These frames are intended to be basic and lightweight supports for our saddle bags.
As the weight of the bags is carried on the seat we only require the frames to stop the panniers flapping about or contacting the exhausts.
Our approach is to make a frame that can take minor tumbles, be straightened with a pair of hands and a size nine after bigger ones, repaired in a cockies shed and protect the subframe of the bike by being somewhat "sacrificial".
The plan with my set for the big Kato was to keep the luggage system as narrow as possible. To achieve this we set it up to carry a pannier above the muffler on the right.
Supplied with all fittings and spacers required.
