Jimbo's Sidecars

I'm not sure but those bags look similar to the stuff that Jimbo makes in Beijing.
He's got a pretty popular website and does some fantastic BMW/URAL/ChanJiang conversions over there.
And he's got a leathermaker too. Good looking stuff.

here's his address:

Golden arrows for me.

Another +1 for Cravens... I got in touch with original owner of my /5, He asked if I wanted the BM toolkit and panniers that had been in His garage since '75 (!), They even have the protective film still on the aluminium banding.. and all f.o.c., what a Guy

You'll find all kinds of great bikes on his website, but no reference to these bags. You can get prices for the bags (and the racks you'll need to carry them) by emailing him at cj_shanghai@yahoo.cn Lao Shao is justly proud of these bags, and I can attest to their durability. If you email him, be aware that his English is rudimentary, but you'll be able to communicate if you keep an open mind. (he has staff with exceptional English who will help when needed.) If you are riding something other than a CJ750, the racks may need modification to fit your bike, but they are very simple steel racks that can be modified easily by any competent welder.

My friend from the 70's had these on his bike - got banged up and put behind a woodshed for years until I found them. Spent some time and money restoring them to current condition ... almost done!




I made up a modified copy of the Craven mounting system, to fit my 2009 Moto Guzzi V7 Classic. Very easy to secure and remove quickly.


Work great! last year - carried heavy stuff, stuffed them, over stuffed them, and almost no effect on the handling.

I get lots of compliments on the look. Just need to fabricate some nice looking limit straps for the lids and I'm finished.
