Well, winter has me thinking of spring, and has got me to splurge on the bike. LOL!
I've had a couple days off work, and have (for better or worse) been hitting Ebay.
In my quest to have saddlebags, I've bought the following items...
Turn signal relocation brackets for $20.
Genuine, Brand New Kawasaki Saddlebag Supports for $69. (needing a few nuts and washers)
Frontier II 'Chubby' Saddlebags for $250 (brand new) These had a $275 'buy it now' but he took a $250 'best offer' and free shipping.
So... For $355 (with shipping) I've got some really nice leather bags ready to go. The absolute cheapest I could find the bags ALONE was $375 shipped. Plus, all parts are brand new, except the turn signal relocaters. I'll have to add a few screws, washers, etc... but that's no big deal. I'm happy, as what I've paid is close to half of full retail.
There are a set of hard bags on Ebay that look like they have an extremely strong mounting setup. I had never seen a set like them before. They are specifically for a VN750. Anybody know anything about them? FYI, I am not in the market. My wallet has taken enough of a hit! $149.99 + $40 shipping. Complete, ready to go, with keys. I -almost- bought these.
Now... If I could find a rear rack for a good price...
Spline Lubed front/rear
ignition pickups gapped
Relocated MOSFET R/R
Pilot Screws at 2-1/4 turns
Slipstreamer S-08 Windshield
Oversized Pirelli Front Tire
PW50, XR50, TTR90, XR100, DT175 (2-smoker), CRF230F, XR250R (dual sported), XR400R 4 KIDS, LOL!
