R9Kustoms™ was founded by an Australian Expat living in Thailand. Jimmyb has lived in Thailand for a long time, having married a Thai national. They live in a small town west of Bangkok.
R9Kustoms is well established, we are real people, living real lives, and our main focus is to ensure you get what you paid for within a reasonable amount of time (yes, covid is playing havoc on shipping).
We have been in business in many forms in Thailand, and Australia, and know what is expected from online retail, to produce a quality product, and most importantly keep the customer well informed.
Jimmyb designed the Sissy Bar Duffle Bag and Vintage Tool Rolls after finding the other options available either lacked that true vintage look, or simply did not perform to what his idea of a great retro styling should be. With this in mind, the rolltop sissy bar duffle bag and tool rolls were born. Tough, classic and multifit!
What really makes R9 Kustoms better than the rest? Once you have one of our bags in your hands, you will suddenly realise why you made the right decission. From the grade of canvas we use, the reinforced leather panels, brass fasteners throughout the bag, quality hardware and oh that unforgetable smell of genuine cowhide leather.
If you want the best result, you need to use the best ingredients, and our ingredients are the bomb!
All our bags feature an easy to use, weather proof roll top design with a rubber backed retro tartan liner.
Multi purpose is important in design, which is why our sissy bar duffle bag comes with a shoulder strap to make carrying your luggage a breeze, and also doubles as added security when attaching the bag to your sissy bar.
To do this the strap can also be used around the duffle when fitted to the bike, attaching at the front buckle strap retainer.
FAQ: Fitment and caring for your new sissy bar duffle bag?
If you are running a super wide sissy bar, we have allowed enough lace that should give you a good fit. Some customers though have really wide bases to their sissy bars. To help improve fitment, if the lace is not long enough to allow you to slide the corset completely down the sissy bar with ease, remove the toggles from the end of the lace, and drop the lace from the top two eye holes and put your toggles back on, that will allow more length to the lace and width at the base for a good fit.
The canvas on your new bag is coated in a light wax sealer, which is part of making our product weather proof. With exposure to the elements, this will diminish, so we recommend applying a waterproofing spray at least every 3-6 months depending on use.
You bought your bag to use, and lets face it, it’s getting used out on the road, maybe a dirt track or in the rain with grime on the road. When you get home, if your canvas has mud on it, a soft damp cloth will suffice to clean it off, or if there is a larger amount, an old toothbrush can be a great help also.

Make sure when buying your gear to buy only from this, our offical R9Kustoms.com website, or the offical Ebay and Etsy stores. We have seen scammers stealing our images and hard work, and trying to dupe unsuspecting customers.
