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.

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/B008R0JU10/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1

Thank you Kenny G. and Cue Baller for the heads-up. Guess the ones from Revzilla
at $88.20 would be the best deal. :smile2:

Cant wait to see someone with the tan bag! I had a hard time deciding what theme to go with on my bike.

What part of the frame did you mount the bottom part of the bag too?

I put the bottom part on the actual swing arm, it's as tight as it is on the two top mounts, but it seems to stay put so far!

Hi Everyone,

New here from up in Canada. I just got the tan swing arm bag and installed it today. I managed to swipe it from amazon for $80 CAD and free shipping. I must say, I feel like this bag was made for this bike. It fits perfectly! Not overly large, but good enough for gloves, glasses a water bottle and some tools. Just thought I would share.

But doesn't the swing arm move and flex the bag?
I think it may stretch out a little, but the leather is sort of good with that. I was just banking on the fact that its called a "swing arm bag" that It would be fine in the long run. Its only been a week... but so far its been great for a water bottle, lock, and my helmet lock.
