Ammo Canisters vs. Panniers

Contrary to popular myth, panniers are not ammo boxes. Ammo might have been carried in them, but they were not designed with that purpose in mind. These are general purpose panniers for tools, parts, vodka, etc. Panniers are available through European vendors. IMWA (Irbit MotorWorks of America) sells a modernized version of these through their dealer network. Most are new-made copies, not NOS (new old stock).

Pannier is derived from the old French "panier," meaning basket for bread. A Pannier is either of a pair of bags or boxes attached to the sides of the motorcycle or sidecar and is used to carry gear, clothes or tools.

The mounting frame is bolted to the sidecar body and the pannier is then attached to the frame using the traditional spring loaded rotating handles.
