    How are ya,

    I haven't added to this post until now, but yet again I'm another guy that was done by Konvoi, pitty I didn't see the ones above, they look class. I placed my order last summer 2012, I have to say they responded to my mails and like you I got a set of boxes which I'm so happy with. But again like you I was left with no brackets and no frames. I've phoned, e-mailed and got the romanian embassey here in Ireland to make contact, but unlike you, I've had no reply.

    It such a pitty, the boxes are so nice, the last word I had was that a car was comming to Dublin, Ireland and that my frames and boxes were in it. Guess what, never arrived.

    So please, never go near these guys, they are thieves. pure and simple!!

    Sorry to hear that there are others. When is the last time you called him? I am going to start calling him again just because. I would be interested to see if the number you have is the same as mine.

    How are ya?

    The number I'm using is 0040747842490, I'm mailing office@konvoi.ro and lauramarginean1980@yahoo.com

    Before I paid I called to make sure I was talking to the right person via the e-mails because I mailed the office, but got the reply from the Laura address. I got through no bother that day. But not any more.

    It's such a shame, the boxes I got are top class, I love them, but without the frames and brackets it's just a pain and money I haven't got to waste. I'm trying to find someone around me here who can make some for a good price, but it will take me a good while to save the cash again. It took over a year to pay the first time for the set. I had planned to save and buy the top box this year, but no way now.

    But hey, it's good to get something, but I'm guessing that how this place operates. Send them something, that way lots will go away without making too much bother.

    I don't understand why they wouldn't put them in with the boxes when they posted them.

    Hope you have better luck then me getting your stuff. I'm got going to stop trying. No way should a thieving fu** like this be allowed to continue. I hope the fuc**r gets what's coming to him.

    So Istvan's out of the business- according to his wife? Something smells fishy about that.

    See my previous post- Daniela is identified by the local Romanian police site as his wife, and her picture is also on his stunter site.

    I guess she's not dead.

    Btw- who's Laura Marginean? I can't figure out where she comes in...

    He isn't put of business anyway, over Christmas he had the site updated to say 20% discounts. I don't know who Laura is, it's just the mail address I was getting contacted by him. I'm guessing like any thieves out there they have many ways of getting your cash.

    Guys, I guess it sucks and while I was one of the lucky ones that got the two box set for cheap, you get what you pay for. Corner braising at all 8 corners per box leads to top fractures. Will spend a whole day sorting with stiffeners, JB weld and rivets.

    Quality is actually total crap. Should have bought happy trails or touratech.

    Cheers

    It has been a while since I last posted on this forum ( Nov 15 2012 ), but I must say that Daniela at Konvoi did get in touch by email and reviewed my situation in December. We emailed back and forth for about a month and a half, reviewing the order and the proof of payment, etc. She finally promised to do something about it. In her last email, dated January 4th 2013, she wrote that she was ready to send the completed panniers. That is the last I heard from her. Nothing since then. I am now in limbo again, without news about what is happening. It is now day 347, or 11 months and 7 days since I paid / placed my order with Konvoi. The lack of sustained communication is the most aggravating thing. Hopefully, there will be a positive resolution in the near future. Only time will tell.

    This is another one Romanian company works with panniers, racks, etc and they are really professionals.
    I do not want to advertise them, but i have to say that i made an order, rectangles and mounting kit to built racks myself and in 2 weeks time delivered at home. I paid by paypal. Alex is the guy who replay the e-mails and he is very helpful.

    It is now exactly one year since I ordered and paid for my cases from Konvoi. Still waiting. Wow. Way to go, Konvoi. Shame on you.

    Those look good, too bad they don't have anything for the Tenere 1200.
