Here is a very rare item offered for sale today. it is a pair of AC Sologne panniers in NOS condition. Almost impossible to find in this condition. These are the type B bag I believe. AC Sologne bags were made in France and were top quality. Gilles Berthoud bought the company name many years ago and continues to make bags with some of these patterns today. These originals are highly sought after today and complete that period French cyclo-tourist bike nicely. These are from the late 60’s-1970’s. They are made from a nice bluish cotton canvas with leather trim and buckles. They work with most racks.The sides are laced (expandable), a nice feature to get a nice snug fit on your luggage.
They are 12″ wide at the top and taper down to 10″ wide at the bottom. they are 14″ tall. Fully opened (expanded), they are 7″deep. One of the bags is missing the label. It appears to never have been stitched on, I am not sure if this is the way they came, or was just a mistake. The canvas is not faded, and has no staining. There are a couple darker blue minute spots here and there, only noticable up very close. All leather straps and trim are a nice honey brown.
