Default Leatherlyke bags 2003 vs. later?

I've been using Leatherlyke bags on my 2003 (rigid) XLH883 but I've replaced them with bigger bags so I can take the kitchen sink when I go touring.

So, now I want to sell the Leatherlykes. Does anyone know if they will fit the later (rubber-mount) models (which I'm sure would get them a lot more interest on eBay)? Leatherlyke lists different models here:

http://leatherlyke.com/products/bran...ster-2000-2003

and here:

http://leatherlyke.com/products/bran...ster-2004-2010

but I'm wondering if there is really any significant difference? Certainly the new bags I've fitted were for rubber-mount models (I got them cheap NOS) but they fitted my bike no problem.

P.S. this is not a sneaky advertisement! I'm in the UK and most of you aren't, so I'm not trying to sell them here!

They are not the same from what I know. They are both the same size but from what I know the mounting holes are slightly different between the rigid and solid mounts.

I can't remember the details of the differences, but I remember something being different between mine (rubber mount) and mikeLI_77's (rigid). I'm sure they could be made to work, but suspect they don't bolt right on.
