Phoenix- borrow a /6 or /7

Anybody in the Phoenix, AZ area have a NOT pristine /6 or 7 bike we could borrow for awhile? We want to start building panniers for this model, (finally) but don't have a bike to do the mockups with. We could do pickup and dropoff if it's not too far away. Thanks,
Neil

I have a R90S that will not be needing for awhile. I will be restoring her and you are welcome to borrow her. Do we get two sets for the trouble?

btw.. I have owned 6 sets of Jesse Luggage and I have a set for my
R100GS that I haven't installed yet.

We are still looking for a NOT pristine /6 or 7 bike we could borrow for awhile. No miles will be put on the bike. We won't even start the engine. Just need it to do mockups and work out deminsions. Pickup and return provided.

Hi Al (is it actually Al or someone for the biz),

Hope you are doing well. Haven't talked to you in a long time...

I see that most of your systems sell for over $1000USD. Do you plan to make a system for the post-70 twin shock BMW's in that price range? It is getting close to 20 years now that I've been making mounts for the 70-84 BMW twins. I find riders/owners of these machine to be rather 'frugal' in the pannier/mounts world and high dollar systems can be a hard sell.

Carl

I offer guess .. borrowing a bike to make money does not equate to
discount or given a set of bags.

Hi Carl, I'm Neil, someone else for the biz. Thanks for the advice. We're aware of the lack of financial rewards for making these bag systems. Al's been wanting to do these bags for at least 11 years that I know of, and the stars
and planets are starting to align, so we're trying to go for it. (as long as the world doesn't end on the 21st). Good luck in the coming year, and again, thanks,
Neil
