Vintage late 70's or 80s Bates hard bags with chrome side rails. Must be in good condition. Broken locks or missing keys O.K. I will ask for pictures before buying.

As mentioned, E-bay had several listed last night. If you get the Cycolac (thin) Bates bags I may have a set of NOS chrome rails for sale (someone else is currently interested).

A nice pair with side rails sold for $82 not to long ago on Ebay. Sure wish I didn't forget that auction was ending and had been there to bid. Could have had them for $83! Two days later just a right sold fo $80 and the Left for $83.
I figure I'll have to paint them so a worn finish is not important. I just need bags with no cracks and rails with no damage, good chrome.

Good luck on your quest!

I wish someone would come along and reproduce the bates bages!

If they can reproduce these, then why not the bates?

These are nice too. Maybe if these people new the Bates were in demand they reproduce them. I'm going to e-mail them. Thanks for the input.
