    I have not seen one like that in a long time. Someone had one on an airhead that went to a lot of rallies in the late 70s in the Midwest. We called it the 'Porta-Potty'. His was white, IIRC, and his name was Dave. That's all I have.

    I love Craven's... these are the Comet's. I have another set of these to go on something, maybe my A65 Lightning.

    Wixoms on my T3...I bought them in fairly sad shape off an old Triumph, primarily because they came with the original brackets.

    Had fun reworking them, although I'm no expert in fiberglass.

    More groovy '70s-'80s gear on this CL offering. Flat-top bags look familiar but I don't recognize them. Shoei?

    I have never seen these bags before today. Anyone know the origin of these cuties?
    Perfectly sized for the R27 in the basement IMHO.

    Edit: Found videos of this bike on You Tube posted from Asia. They are not frenched around the rear shocks. Upon closer inspection they appear to be oval wash basins or roaster lids welded along the flange. Simply Brilliant!
