    On the Foot-peg side

    what failed attempts did you have with dchopper brackets? Getting them or installing them?

      I have a thread explaining how long and how many attempts I’d made to get a hold of Dennis. And I tried all last week before I gave up…he won’t respond.

        What are softail conversion brackets? Brackets that can use the Harley bags? Will they mount the hard bags also?

          Yes any HD bag..the kit is actually for the Hard bag..to convert Softails into baggers

            Do you have to alter the brackets or do they just bolt up? Is there a certain year model that fits correctly?

        • #6
          It bolts up to the fender, but the lower support arm is a tad short..I made a 2” x1” extension bracket and bolted to the rear foot peg bolt to reach it.
          the year model was from ‘86-2013

              I mounted my HD bags with these brackets. Had to fab a front lower bracket to mount at Pass. Peg mounts. Still can't figure out what the four rubber parts are for ? Came in parts bag with Softail Bracket ?

                The 4 rubber pads ? That’s for the lower support bar...to be mounted on the bottom of the bags in case your bag doesn’t have any.

                  Horsehammerr, what exhaust are you running with these brackets? Do you like the way the bags worked out?

                  Mr. Miyagi what exhaust do you have.. ? They work with stock..a stacked dual wouldn’t work, it would hit

                    I have the stock shotgun style stacked dual. Maybe a consideration if I decide to change exhaust.
