Matching panniers for the '12 Wee

I have previously provided photos of my bike with the large Touratech zega pro cases. Well, I got around to taking them apart and painting them to match the bike. Enjoy the photos!!! Hopefully I will get some better pictures this weekend as I am heading out to WV. Also, they aren't done yet; The lip around the cases where the lid and case meet will be black soon, I just didn't have time to get that done for this weekend.

I have the standard 41 & 35 litre zega panniers, and it works out at 43 inches wide.

Not painting mine though.

Nice job customizing your bike the way you want it.

I think it looks great!
I may not be a fan of the steamer trunk luggage but it does look good.
Now, someboby do this with smaller (Givi) cases. I have soft bags which don't take painting too well.
As an uncle of mine used to say "you done good!"

First off, I have yet to measure how wide it is, but I have meant to. Oop North John has the standard Zegas and these are the Zega Pros, so I will try to measure them for you this week.

I work at a Autobody and Service Shop, so my painter mixed up the paint. Any bodyshop should be able to do that.

Also, no better photos from this weekend. I was in a hurry to get out there Saturday and it was raining during my return on Sunday.
