So I was looking for small saddlebags when I came across these images of this rebel 500 with a small black side bag just under the seat.

This is exactly what I wanted to get, does anyone know where I can get them from or who may produce them?

Thanks!

That looks pretty sharp. My brother has something similar on his Breakout, though it's mounted further back.

ETA: based on the placement in the pics, it's possible that one's just zip tied on to the exposed frame below the side panel... not sure if there are actual mounting options in that location.

That does look pretty sleek. But...what can you really fit in something that small? I'm assuming it's a spot to store gloves, glasses, and maybe a magazine or two?
Can't imagine you can fit much more.

Pretty cool set-up. Always good to see ingenuity in progress on this site with so many bike owners. It's great to see all the ideas about mods.

This looks great, I'm gonna bobber my rebel so this would be ideal. Not sure how it's attached though/secure. This vid shows one on a harley & it uses brackets etc.


I like the two buckles so its not like a handbag :D

Looks like you will have to remove the passenger foot pegs to neatly mount the side bag.

I have a swingarm bag i may be able to use. Mounting the top of the bag is no problem, but i see no place for tne bottom to be mohnted on the frame.

We just ordered that one last night Ryan, because I'm a cheapy too. :wink2: It arrives Wednesday.

By the way, thanks Boki for the idea. Great vision and execution.
Thanks :)

Post some pictures when you have it installed

A most excellent and sleek solution to the small carry / wallet & water bottle problem. I like it a lot.

I also was wondering how useful could such a small bag be. Your comment made me look outside the box. Thank you, looks like a great, sharp, and handy upgrade.

Got our $24 Amazon swingarm bag yesterday that Ryan Davis linked to earlier.
Sorry about the image quality on the garage pic. It was late at night. I have only attached the bag at the top two spots with the straps they provided, so the bottom flops a little, but I don't think it will be that bad at all. There's no easy/pretty way to attach it at the bottom, but there's also no way it will hit the chain in that spot. If it moves around too much, I'll figure something out.
Decent quality, perfect size, like it was made for this bike, though it might get some water inside in the rain.
My wife and I have both sat on the bike and it's not in the way at all. You'll know it's there when you Flintstone the bike around, but I have to spread my feet so wide because of the peg position, it's not any more of an issue.
My wife loves it! Score one for me! (Thanks again, Boki)

Hi All, Greatings from London

I am a new member, just picked up my Rebel500 few days ago, love it!
I was already looking for swingarm/saddlebag options befor I got the bike, tbh I dont really like the Honda saddlebag (neither the price of it).
Accidentally I run into this tool roll from Frank Thomas, originally I wanted to put below the headlapm but I realized that it fits quite OK on the side without removing the passanger pegs.. The bag is made of real leather, nice quality, strong buckle straps can be attached both horizontal and vertical. My disclock and rain (over)gear fits easly.
