Bags

I turned a pair of large windshield bags into a pair of small saddlebags.

Thumbs up

Looks pretty good, that was a great idea. Did you use washers or a strap across both bolts?

Thanks, I used large washers and had to get slightly longer bolts, there is a metal strap already inside the bags. On the back of the bags there was a metal clip that kept the bag centered on the windshield, I drilled out the rivets and removed it so the bag would fit flat to the fender strut.
