Top Of The Line Scandinavian Leather Saddlebags

The beauty of internet is to make all vendors close to you, just a click away for an opportunity to check them out and to order, and this wherever they are located around the world. And I had to mention this Swedish workshop mastering the art of leather crafting, offering many bag models in all sizes for all types of bikes, in solo (usually the left side) or dual setup. They all feature a leather covered steel plate to maintain the bag appearance. The outer backside is doubled with leather to guard the bag against chain guard, shock and axle. They speak English, like most Scandinavians, and will also craft custom bags just for you if your bike is built with a very unusual frame or got unconventional shocks or setup. Lejonkulan Lion’s Den. Europeans can also order through distributor W & W.

    How about a single buckle, brown leather, square, that sits on top of the 1936-1964 Big Twins?
    The frame forms a cradle on those frames and the bag can sit securely on top of the battery lid.
    Send me one, bill the mastercard.

    The o.d. dimensions of the isosceles triangle (having two side of equal length, but tapering), frame yoke pouch are 7-1/2″ wide at the back x 7-1/2″ long x 6-1/2″ wide at the top.

    The thickness could go as high as 2-1/2″ at the back (2-1/4″ optimum) with a gradual taper on the side panels to a depth of 1-3/4″ at the front.

    There would need to be a leather strap on each side, towards the front), that would wrap around the frame rail (in even latitude positions) i/2″ below the battery negative tab on the frame, that would connect with a topside *snap (away from paint).

    The whole package will be sitting on top of the two battery rod wing-nuts, the dome of the battery cover, and the two rear fender clamp bolt-ends which will eventually squish-down and add more lateral support for the back of the pouch.

    * Snaps are cool, but the weakest point over time will be the leather under the male-half, and velcro eventually fills with dog-hair and stuff. So it’s an issue. What will the pouch support straps look like after a few yrs? – blowing in the wind – with the entire snap living on the female-side and the male strap left with a hole?

    Really boring. Nothing original here.

    Nice. (Too nice to put on any of my crappy old bikes.) I like the attention to stitching detail and overall look, very understated. Big thumbs up.

    If anything. They have their website set-up pretty good.
    Love the fact you see the bags mounted. Visually well put together site.
