East German Military Surplus Vintage Bicycle Pannier Backpack Pair 60's & 70's:
For sale here is a PAIR of Genuine Vintage East German Military Surplus Backpacks (circa 1960's & 1970's) that I modified to be used as Bicycle Panniers when attached to your bicycle rack.Each bag is custom fitted with an internal black ABS stiffening back panel, giving the bag a tough and flexible support structure for mounting purposes. The stiffening panel is attached using low profile Nickel Plated bolts (for a touch of class) to keep from damaging your valuables inside the bag (like your laptop & iPad).I hand craft and attach two Stainless Steel J-hooks to each bag using low-profile Nickel Plated bolts. I also attach a lower securing strap to each bag using the same Nickel Plated bolt. The J-hooks are rubber coated to keep from damaging the finish on your rack.I will color match each pair, due to slight color variations from bag to bag.Each bag comes with an adjustable shoulder backpack straps, as well as a waterproof rubberized vinyl liner (see pics)The J-hooks will accommodate most racks that use 12mm or smaller diameter bars. Each hook is 1" wide, and they are spaced 7 3/4" apart on center.Backpack Specs:
