H-D Road King Classic Saddlebags...
These are pictures of my new saddlebag projects for the 800 Vulcan. These are the hard leather covered Road King Classic bags for a Harley Davidson motorcycle. I've always loved the looks of these bags, and they are HUGE. I bought them with removable liners.
Here's a shot from the rear...you'll notice that I had to fabricate the new rear turn signal mounts. I used the rear signals from a 1500 Vulcan Classic, then cut and contoured about 2.5" from both sides. The mounting rails were fabricated from stainless steel sheet.
I think these bags changed the entire look of my motorcycle, giving it a longer and more streamlined look. The lids hinge upwards, and the buckles on the sides actually have quick releases for closure.
I added the Kawasaki Fire and Steel Wide Dresser Bars in front of the bags to help protect them in a fall (and add a little more chrome). The Jardine Sissy Bar was modified for a "somewhat" quick release, only requiring about 3 minutes to install or remove.
Here's one final shot of the setup. I am planning to add the Road King Classic Tour Pack (trunk) that matches the bags, for the extra storage space needed onlong trips. The Tour Pack will be installed with quick releases, so I don't have to ride with it on all the time. An added feature of the tour pack is the integral passenger backrest, so the Jardine will soon be out the door :-)
