Seat Bag and Other Stuff
I finally got a seat bag to hold some water bottles. Finding stuff for a trike is not as easy as for a 2 wheeler, not much to hang it from. This is a Fastback seat bag made for a solid recumbent seat. So I made a bracket for the back of the seat to hang it from and it works great.
The bracket is made from 1/2” PVC tubing and parts. First a tee fitting, cut to fit the seat bracket (2), then a few inches of PVC tubing cut to fit (2), then a 45 degree fitting (2), then a PVC electrical conduit 90 degree piece, cut to fit. I use hose clamps to attach it to the seat. It was a little loose fitting for the bag, so I added the pipe insulation to it, fits perfectly now.
A couple of more shots from different angles to give you a better idea.
Works great to carry water bottles, my emergency tool kit, tire changing tools, patch kit, and a extra tube. With room left over.
Got this next one off e-bay. Got the lead from the Bent Riders Forum. Only $6, free shipping. Took awhile since it came from China. Works very well for camera, wallet, phone etc. Stuff you might want ready access to.
Took last week off to go fishing, back to the ride this week….
