Duane Taylor has been busy in his shop again. This time it was getting everything done to reproduce the early lightweight saddlebags. I've received his permission to post the end results.

They look incredible!
Many hours of work in these bags. Nice work Duane!

Is it possible to see pic/pics of the factory mounting plate they mount to?
I think I might have one for the early 125S, but need to make sure before I ask if it's possible to get on the waiting list!

DUANE TAYLOR HERE;
MOUNTING SADDLEBAGS.

THERE WERE/ARE TWO OPTIONS WITH BOTH BEING THE SAME AS THAT OFFERED BY HARLEY IN ANCIENT TIMES.

90985-49A SADDLEBAG HANGERS. THIS WAS A 4 PIECE, CHROMED ASSEMBLY WITH 2 DEBOSSED STRAPS STRADLING AND BOLTED TO THE REAR FENDER AND A HORIZONTAL FLAT STRUT SECURED TO THE STRAPS, EACH SIDE. A SADDLEBAG
WAS THEN BOLTED TO THE HORIZONTAL STRAP ON EACH SIDE. THIS PART IS PICTURED IN SOME OF THE HARLEY ACCESSORY BROCHURES.

A53400-47 LUGGAGE CARRIER. THERE WERE/ARE PRE PUNCHED HOLES ON EACH SIDE OF THE LUGGAGE CARRIER. THESE HOLE SPACINGS MATCH THOSE IN THE INTERNAL SADDLEBAG MOUNTING STRAP.

I WOULD POST PICTURES IF I KNEW HOW BUT I DON'T KNOW HOW, NOW.
