Mini right side bag

Bought the bag on Ebay. Bent up some aluminum scrap I had, gave it a quick poormans black anodizing and mounted up the bag. Good for my key's,cell phone, and wallet. Room for a few other little odds and ends. Face rag and a few allen wrenchs, etc. I put it on the right, because next I am going to bend up some tubing to make a small grab rail for the left side to help lift the bike onto the center stand.

I also wanted a small side bag for a pair of clear-lensed glasses and a place to store my gloves when I'm off of the bike. At Kreaters in Kelowna I found a small leather bag that was perfect and used the straps in conjunction with a couple of zipties fastened through the top of the bag and around the seat rail to keep it low and tight.


Now that I've seen your solution, I'm worried my set up might be rubbing on the fender....

The straps are riveted on the back in about the middle. If you put it on the same style tube mount the city bags use, I think it would flop around. Also not sure how high up that bar is, or how far in towards the wheel, so also not sure where it would actually sit.

I'm planning to cut a aluminum plate, about 8x6. Mount that to the cross bar I made, then rivet the bag to it. That will make it sturdier and easier to use when open.

Thank you for that . I am looking for one that will stay still on the bars but can not seem to find one .. I like the way you have done yours , but i have just had a look and on my Bike the Bars will be in the way , so a rethink is in order ... I may alter one to fit .
Have you noticed we all seem to have the Solo and rack system .

if there is a brand/model name on them I'd appreciate knowing. Been searching the internet and haven't found anything similar.

Bag mount looks good too! I may have to try that myself.
