    I have a set of old Bates saddlebags that I am not going to use. Free if you pick them up.
    They are in good shape but one has been repaired on the bottom. The locks work and have mounts from the previous bike.
    Let me know if you are interested. I can send some pics if you want. Located long island new York.

    I've got a set of old ( I think 1950's era) Belgian army radio bags made out of OD green canvas I use. Might have spent $120 on the 2 in perfect NOS condition. Soaked with enough cosmoline that they are nearly waterproof and the bags must weight 5-6lbs a piece empty.Canvas is 1/8" thick and they have multiple layers in places like the bottom. They survived a high side crash with no damage in 2014.

    Hard bags I like the looks of vetters or samsonites.
