CLAS­SIC BAG­GAGE

Real Classic - - Triumph Speed Twin -

Ro­dark pan­niers were orig­i­nally made of metal and used an ac­tual Tri­umph rear mud­guard as the lid. Craven now man­u­fac­ture these pan­niers in light­weight, durable fi­bre­glass and rather than hav­ing the lock in the lid it is now mounted in the body of the pan­nier, for ex­tra strength. The pan­niers them­selves are not handed. They have stain­less hinges with stops fit­ted to pre­vent the lids from fall­ing and Craven has added an ad­di­tional stain­less wire strap to add an­other layer of sup­port to the lid. The bot­tom fixing is a quick re­lease se­cure push but­ton. The han­dles were orig­i­nally solid but these are no longer in pro­duc­tion, so Craven have used the flex­i­ble metal and rub­ber han­dles that can be seen on their other lug­gage. These lie flat when not in use. Ro­darks of­fer 20 litres of clas­sic lug­gage ca­pac­ity.

Craven is the sis­ter com­pany of Dra­gan­fly Mo­tor­cy­cles. All lug­gage pieces are made in-house and hand fin­ished with lo­cally sourced fas­ten­ings and de­cals where avail­able. Each item is in­spected thor­oughly to en­sure it is of the high­est qual­ity. Any items that do not meet this stan­dard are sold at a re­duced rate.

The cost is £154.95 plus VAT and ship­ping (free UK de­liv­ery). They’re avail­able off the shelf in black, with spe­cial colours on re­quest (usu­ally take be­tween 4-6 weeks for cus­tom or­ders).
