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.
