I see me a brown seat in there Bob. Why you gotta steal my Idea about a desert Bike? I was just think'in about that. About how much would they be? Maybe some RAT PATROL symbols on the tool boxes? Jerry can's instead of Panniers? It'll be a cool project.
Will the panniers be alum or steel? Lockable? Will they work on the earlier bikes too(05 deluxe) or just the UCE bikes?
Thanks for the feedback Bob, I was hoping for a lighter alum version.
That system looks like it could have been lifted off of my Iron Barrel Military and modded to suit the C5. If it is I can vouch for the sturdiness. It has been "tested" and found to give protection in addition to utility. Split vinyl hose applied around the lip of the boxes gives very good weather sealing on mine and stops the rattle too.
Would the panniers work on a G5? What are the interior dimensions of the pannier rack (or put another way, what are the dimensions of the stock metal cans)?Is there some kind of taillight kit that goes with it? Wouldn't the regular taillights be in the way?
