Rodark Panniers
« on: 23 May 2021 at 08:53 »
I've acquired a lovely pair of Craven Rodark panniers but the locks are missing.  I've managed to source new locks but don't have any information on what sort of locking mechanism was inside the panniers.  Craven haven't got any old drawings or pictures.  I think there must be some sort of pin fixed to the bracket that is on the vertical wall of the pannier, onto which a latch on the back of the lock must engage.  I wondered if anyone might have some intact panniers and could send me some pictures of the latch and pin assembly so that I can duplicate it?  Many thanks, Bob

Dave - many thanks indeed!  This is exactly what I needed (and actually different to how I thought it would be!)

Thanks very much.

Regards,
Bob

Thanks Veikko!  It looks like your locks are actually in a different place to mine - which are at the top front edge of the lid  rather than down near the handle.  I'm sure I'll be able to work out how to make them work though.  Thanks again for your help.  regards, Bob
