Thumbs up What bags are these?

Saw these in the 900 Pics thread, asked there, but not too many people seem to read old posts in that thread so I thought I'd start a new one.

These bags look awesome IMO! Hard bags, top loading, nice curves. Haven't seen anything like that. Was wondering if anyone has seen them before and could ID them...or are they custom made?

Thanks

I'm not certain, maybe an older model? The current national cycle bags look like this:



Similar, but the lines are different.

I thought Tsukayu at first, but now I'm not so sure.

Perhaps they are pre-made bags that have been modified?

I am at a loss. I know they look CLOSE to Corbin's Beetle Bags but they are not. Unless there happens to an older design. But I am with you RBS2, I like to looks of them but not the price.

yeah...if I had the cash to get the beetlebags, I'd probably just upgrade and get the Victory XR instead. But since I don't have the cash...lol
