So i wanted to add saddle bags to my 150cc scooter. I looked around online at various sources but the prices turned me off. Afterall all most of them appeared to be similar to messenger bags sewn together and then laid over the bike with the seat holding the straps in place. I decided at that point i could make a set myself by finding two messenger type bags and sewing them together.
This will be a fairly short instructable as there is not much to it.
Items you will need are:
Messenger type bags (found mine at a army/navy surplus store)
Sewing machine (or sew by hand)
Cardboard (optional depending on bag style and prefrence)
I got my bags at a local army navy surplus store. This particular store had a huge selection of bags. It took me a while to decide on a set. The ones i went with were $14.00 dollars each plus they were on sale at 40% off. So i spent about $20.00 on this project all together. Really you can use any bags you want as long as they will realistically fit your bike and your needs.
