Swing Arm Bag installed

Hey hey! This forum has been pretty helpful so I figured I would contribute, maybe help a few others.

I recently bought a Swing Arm Bag from Willie and Max on a recommendation (link here)

Its made for a Harley sportster and it looked great on my friends Iron, so I figured I would just give it a try and it fits great (see photos!). I just got got my rebel and I am a new rider so I am still trying to figure everything out as far as how I ride and what I need, but for now I throw a water bottle, my lock, and other stuff in there. Probably fit my camera in its small case in there when I am ready.

Instal was easy, although I did have to take off the seat and the left side panel to fit the straps around it. It doesn't get in the way when I am riding. And all the parts came with it - I am sure there are cheaper bags out there but after seeing this one in action I was happy to spend the money.

Next is raising or replacing the bars and new seat... still looking into that.

Congrats and nice mod. Think that side bag looks very neat. I like it better than the OEM saddlebags.

Will,

Good job, that really looks good. I am going to order one today.

Everyone on here will appreciate the link that you provided. I checked and the bag is also available on Amazon Prime. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...KIKX0DER&psc=1

Yeah these kind of bags are more neat on the bike, than the big sadlebags at the back. And way easier to mount onto the bike. I really like the look on them a whole lot better.
Will appear on my bike too some day.

Hi Kenny. Can't seem to find the same bag in black. Think we should be looking at Part Number 59778-00. Which one are you referring to and at what price, please?

Thank you Kenny G. and Cue Baller for the heads-up. Guess the ones from Revzilla
at $88.20 would be the best deal.
