brackets for these universal fit bags. None I've seen are truly universal. However, that is really easy to do. The brackets in that photo look simple enough and are probably even cheap if you pay a shop to do it.

I thank you both for your input... as far as the mounting... i would "make it work" I just want to find bags like these. I have been looking... even on the 88db website from the phillipines. I haven't seen hard bags like these in a scooter size. I now have a front basket ... a nice one I got at an LBS see here
I will be on the look out. If anyone here has hard plastic bags here and wants to unload them let me know.

These are very close to what I had on the Rebel. The Rebel is small and I something that fit it might look right on that old Honda.

This is a little different and used, but probably better made:

The one's I had on the Rebel claimed a similar thickness. In reality, 7 inches was probably from the mounting bracket to the outside chrome bar.
