No way to determine fees at this time. A lot of it depends on step 1. then 6

Shipping and fees vary wildly I will try to get someone to include our bags in their shipping container. This saves us a bundle on shipping and if the container clears customs as a single shipment we save a lot as well.

1. Determine how many we want
2. Using the information from 1. we get a shipping Quote
3. Collect money for the bags
4. Order bags
5. Manufacture bags
6. Arrange shipping and customs broker
7. Ship bags to Missouri
8. Trans ship them to you.

I'm down for one. At that price I'll put it in the shed and eventually it will fit something. Looks like I could fit it on my RE.

Some customers had requested Solo bags and I had been asking around.Word got out that I was looking for Solo bags so he touched base. Long story short I can get these bags for wholesale which is $25 plus shipping and brokerage fees.
He cannot determine shipping costs until I let him know how many to ship.

If you are interested in taking part in this group buy chime in here. I'll find out the price and take advance orders.

Here are the details:

Description of Material used Outer Shell Construction 4 Layers of Pasted Materials

a) Top Layer of Synthetic Leather

b) Foam Sheet

c) Hard Plastic Sheet

d) Back raised fabric to give it a natural leather inside look

Metal Chromed Buckles, PVC Buckles, Chromed Buttons

It is made to attach to the swing arm with leather belts

. It measures 10" x 11.5" x 4" and comes as a single bag.

This bag is designed to work on the Right side or left unless there is a Right side or left side mounted license plate.

It also works on Harley Davidson Soft ails, Yamahas and Kawasaki

Default Latest greatest update

A quick summary of what we know at present:

Eighteen people are interested. We need another 57 people to put the deal together.

To save money I'll have them shipped via surface vessel. Shipping plus customs brings the price to $28.40 I will have to find out if the shipping cost quoted includes shipping from the dock to Missouri or not. I'll give everyone an update here.

Consider telling your friends?

Thanks

Ozark
