custom sizes no problem
Wow, shopping for panniers and getting some great prices!
just need to think how I would want to mount them and what size to get.
look at latch "P". not sure how it would do with the different height though.
How much to add the hinge?
How much was the top box?
What if i wanted a square step in the inside bottom edge for exhaust spacing?
Thanks for making and offering these boxes.
Ditto on how much to add
Hinge, lock, & some mounting brackets?
These look good so far.
Im in iraq and cant go stare at my bike for hrs which i want to so bad. How will these fit on the stock 2009 R1200GS Adventure saddlebag mounts? Not securing them thats not the issue but i think i remember it not being flat like the back side of the boxes... They look big and rugged which is what i want so im interested....
square notch on the top or bottom? not a problem but would change the price. i am not interested in doing mounts because you have to have the bike present to make them strait and even. and everyone has different racks. as for the hinge and latches, that is different from person to person. i sell these as "no frills" and the price reflects it. if i have to go all the way, the price would be double.
that custom top box was $175. it had to be beveled so his panniers would open.
here's a custom one...
Thank you so much for the reply.
Well, I wasn't asking you for mounts. That is for me.
and I don't want latches provided, that was for people reading the thread.
But I Might be interested in paying the extra for the integrated hinge & maybe not. Some will though.
Unless I get lucky on FleaBay, I am sure these will be my next set of panniers.
i look at everything on a case by case basis. let me know when you are ready.
how about a custom size?please pm me a contact #,i got few Q's.
how do these look ?
Can't go wrong with these panniers
nice job on the mounts and latches but they make your tires look bald.
You're building cases they way I would if I could weld! So a set of your cases, a set of these, http://www.murphskits.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=27_166&products_id=364
and a set of these, http://www.happy-trail.com/Happy-Trails%20Pannier%20Mount%20Kit.aspx
and I'm pretty much set right? Just some hardware for the cases needed. I would rather attach the weather stripping myself so I can take the cases to a powder coater.
thats correct. you would need a set of latches of some kind also. my deal is just boxes and lids. you do the weatherstrip and latch/hinge yourself.
I assume you have some suggestions for the weatherstripping, I can handle the latches myself.
PM me with payment details and we can get em ordered.
Here are the items I used for latches\handles\weather stripping. They've worked great thus far. All items were ordered from www.mcmaster.com
Latch: 1590A14 EDITED. This is the correct Latch\Strike Assembly!!
Weather stripping: 10ft 1120A182
So many options of things to use, but those seemed to just be the right fit for me.
searching for draw latch at mcmaster carr gets you these choices . i recomend the weather strip andrew used above.
your choices on boxes are square bottom or notched bottom, same price. any custom size smaller than the 50 liter, same price.
i will be making boxes next week some time, shipping on thurs or friday.
another pm sent, will need address and shipping charges.
Thanks for the reply Andrew, the less I have to figure out the easier the project will go. What did you use for the handles on the tops of your cases? Are they sturdy enough for tie downs? Maybe some metal strap or similar material on the inside of the lid would reinforce the attachment points?
The handle I used is just a 3" tall 5/16" diameter aluminum piece with #8 screws holding them down. I'd have no reservations mounting anything to the tops of the boxes. That being said, I wouldn't take a ratcheting strap to them and crank em down Here are some pics for you:
PS. They make great seats next to the fire. They get cold initially, then the fire heat warms em up a bit
