Metal Mule Panniers for Sale. £350.
Here we have a very nice pair of Metal Mule panniers. 2007 vintage and only used Half a dozen times in anger and for a few commutes or shopping trips in between.

38litre capacity each.

Usual top quality MM panniers they don’t make them like this anymore. Roughly equivalent feature-wise to MM’s current Max pannier which retail for nearly £500 EACH.

• anodised - no Ali oxide rubbing. Pack straight into the panniers.
• rubber feet
• sprung handles either side and lid (sprung means no rattles).
• tie downs on the lid
• Locking hinged lids. One lock only per box.
• two keys (same key both panniers). Locks lock the panniers to the bike and locks the lid.
• easy and quick on/off.
• folded and riveted joints to create the box. Very strong.
• unused on a bike since 2011, although kept in the garage to dry store camping equipment.

Not so good bits....
• They have been used so not pristine. Nevertheless they look great slowly gaining an authentic well travelled look.
•Some of the anodising has rubbed off inside one box where something rubbed while packed.
• I made them fit another bike with non-MM pannier frames by moving a couple of the mounting brackets. There are therefore a few extra holes blanked off with nuts bolts and washers. See pics of the insides and the back. This does not affect the panniers in any way. The panniers should still fit directly onto any MM pannier frame for any bike.

I'm interested in the panniers but Garstang is a bit to far north for collection.
Do you ever go near Bedford/Cambridge?
