I been working on some new panniers, bit of a cross between my Basic style and my classic style,
My classic panniers were all tig welded.
My basic style were solid riveted.
The new, need a name for these, will be a bit of both and I will now have 3 sizes now not 2 like before.
Small, 450long x 280High x 190Wide about 31lt
Medium 450Long x 380High x 225Wide about 37lt
Large 450Long x 380High x 260Wide about 44lt
All sizes will also have a matching Exhaust size pannier.
Here is what will fit different bikes.
Old v-Strom, 31 + 37lt or 37 + 44lt
new V-Strom 31lt+31lt with cut or 37 + 37 with cut
1190KTM 37lt + 31lt with cut or 44 + 37 with cut
Tenere660 2 x 31 or 2 x 37
Tenere1200 31lt + 31 wit cut or next size ect
BMW GS's normal, whatever size with matching cut pannier. I think most people will work it out.
First sets should be finished next week then there of to the powder coaters.
Price, I am trying to keep these at $1000 for ADV people, powder coated. for a kit, that's pannier frames, panniers and mounting kit. Some of the pannier frames may be in Stainless, there a little more.
Panniers will also have a raised lid matching the bottom and have tie down loops and stainless latches.
Here are a couple of photos of where I am now.
