Finally riding a big boys bike

Is there a correct alternative to the Persons Tool Pouch used on G519 bicycles or is anyone reproing them. Just curious, Mike
No one is reproducing them right now. The only correct tool bag is the issued one. They do periodically show up for sale.Is there a correct alternative to the Persons Tool Pouch used on G519 bicycles or is anyone reproing them. Just curious, Mike
I honestly couldn’t tell what the date(s) of manufacture are. I used photos from previous “for sale” images as examples. But if I had to guess I’d hazard that Persons had leftover materials from wartime production and continued to make and sell their tool bags without the OD paint scheme. But that would depend on someone offering the rough dimensions of an original from a G519. Note also, the second version with the studs also has a changed stamp reading “Genuine Leather”.That top of be looks like it would work, what is the date on that one?
To the best of my knowledge there weren't any WW2 US Military bicycles issued with a rear fender rack.Good idea! And one could always sling the old Musette Bag on the bike...
Which brings up another question....
Did any of the WW2 US military bicycles have a rack on the rear fender?
