This is the best thing I've seen so far. You can get just the saddlebag brackets.
A friend gave me a set of Nelson-rigg SPRT-40 saddle bags as a gift. It seams i cannot put them on my 2008 tw200 because they lack any structure on the tail. I have the cycleracks.com tail rack and i think i will need to attach more steel to it in order to make it work. Does anyone have any suggestions here?
I seem to recall that lots of folks have modified the cycleracks to add just enough metal to hold the bags out from the wheel/chain/muffler. You just need a confident welder friend/contact. Improvisation is the name of the game. Tom

I am using the above brackets and they work fine for my Cortech bags. I will eventually do some water proof dry sacks.

goldenhtr What material is that? I have a full wood shop, that looks like something i could do out of ply or something but i am concerned about the weight.

Thank you all for the input. You have given me some ideas.
$3.21 worth of 3/8" bar stock (8 foot stick). Approximately 4 hrs of bends with a vice and some torch heat along with 4 welds. I figured on buying TinmanTims setup eventually here but these are working great for now.7313 065.JPG
