Moto Guzzi V7 850 Cali Wixom bags rear The bike came with a pair of freshly spray painted Wixom bags and mountingbrackets. Unfortunately the hardware was incomplete. When I first tried to mount the bags, I found that they are larger than the original ones. The lids can't be fully opened because the grabrail of the saddle gets in the way. I fitted modified hinges, that allow the lids to be detached from the bags when I want to load larger objects.
