  • Harley hard bags

    so i found some hard bags for a good price on Amazon. I have Longshots, but I think these will drop past them, so i was thinking of getting some shorty pipes.

    I'm not sure which brackets I'd have to use, i guess I could fabricate some, doea anyone have experience with these?

    Check dchopper brackets they are probably the nicest available. Some modify hd soft tail brackets (small modification.) as far as the pipes, the Longshots will fit with those bags. I have installed those exact bags on a RS with longshots.

      HD Softail brackets we'll fit to the fender with no modifications. Correct? You will have to adapt the lower mounts slightly.

        I have been looking at these for my bike...I have Longshots also and theses should fit fine. I bought a tour pack from the same company and have been really happy with it. The tour pack has a wire to hold the top from opening to far but it pulled away from the mounting point and it cracked my pack about a week after getting it. Contacted the company and they sent a complete replacement and had it a week later.

          For stock HD saddlebags.
          $34 eBay generic soft tail brackets
          Need to drill a hole to the right of where stock hole is in the mounting bracket triangular tab (to line up with the fender holes on Road Star).
          Passenger peg/floorboard mounting hole is where the lower bag bracket goes (I got 3 flat washers for the other mounting hole to even out the mounting of the floorboard/peg).

          Bolt in the lower bag mount first then as you bend/manipulate the top part of the bracket you will see where to drill the new holes in the triangular bracket

            Ya i went outside and measured where 14.5 would be and for the look I'm going for, these aren't the ones for me. I dont want to lower the bike at all, so I was looking at some 17.5s as well.

            Unfortunately they have the 5" exhaust cut out and im not going that route. Anyone have other suggestions that won't cost an arm and a leg....?


            Also, be warned, lots of questions coming soon, wheels are turning lol
