some things… gun show and bike project

OK post gun show report; sold a few things on Sunday, after having zero sales on Saturday; and got a few contacts for custom gear.  I am now in the progress of building up a bicycle with military gear and bags, so far I am using surplus gear, but I am having some ideas for custom gear tailored to cyclists and bike-packers that is compatible with current military equipment! I also have 8 Woodland pouches for sale; and am making DCU pouches this week!

here is the bike as it sits now

the panniers are MOLLE Sustainment Pouches; here’s how they are attached;

the heavier duty “camping rig”, with seat and without seat (earlier photos)

handlebar rig; a 3 day pack with 2x 2 quart  on front and 2 Medic pockets and a 1 1-qt canteen in middle on back

I’m not sure if I like the green bags orientation, I might flip it around for ease of removing items from the bag… or cut the two smaller pouches on the side to make room for webbing to attach pouches or bags for lashing…


getting ready for the Gun Show this weekend!

I am making 20 pouches for the gun show this weekend; 10 in Woodland and 10 in Army Combat Uniform’s Universal Camouflage Pattern (also known as ACU) and will be making Olive green pouches, Desert Camo pouches, and possibly black! Also, I will be having uniforms and equipment for sale at the Rickreall Gun Show in Rickreall, Oregon off of Highway 99W south of Highway 22;

they will also hold 25 rounds of 12 gauge 2 3/4″ shells loosely, as in no cardboard box, and they are excellent for first aid kits, small survival kits, hiking kits, gloves, hats, loose items for those who want a do-all type of belt pouch;
