can't find a saddlebag latch for a C10 Connie, check this site
« on: December 12, 2015, 03:17:36 pm »
After searching for months without finding a used front latch for the RH bag I found this site which is a new latch, it can cost from 81.18 to 58.49, this site had it for 58.49 + SH of 6.95 so the grand total is 65.44, it has parts for both LH & RH bags and all the little parts associated with the bags, they cover many years & models......

Owning a 2003 C10 sometimes it's hard to find parts, like the RH front latch on the saddlebag. I have bought used parts from other members & on Ebay when possible but sometimes the part needed just can't be found & I avoid the dealer when I can, they have a high overhead to maintain & you will pay the max. I found this web site when searching for that RH latch, these are new parts so they can get expensive but they have discounted a lot of parts, that RH latch normally sells for 81.18 but they discounted it to 58.49 + SH of 6.95 for a total of 65.44, again not cheap but at least you can FIND the dang thing. The site I'm talking about is http://www.partzilla.com/   If anyone has found similar sites it would benefit all of us if you would list them, we all like to save money.

Here's another place to try:
http://www.metricpartsoutlet.com/

They still want $81 bucks for the latch but at least it's another source for parts.
