We took a classic look and combined it with our rock solid mounting system to make something great. The Retro series saddlebags are made to the same rigorous standards as all of our bags with only the toughest materials. The 1000 denier Cordura is UV and abrasion resistant, and the lids are made of the same 3/16" leather we use in all of our bags. They are also available in leather, replacing the outer layer of Cordura with flexible jacket-weight leather. Our impact resistant molded ABS plastic back makes the bags hug the bike tight for a sleek, low profile look, and makes extra room for whatever you need to carry. A hidden gusset can expand to further increase capacity. In fact, at 55 12oz beverage cans per side, these are the biggest bags we have ever made. And when you're riding light, a hidden gusset zips closed to keep the bags flat in the wind. These bags use our patented Clamp-It bracket, and are lockable to the bike (padlock not included). Sold as a pair.
Mounting and Compatibility
These bags are compatible with all Dyna models. However, make sure you select the correct model year, as there are some differences. Turn signals will need to be relocate off the strut, and if you have a side mounted license plate it will need to be relocated as well. All mounting hardware is included, and will work with detachable backrests. Mounting instructions for 2006 and newer bikes can be found here. Instructions for 2005 and older bikes can be found here. These bags are made to be compatible with stock exhaust systems and may not be compatible with aftermarket exhausts. Upswept exhausts that point hot air directly at the bags, such as the D&D Bobcat and TBR Comp-s, will not work with these bags. Please contact us with any compatibility questions.
