Saddle bag lid retainers

Bags I got from Jenni were a pain.

My problem was the set rail on the Deluxe. They kept the bag lid from opening fully. The cable mens it has to go past center of gravity to stay.

So, I commenced cutting and welding. Moved them back and down, looked like crap.

AHAAA!!! I remember boat hatch keepers. Springs w a cable inside.

Got some 10" ones and some aluminum stock and went to work.

The lids don't open 90 degrees, but they ar where they look good and usable.

The real pain was undoing the fab work. Plywood fixture helped.


All done.

Where is the open button and do you push the spring so it will bend to close it?

Push the spring.

Had them on boats before, they are rock solid

i see how the bag part would be not seen since they are between the bag&fender but how did you do the lid part? (glue?)

Cable went to a molded in area w 2 screws.

I used those. Of course the centers were different, so a piece of aluminum went there too
