    Does anyone have any pictures of "old school" luggage (hard bags or soft bags) besides the Vetter and BMW bags? Bonus points if you have hard bags on a caffeinated ride.

    You asked the question that I was going to. I'm working on changing my CB360T into a cafe style bike but I really have the need for some saddle bags. I'd like to see someone with a cafe style and saddle bags and where they ordered them from.

    Here's a set of Bates bags I have in perfect condition. Might be for sale. I'm still trying to decide.

    For a cafe, I'd probably just use a tank bag or even tank panniers like Aerostitch/Riderwearhouse sells.


    Mr Cbear- nice Harley. Someday I want some of those bags.

    Well, it starts at a '66 and kinda goes from there. Tins from a '66, frame titled as a '68 R60, engine a mid '70s R90/6, front end is an '83 R65 and so are the snowflaks. Perches are /7 - I think, it's an R65 master cylinder near as I can tell. Headlight bucket and speedo/tach from a /5. New Denfield solo saddle, new fender rack (getting a clip-on Denfield pillion for it), repop Albert ranblebar mounted mirror. I did a thread when I got it, might dust that off with a new post, you can check out more there. SOrry for the hijack - I love this bike, will talk about it all day.

    This was about bags, right? Luxor Marine repops of Enduro bags - the guy does a very nice job, and the bags are perfect for the /2 imo. They're still on, and I am definitely not a bag man. On bikes, anyway :chace.

    I cant really tell by the pics, but is the snowflake front a recall wheel?
    I cant see the updated ribs in the pics. Just curious?

    I dig Marks bags! Just havent seen enough money at one time to get a set! Looks GREAT!

    I actually have a set of these mounts "NOS" for a Duo Glide / Pan head and this picture just reminded me I had them! Maybe I should buy some repop Bubbles and pick up an old DUO Glide for shits and giggles!

    Note the bump out on the bottom of the bags that fits in the triangular shaped mounts. 1971 BMW R75/5, Hannigan fairing.

    I don't want anyone to think that it's my Harley, just my photo. I don't have the time, knowledge, or money to keep a bike like that.
