Saddle Bag Supports

I lost one! I just got everything back together & was out riding this weekend checking everything out. Found a small oil leak, Fixed It! Great. Went to put my bags on when I got home & one was gone. Oh well, the one thing I didn't think about checking. Oh! and by the way I really can't back track. I put in a rough 100 mile round trip! Maybe you have what I'm looking for. The brackets I had (which is now bracket, lol) were triangular in shape. One bolt to hold them on by a hook more than a hole. Of course I wouldn't be against a new cheep set. I'm going to see if I can fabricate one. But for the right price it might not be worth the time! Thanks, me.

Would have looked something like this.

Bummer
I don't recall ever seeing ones like that before. (I take it that you drew that one in?) All the ones I'm familiar with have two mounting points.
Good thing the lost one didn't get caught between the tire & the swingarm!!
Are they (well, now.... Is 'it') steel or aluminum? I might be able to get the material you'd need to make another if ya need it.

Thanks, but I'm sure I can find some thing at one of the local hardware mass production overpriced public shopping faciliies (Lowes/Home Depot lol). Trickiest part will be hammering out the mounting section. Everything else is just bends! & Yes I put that in. I didn't have any pics in my file & I'm at work! (Ops! Company Time.)

Talking Un.Freeking.Real!

I was riding home last night when along side the road I saw something shiny. Why it caught my eye I don't know. I pondered, "Could that be... nawww". So after I got home, I decided it's only 2 miles back up the road. Yeah, curiousity got the best of me. So I went back out to where I saw the shiny thing. Un.Freeking.Real! It's my lost saddle bag support. I road over 90 miles easly that day and it fell of less than 2 miles from my house. The only down side to this story is, Yup! I've already bought new ones off ebay. I contacted the guy after the auction closed. Nobody bid on his supports, So I sent him an offer You get the rest. Oh well, Maybe I'll like them Better!
