Hello my dear Vmax friends. Today I turn to you from afar, from Hamburg in Germany. How big must the desperation be, you ask yourself, that this guy contacts us here. Yes, I admit, I'm desperately looking for the original saddlebags for my Vmax 1700. In any case, I'm only looking for items that are in very good condition, preferably new. Whether I'll be more successful here than in Germany, I have no idea, but I'm not giving up hope. beste regards from Carsten

Welcome . How many other VMax sites have you tried ? The bags turn up for sale once in a while , but don't last long. Be ready when it happens if you just have to get a set.

Actually, I'm only in another forum in Germany, but my search goes through Facebook and ebay.

I have a set for sale on this site. The outer skin (vinyl only) has a small tear that could be repaired. Or, they could be reskinned at an upholstery shop. It is true, they only come up every 6 months or so. I will "bump" my listing so it shows up at the top of the classifieds.

That's super interesting, can I email you here privately?

You may and already have. I will try to take some photos of the bags today. The only damage on the bags can be seen in the photos of the bike with the bags on. It is a small tear in the vinyl above the metal trim cover. Other than that, they work great and look good. I think they finish off the look of the Gen 2.

I almost had the bags, he sold them for $300 plus $100 in freight. However, there was no shipping to Germany in the auction. So I asked. The moment he replied that he would have sent it to Germany, someone else bought it immediately. I was so angry, believe me. The bags were brand new and even the small rear bag was included! So there is still luck and I will definitely not pay 1000 dollars for these things, at some point there will be another opportunity, you just have to be able to wait and see.

Next time just buy them first. If the seller won't ship to you, he will refund your money
