Our patented design attaches the bag directly to your swingarm using existing factory mounting points for a true bolt-on installation that requires no modifications to your swingarm. The mounting brackets are specially designed to allow you choose your mounting location on the swingarm based on your own preference. You have total flexibility and can choose to mount it in a more forward orientation closer to the passenger foot pegs to allow the possible use of a side mounted license plate, or in a more rearward orientation that leaves plenty of room for your passenger's feet. And once installed, simply removing 4 bolts lets you take off your bag in seconds for easy access to your rear wheel, while still leaving the swingarm mounting bracket in place for quick reattachment, so you don't have to remove the entire kit to clean your wheel.

Forget about attaching your bag to your bike using straps and buckles or tie wraps! Those don’t hold very tight, can rub the powdercoating off your swingarm, and can even get tangled in your rear wheel. Our kit gives you a solid mounting setup that lets your bag hold more stuff and can also help it keep its original shape. It positions your bag close to the bike, but far enough away from the swingarm that it won't hit the fender. It also keeps your bag from drooping down when it's loaded and potentially hitting the ground.
Our kit is modular and is designed to fit all Softail Models from 1986-Present. It includes all heavy duty stainless steel hardware, black spacers, and mounting brackets that are precision machined out of super strong 1/8" thick steel plate which is finished with a black textured powdercoat finish for durability and looks.
