Dain's custom KP-2s are shipping today...
Ron's order starts tomorrow.
Ron's custom width KP-1s gettin' ready for an early morning TIG session...
Ron's heading to the powder coater this morning...
Ron's KP-1s back from powder, assembled, and shipping out tomorrow...
John's KP-3s going together. I'm hoping to ship these tomorrow as well.
Effective immediately - I will no longer be making beveled lids on KP-3 style panniers. Furthermore, lid welds on KP-2s and KP-3s will no longer be ground flush.
The new style KP-3 lid is on the left; the old style on the right. Why?
For added strength and durability. Plus, they look better because of better fit-up. They are 1 1/2" deep, so with gasket, they are still at 2" +/-.

And I finally scrape together enough pennies to order a round of summa deez!
Polyurethane domed decals with translucent ink printed on a reflective background. Upgrade, upgrade!

Mike's Buell build starts Thursday.
I like the new latch.
Love the slide hinges, wonder why you stopped production on those! Would love a pair of them.
Thanks, Mike. That latch has been available all along and is the same one used on the very first set for JVB.
I want to produce those, but I need about $1500 worth of tooling to do it.
When I made them for my KLR, I had to manually make the slot, which took a good bit of time and was very imprecise. I don't want to offer that until I can reproduce them accurately and efficiently. In due time, I hope.
Got to say, I've been doing metal fabbing for over 30 years and you are doing great work. I'm impressed. If I get a bike that needs panniers I'll definitely look you up.
Wow! Thanks!!! Keep me straight if you see me screwin' up. No, seriously!
The guy I bought my corner notcher from has also been doing metal fab for over 30 years and I learned a lot from him just by talking to him when I picked up the tool. I try to learn as much as I can from guys who know the craft. I've really been enjoying figuring everything out. I feel I still have a lot to learn, though.
..getting there one project at a time!
Beautiful work. If I need panniers in the future, I'll be giving you a call.
Thank you very much!
LOL - Good gracious! Look how huge those things look on my little Buell!
Looks like fantastic work. I can't wait to pick it up after I shake this cold!
Those are some serious bags. Have you checked the cornering clearance?
I haven't picked up the bike yet (fighting a cold or flu or something) and I don't think Kirk has ridden it. It's a pretty tall bike, though. I suppose if it doesn't lean enough, I can redrill the holes and relocated the bags easily enough. I don't ride very aggressively anyhow.
It's hard to judge from the pic but it looks more a matter of width then bag location. Anyhow definitely worth checking because even if you don't ride aggressively a bump in the road mid-turn can also reduce cornering clearance.
