Repurposed Seat Bag
 
I recently treated myself to a new Brompton and was looking for a small seat bag to carry flat-fixing tools, another layer, etc. I was lusting after an Acorn but despaired of waiting months for the opportunity to win their speed-ordering contest.

Then, last night, I remembered an old Swedish Army surplus gas mask bag I'd bought on impulse a couple of years ago because it was kinda cool. I removed the straps, repositioned two strap mounting rings, treated the leather, and mounted it with two leather straps from an old horse headstall from the attic.

The results:

(Sorry, didn't realize the first picture was so blurry.)

Anyway, it's just what the doctor orderedóright sized, doesn't interfere with the fold, and the leather perfectly matches the Brooks B17.

so what kind of electronics are you packing in there? since that is where you posted it.

I have put together 5D cell battery packs for a bigger Amp-hr capacity use
Powering, a light set for an hour commute , 20 years ago.

That looks great, and really takes advantage of the space you get between the saddle and tire on the small-wheel bicycles.

Hmm, I posted it under "Electronics, Lighting & Gadgets" because 1) I suppose you could call it a gadget and 2) I couldn't find a more appropriate forum for it.

The mods are more than welcome to move the thread, of course, and if it will make you feel better I'll pop my iPad mini in there for a few minutes - it will fit just fine.
