Thanks guy's, i was going to just make up pannier frames and bolt them to the old rack but after dropping the bike at a standstill and snapping of the left hand grab handle i thought a one piece setup like this would be able to take the abuse better. Will post some pic's of the Pelicans fitted as soon as i get my hands on them .........
