WTB Robert Beckman touring panniers
« on: June 01, 2016, 01:16:04 pm »
Seeking a set of Robert Beckman touring panniers. We have an ultra-light set of front and rear Beckman panniers and racks for our Co-Motion tandem. We would like to carry a little more gear on an upcoming trip so a higher-volume set of Bob's panniers would be ideal (3000 - 4500 cu in). We'll consider both one and two pairs. Please let us know what you have. Thanks!

Note, we're in Vancouver, BC, but shipping would be to Point Roberts, WA, for simplicity.

I have a set of NOS (never used) Beckman Modular Tandem panniers in red and a smaller set of matching red panniers used once (almost NOS). I also have a matching set of Bruce Gordon racks, recently powder-coated and in excellent shape. I've been hanging on to them to use touring on our triplet (where pannier space is at a premium) but maybe it's time to find them a home where they will actually be used.

Note that in the photos they appear somewhat orange, but they are really a true red, and both sets match. Interiors are yellow for ease of finding things. I have shoulder straps for the Modular panniers, and rain covers for both sets (rain covers are older and used from my previous set of Beckman bags, and are included as-is).

The Modular panniers appear to be similar, if not identical, to the "Modular Tandem/Expedition Hybrid Panniers" shown on this page: http://robertbeckmandesigns.net/discoverymodels.php

I'm not sure what model the smaller panniers would equate with in Beckman's current line. They are similar in design and construction to the Modular panniers, but do not have the zip-off outside compartment. And, of course, they are a good bit smaller.

PM me for more details and to discuss pricing.

Our pannier volume dilemma has been solved with the purchase of new 2750 cu in Beckman Discovery panniers for our rear rack. Thanks for reading our ad.
