making my own quick release saddlebags

Postby ram11397 » Fri May 01, 2015 9:38 pm



Ok i been thinking on this for a while trying to check air in rear tire is a pain,
so i am thinking of making quick release saddlebags.... in the bottom two bolt holes use screw with rubber cone shape stoppers to support bag and in the two side bolts using clevis pins, springs, rubber grommets/washers should hold it tight will try this and post pictures
