Building my first frame up ebike. Using a Micargi fat cruiser frame. Trying to figure out how to mount hard motorcycle saddlebags to the frame.

You'll have to make some mounts for the bags of course. Several different ways of doing such. Depending on the shape of the bags . Also to weld or not weld brackets. With no weld. Easy enough to use some angle iron a vise and a drill some nuts n bolts to make your brackets. Welding.. well sane used but more of a perm way .
What do your saddlebags look like?

The end results in my head are costing more money and parts. Have most of the parts to come close to finishing my build. One big problem with my build is that I live in a 2nd-floor apartment, with no elevator. So I have to build with that in mind. Am learning a lot of new things with this build.

I ended up buying removable mounts with a lock. And clamps for the frame. Work in progress.
