Default Re: Slow project, so in the mean time...

Thanks Map. I have considered wooden saddle bags as well. My dad was a cabinet builder and made awesome stuff while I was growing up. I have the ingenuity from him to find efficient ways and build simple objects.

With a few measurements and a hacksaw, I came up with a symmetrical shape and a refined bracket to account for the brake caliper (resulting in asymmetrical hardware) really brings out the simplicity of the materials and functionality in an artful way. I will finish with gloss black struts and dark mahogany stain for a subtle addition of nature to my bike. Now in the woods I will fit in better with the trees.

Forest found 4stroke... Walmart bike.. I can work with it.
