I got a pair of old Buco saddle bags. They need a little work and a repaint. I bought some nice lockable latches for the lids. But am looking for some rubber seals that would work nicely for the lids. I have the old ones but are very...broke.

thanks

Reproductions

I noticed on ebay that someone is selling reproductions of the old Buco bags. It may be bluemoonscooter (Danny Vu), but I'm not sure. If you contact that person, they may be able to supply the seals you need.

Speaking of Bucos....

These should clean up nicely:

I've seen some creative paint jobs on Bucos that make them look really good. They were never as popular as the Wixoms, Enduros, and Cravens, but they are solid and serviceable.

EDIT: And these by the same seller:
