Hello Britfan , I would think the top shock bolt and the muffler mounting frame are the attachment points for the saddle bag frame. I thought someone said that Bonneville type would fit ?
Hi,

Yes Bonneville 'city' bag fits as per your suggestion.
Liiiiitle bit of a bend required on rack for lower bolt.

I use bag on the Scrambler an 961.

*serving suggestion only

Hello , Can you run a bag and frame on each side on the 961 ? And is this Genuine Triumph part or aftermarket ? Thanks for your feedback .

Thank you for the photos, gentlemen. Tony. Hideki's system looks claean. Is it custom or a kit. I like those mounting points and the bag sits nice and high. Hideki, did you make that system or is it store bought? For me, that looks like the way to go.

My mounting hardware isn't sold.
One off was made at an ironworks in the town.

Bonneville 'city' bag is good.
The goods don't enter my bag so much.

Sorry but why would anyone put saddle bags on a cafe bike? I don't get it.

Its compulsory if you wear large turn ups on your blue jeans, wear a chequered shirt, have facial hair and some kind of pony tail.

Because I only have 2 old 49 HP Bonneville and the Norton. Nice to carry some essentials if I do a long haul. I do the backpack thing, but nice to have a bag............aww.....screw it. The wife said I can have a Harley. Nevermind :)

I like the person who doesn't have a bag in styling way, too.

But it's also important to buy a cookie for the family in a gift at touring and return. :wink:

Exhaust doesn't seem to be original stock. Do you have a modified or new exhaust?

Hi,
Genuine Triumph acc5wssory.
Can run on both sides (obviously Triumph have a left and a right version).

Please note: Need to bend bottom of bracket and unless you fix the supplied fastener on bike. The rack and stiched pocket on bag is supporting the weight

But for me works great.

That's probably because you are new to motorcycling.

You get the new bike, whatever it is, ride it around some and then realize you want to go somewhere new with it.
Somewhere new might be a highway thru the Rockies 1100 miles away. Put some panniers on the bike and go.
When you get to that twisty highway, you are riding a bike that has some Sport to it, it's not some 900 lb bagger that scrapes it's floorboard at 20 MPH on every corner and scares the living shite out of you!

Something like that :mrgreen:

It is surprising what can be carried on a bike and how... If you have the required mindset...

Very interesting setup . What are you running for turn signals ? They look very small. Is the tank bag secured with a lock ring on top of the gas tank cap ?
