Saddlemen Saddlebags with Easy Brackets $200 + Shipping

I have for sale my Saddlemen studded "leather" saddlebags. I removed the saddlebag yoke and mounted the Easy Bracket to the plastic saddlebag backing. I used fender washers on the inside to prevent the bolts from pulling through. I have over packed these bags, and the are solid. With the Easy Brackets when you get to your destination, it is as easy as turning a key to bring the bags inside with you. I am only selling this combo because I have decided to go with hard bags.

If you are looking for a turnkey way to get bags on your 1300 R/S/T this is for you. All you have to do is replace 4 fender bolts with the included hardware (do one bolt at a time so the finder doesn't move) then you are ready to go.
