I am sure you know already but the stitching on the joints goes on the outside of the bag.

Regards the question from mississippimadman these canvas panniers were originally fitted in the rear pannier racks on the Armstrong. Some guys have modified the old Armstrong pannier racks or had a set made to fit on the MT 350e, 500e and 604e.

Image Right folks first bag made up, Now i know why they retail so expensive what a pig to make !!

some of the stitch lines and trim spacing needs a little refining but hopefuly the pics will give you a good idea

Prices will be slighty more due to finding cotton webbing instead of polyester but i think it works much better and looks in keeping

The canvas is (heavy duty) water proofed and meets fire proofing regs so hot exhast shouldn't be a problem

**Please note to get full waterproofing properties the bag will need to be pre-soaked in cold water then air dryed at room temp before use**

Prices are confirmed at √ā¬£42 each + √ā¬£5.00 pnp
