My brother John is far more skilled with tools 'n' such than I am. Just for grins he decided to make a pannier of sorts from an old piece of luggage. The mounting bracket on it is attached to a 1/8th inch piece of plexiglass on the inside.
He says it looks funny, works okay, and weighs in at 4-1/2 pounds on the Safeway vegetable scale (more funny looks).
The title of this post? That's where the center of gravity is once you load this bad boy up with beer and snacks.
