what size are your Willie and Max bags I have aset of tour masters that have some nice features,but are no where as big as those and i noticed they had the zip off yoke also ,Denny
The last pic isn't the Willie & Max bags, they are the Moto Pak GTS-60. Not a bad bag. They expand to be even wider than in the pic.
BUT... the zippers have seperated from the yoke
I was able to re-sew more heavy duty zippers onto them (well, just one side, still have to do the other). They have a large main compartment with elastic straps for holding stuff in (they open from the side) and a smaller one on the outside good for maps and other smaller stuff.
All in all, I like them, except for the zipper problem.
This is the best pic I have that shows the Willie & Max bags. They are about 10 years old, so they are sagging a bit now. They are larger than the Moto Pak bags, except for the width .....
is a previous post on the bags.
Hey Hyper, those are good looking supports.
What are the specs on them? ie.
Materiel: Mild steel, or high carbon spring steel, or Stainless?
Diameter looks to be about 3/8 inch. But how long is the bar?
Did you use a stick welder on those little brackets or a MIG?
And lastly, how expensive is that powder coating?
Sorry for all the questions, but you know by now that I`m as interested in how something is made or done as in the finished project.
Ya` all ride safe out there this weekend, now, ya hear.
Thanks OlHoss. They are Stainless, 7/16". Off hand I don't remember the finished length, but guessing probably atleast 2½ - 3'.
I mig (well, flux cored) them and was able to get them powder coated for free, while at my previous job (should never have quit there
They weren't bend with any type of jig, so both sides are a little different. But with the bags on, ya never know. I woulda done a write-up on making them, but did it kinda spur of the moment. Took maybe 10 minutes each, at the most (not including powder coating).
