    Default winter project

    Added a HD tour pak with speakers and HD hard bags. I had a set of tsukayu patrol bags on it, but the lids didn't open the right way to work with the tour pak. I tried raising the pak up to allow the lids to open, but it didn't look right. So I got a set of HD bags off of ebay and used the tsukayu mounting brackets, and now it's all good.

    I'll be selling the patrol bags at some point, after I repaint one of the lids due to a big scratch. They are HOK black with 'real fire' flames on the backs (see pic below). Thought I'd put it out there for now, if someone is interested, but doesn't need them 'right now'

    I used a scootwerks mount. Sits on there real nice and is fairly beefy. Pricey though, but it should last.

    Thanks!

    Loopy, looks great! I'm also in Aurora, and hoping eventually to get a tour pack. Right now I've got some primered jumbo strong bags waiting to be mounted, that should happen within a couple of weeks, then just need to get 'em painted. I'm saving up for a Woody's fairing.

    Let me know if you want to ride sometime. Today would have been a good day to ride, if it wasn't for the wind

    you'll either have to make your own brackets or get new ones from tsukayu, because I used them on my new bags. I haven't reassembled them either, since they were re-cleared. To be honest the 'factory' hinges were kinda cheesy, so you'll have to decide if you want to use them or replace them.

    They were on the bike for a only a few months. They won't work with the tourpak


    I can let them go for 400.00. (have quite a bit invested in paint on them, and they're 550.00 primered new)

    jghost will have first dibs since he asked first and I pm'd him about them.

    Thanks, I'll pass. I figured out a different route.
