    Hi Guys and Gals newbie to this site and looking for some help with my nonfango luggage if thats ok. Bought a 2nd hand rack and box but no fittings or instructions Doh! , Just wonderin if anyone has fitted one to their Bird and could give me some advice on what i need, Oh and looking to improve the comfort a bit by fitting some handlebar risers, any info or help would be really helpful, Thanks, Gaz.

    And amazingly I think I might be able to help with the luggage a little too..
    As you proly know the firm went bust about 10 years ago but !!
    I know a man who bought up a shed load of stock from them.. Whether he will spit a kit down or not I do not know but I will be able to put you in touch

    Maybe he would measure the spacers and bolts and I could machine up a set from his info :)

    Alright mate, is it a full set? Panniers and top box?

    This is what I have on (except the top box, it had a big crack in it which unfortunatly got worse so it got binned, don't suppose you could ask the fella if he has an extra top box could you?)

    I have to take it all off hopefully over the weekend to fit a new reg/rec so will try to remember to take some pics if I can find my camera charger.

    you'll have to excuse the messy rusty subframe though. The bike needs a complete strip and redo....
