Default Small saddlebag brackets for 883n

I recently bought a 2012 883n. It is bare bones and I am cheap so I balked at the $600 cost of buying passenger pegs, pillion pad and sissy bar/pad plus the additional cost of saddle bags. Most saddle bags are too large to fit without relocating the rear signal lights and license plate holder. So I bought swing arm bags from Victory Leather that are small enough to mount without moving things around.

Some 1" x 1/8" flat steel was easy to cut, shape and weld into a mounting bracket.


They are only held in place by one bolt but so far the bracket is holding everything in place well. When I make the luggage rack/rear seat then I may add some more re-enforcement to the bag bracket.


The small bags are not the best shape but at $57 each they work well enough.
