Need a bag latch

I broke one of mine putting too much pressure on the bag backing out of the barn, I'm hoping someone may have saved an old one for parts. I attached a pic of the bag and latch. Been a while, looks like the site got a coat of paint. Wink

Motobins - motobins.co.uk have them for about the cheapest price I've seen.

Thanks, I'm high bid at $12.00, we'll see if it lasts 3 hours, the one looks right, no idea what the other stuff is.

Haha, that's what I thought. I recognized the one piece but I don't have bags so I wasn't sure about the rest.
Good luck. You never know with Lamontsanfurd auctions. Sometimes you get lucky and get things dirt cheap. Other times people bid up to crazy level prices.

Thanks, if this doesn't go through. I've never had keys, I don't think I've ever even taken the key out of the ignition since I got the bike, one of the benefits of country living.

I rarely have keys to my bags, they are pretty much just decorations as any $0.50 screw driver will crack one open.

I got it, thanks for the lead, I never looked at ebay as I figured the odds of the right search terms getting the right latch were low, guess I was wrong, I need the upper left one in the pic, if anyone has a need for any of the others, they are free for the postage.

Keep in mind that "lamont" is a long time member here and R65 owner, an LS, until recently, I believe. If you're looking for Airhead and old Guzzi parts, if he doesn't have it, or know where to get it, then you don't need it! Wink

I would very much like the upper right hand side latch - I have an early set of krauser bags that are near perfect except for the missing latches - yours would be one down and one to find.

Please let me know if you still have it and we can exchange details by PM
