Why?Does the C5 not require saddlebag brackets?I thought they all required them, unless you're using soft-side "throw-overs".And even then, the "throw-overs" will wear the powder coating off your fender carrier braces in about 2 rides with them on there.
Ace, how would you suggest protecting it? Some clear tubing split and wrapped could do it.
It is an Electra frame with a modified swing arm.
That's kind of what I thought. But if the swing arm is modified, it is no longer an Electra frame. It now becomes an G5 frame.
Okay then, new question: What is the C-5 frame going to be like? Is that also an Electra frame, only further modified even than the G-5? Is it all new? Will there be panniers/saddlebags available for it soon?
That's a really good question, cause the Electra frame is kinda.... well, "ugly" over the rear wheel, without the standard seat, but the C5 doesn't appear to be that way. Maybe the C5 is a "classic" frame, or an Electra frame with a different rear 1/4?
