Baggin Ass – How I Built a Custom Metric Bagger

I wanted a low and fast custom bagger to carry all my stuff but I didn’t want to spend upwards of K to have it. Got tired of backpacks and bungees – you know the one…. So I built my own. It took me just over a year to save for, purchase, then fit/finish all the components to complete the build. Here is how I did it.

Thanks Island Racing for all the nice machine work!

Thanks Tiff for putting up with all the late nights out in the shop!

Thanks to my friends who gave advice and support during the build.

Thanks NewWave customs.

Thanks for those that put FREE no-copyright music out there for us to use!

    Diggin on your bike man. I remember seeing this a while back when I was still in the contemplative stage. I've got most of my parts now and plan on setting my signals in the fairing also. I'm digging the style you've got, do you recall which signals they were? I've found a few that were almost close, but not quite spot on. Keep doing what you're doing man, you're killing it!

    REALLY enjoyed the video!!! Incredible vision with amazing talent!!!
    I'm a fellow Vermonter and a fairly new rider. Been modifying a '08 Kawasaki Vulcan 1600 Classic for the last couple of years with plenty of compliments, but you can only do so much with just bolt-on's. You, my man, are an artist!!!!
    Hope to see ya on the road someday!
