Correct snap connecters for WD M/C panniers

Recommended Posts

I am having a most enjoyable make, producing a pair of WD pattern canvas panniers for my Triumph 3HW, but I am slightly stuck on the snap connectors that are fixed to the leather corners that go over the pannier frames and snap the bag to the frame.

Anybody know the correct name and size of these fastenings so I can order some?

 

Thanks..........Gareth

I used brass pop studs that are widely available in various sizes, eg on eBay.  Just a case of measuring up which ones you need.

Where did you buy your canvas Gareth?

I simply bought mine of EBay, but it is too light in weight, I suspect the originals were thicker.  However it is a good practice piece.  Somewhere I have a dead khaki bell tent, with several good panels, which would be right in weight if slightly brown in colour.   By the time you have rounded up all the fittings and materials, I doubt if you have saved much over the Indian made repro's, but mine will be unique, because I made them.  If I ever find that tent I will make some more.

Frank Brown makes nice pannier bags with the correct weight canvas. I'm sure he's friendly enough to advice you Jan. Mention my name if you want.
