Got back from Africa on Friday and installed the new Cee Baily Windscreen and Happy Trails Cascade Panniers yesterday. Now the Wee is an Enduro-Sport-Cruiser-Tourer - yeah, a Quad Sport.... :thumbup:

Before the new additions yesterday.



After adding the bags and windshield. Windshield is a 15 minute job and I was kind of worried about the frame and bags with what I had read about the Happy Trails system. There was no mismatching of holes or anything. Quality of the product was top notch and an easy installation. About an hour and a half to install the frame and pannier bags - everything fit perfect. Just leave bolts loose until you have everything on and then tighten everything down. Actually took longer for me because I had to stop now and then because of the heat....but I am VERY pleased with the way everything went together.

The final product - a Quad Sport...hahahaha.

I have a similar Cee Bailey screen, and the happy trails panniers... my only gripe with the screen is that it blocks too much wind, and while I'm not buffeted I also don't get much of a breeze across my torso and helmet in summer. Small problems to worry about, though.

The panniers were mounted by p/o, and I think they are fantastic.

Looks good... enjoy!

Very nice setup. How much do the locks protrude on the inside of the panniers? Any chance of a picture?

Thanks

From the title of your post I thought you'd added an extra set of wheels!

Maybe training wheels is what I need so the Wee won't be inclined to take so many naps...

BobbyLee, here are some shots of the lock on the inside. There are two fasteners on the front and back and the keylock in the top/center. The lock on the inside does not go past the bottom of the box top. Extends down about a half inch.

In China, that bike right there would be used to carry fi'teen people with their lunchboxes into town. Maybe even a baby in a paint bucket swingin' on the back.

Yesseree.

Looks like a job well done! I had the same experience mounting my HT's, I did fiddle around fitting the heat shield. Some guys take it off and leave it off but I wanted to leave it on.

I had heard negative things about mounting the HT racks but a little common sense go's a long way.
