So I've been keeping my eyes open for a set of panniers and rack for awhile....US-eBay the prices are outrageous and UK-eBay the prices are a better, but you have to factor in the freight cost....I know there are many other brands (and superior to Craven) out there, but I've got my heart set on a period look.....

I came across this today on a website...while I must say I'm not familiar with the start-up costs of such an operation....perhaps there is enough of a demand to follow through with it?

Ken Craven died some time ago. Here iswhat happened, to the best of my knowledge:
First; things went to: sales@cfgsiteservices.co.uk
You could have found them unresponsive, and you might have found a website for Craven stuff, and found it also
unresponsive. Nash Morgan; Lightmoor Works, Speech House Road, Cinderford,
Glos., GL14 3HU England Tel. +44-1594-827649 was the contact. All Craven items were next sold to
Phil Primmer: http://www.westcountrysidecars.co.uk


On 01/13/2009, I received the following information, which I have edited for clarity....so these are not Roger's exact
words.


We acquired the Craven Equipment business from Phil Primmer of West Country Sidecars who retired. It is taking us some time to sort out all the drawings, moulds and tooling but we hope to be in a position to start production late in 2009. We will start by making the more popular top boxes, panniers, racks and fittings and hope to eventually have most of the Craven range in stock. We will supply individual parts to repair or complete old sets of luggage and carriers but in the meantime we are not able to help with any spares as there was very little stock. We also will be producing Phil Primmer's own panniers and rack that were designed principally for Vincents and we hope to finish of the moulds he was making in order to produce Rodark Panniers. We welcome enquiries in the meantime. At the moment we do not even have any permanent premises and the preferred method of contact is by email contact@CravenS.org.uk

hey jubee- I think i have a set of cravens and the hardware (got it when i bought my a65l). I actually posted in the rod and tappet about what they were- as ive never seen another set and they are built well. Id be willing to trade since im in the middle of 2 builds, triton slimline and triumph trackmaster. Both need alot of parts. Tony.
