pannier question for the airheads

I have a '73 r75/5. It came with the plastic panniers. I am tempted to sell the bike but have not decided just yet. However, I am seriously considering selling the black plastic panniers that came with it. I'm sure they're so old they would leak in a light drizzle. If I keep the bike, I'll figure something out for a pannier system. What is the value of the 2 panniers. Neither of the panniers have cracks or breaks. I can also part with the rack as I would likely make my own as I'm a welder, primarily TIG... So, what are these things worth? If you want to get in touch with an email I can send you photos; I just don't have the time tonight to deal with the hassle of what it takes to get photos on this site. Thanks!

I Seldom post photos on this site, I then have to relearn the process...

That's called a "dumb phone", it just sits there, being a phone. It doesn't even do tricks. Hell the cord is probably so short you can't even drive to work with it and God help you if you put it in your pocket. Who would make such a thing that takes away peoples' ability to have 24/7 access to you and your time?

You can get a pretty good idea of BMW related prices for just about anything by going to the Internet BMW Riders marketplace section.
