How's the wifey doin? Hope she is recovering well.Both Marc and bruce burce are correct, my hinges are not mocked up yet, I obviously have some glass work to do yet. The bike in the pic I believe is called "Orange Juice" and
how I came to contact California Baggers through Shane at A F Customs. I may have have to call for the verbal instructions again when I am ready, I just gave you the general idea
of how they work, and they do work. It may be a week or two before I can get back at it, I will have to be nurse to the wife, she had a new knee installed today.
I wouldn't want a 6'3" 300lb nurse with a mustache..............LOL
She's doing great, thanks for asking. I hope to start making some progress on my build in the next two weeks, I'm off work after tomorrow until next year. I decided that I'm going with latches and release buttons from the RK custom bags rather than actuators for now, for the sake of simplicity and space. Will keep you posted. For those that don't know, the RK custom bags use a push button release on the back side of the bags, they use a cable that runs to the latch release.How's the wifey doin? Hope she is recovering well.
Keep us updated on your bag progress. I'm getting ready to start working on a new set of bags & lids and would really like to rid them of tradional latches. Hoping you get this figured out before I start mine.
Anyways, best wishes for a quick recovery for your wife and have a great Christmas!
That's not the case with the RK custom latches on the opposite side of the lid, the seal height is set on the hinge side during hinge install and latches will seal the other side.The only problem i see with all these designs, if u have a big system or 8"s in bags theres no way these designs will clamp and seal lid to bag tightly with out air leaks, LIKE THE FACTORY DESIGN... U would lose all ur bass. If u run speakers in bags
Use a 50#+ actuator...That's not the case with the RK custom latches on the opposite side of the lid, the seal height is set on the hinge side during hinge install and latches will seal the other side.
The answer is in your question? Lol.. You go over it... I have plenty of times, now there are some that are more like a kitchen table that'll hang up a truck.. Lol..that looks like it'll work well Marc. What happens if you have to go over a speed bump?
