Made this soft bag instead of buying the OEM mounts and rear saddlebag. Get's rid of the plastic cover I'm not a fan of too.

Get in line

You've really got something there with your design on those bags. I don't typically like bags, but I would be interested in those.

What, no brass horse :)? Nice job, I can appreciate the amount of work that went into that, I think you could sell a bunch of those... For me its gotta be steel or aluminium..

Thats real cool Man!!!!! Are they on both sides? Do you have to remove the plates to put them on, or can they go over the side plates?
What would you charge for it?

Whoa! Thanks guys! I just started with one bag on the right side as my prototype, but my pattern is reversible so I can easily make one for each side. I took the plate off to accommodate more room for when the bag is actually full but I think it would be fine with the plate still on. That is, if you use the under-seat as storage space. If not, why not just ditch the plastic?

@Mellowrider @Schu I can do $100 a bag shipped out the door and each one would take me about 4 days or less. Heck, if you're close to Elgin, IL I'll ride by your house with em! I can also do any color scheme and throw in any customization you want at no extra charge, unless you want additional pockets: that's $10 per extra pocket to account for the additional leather. If you're interested just PM me and we can go from there!

@flatrack lol that brass horse was a one of a kind lock I had laying around from my childhood. It belonged to my dad who used it as a bike lock waaaay back in the day and gave it to me when I was 6. Never knew what to do with it until now!

I want to be your first customer on a pair of those bags identical to the photo. Now I just have to figure out how to do the PM thing.

Stay Tuned!

it looks so good, I will definitely get a pair soon....
I really like how it keeps it more vintage and old school...

how is it attached to the bike ? do we have to take the seat off ?

is there a way that it can be lockable? (with a small lock) or even a key cylinder?

I can make the bag lockable with a quick lid modification on a new bag, but mine will never lock. I figure if someone really wants what's in my bag they'll just cut it open regardless of a lock so I figured I wouldn't keep anything precious in there. It's mostly for runs to the store. That's just me, though.

Totally agree... sometimes the lock is just for appearance... like when you put the steering lock in a car... if someone has an intention to steal the car, he will pass to the next one just because it looks like some work...

it's to keep away the lazy thieves.... not the creative ones...

a creative one will get a truck and put the bike on it.. then later split everything out separately ... :grin2::grin2:

it's still an amazing bag... I will soon PM you for one, just getting a couple of things lined up

Looks like it just hooks up with straps. 2 or 3 at the top and some on the sides?

And yes, the bag is held in place by two straps across the top of the frame, one on the top left (in photo), one on the right, and one on the bottom.
