Finished less hitch bar to weld on.
Can figure out length after I get the Trike body on & check for open trunk clearance.

Lock Company is out of the combination flip lock I ordered, so had to use latches for now.

This is a great looking project.

Is the lid hinged?

How are you weather sealing the lid to the saddle bags?

No seal as yet.
There's a lip around the top of the bags with the lid down around it.
Should be good for most rain, but will check it after I get the Trike together.
