Viking Saddle Bags

Has anyone had any dealings with Vikingbags.com? They initially seem to have good pricing and decent products but it is almost too good when reading their web site. I am interested in putting bags on my 2000 Vulcan 750and I saw bags I like on their site under $150.00 including hardware. I will have to relocate my tail lights but I was doing that all the same. Please let me know if anyone has tried their products.

Thank you. I checked them out online but they only had seven bags to choose from. The prices did look very good if I found a style I liked. I appreciate the information.

I appreciate the information. I will continue to look into their offerings and make a choice soon. I want to finish the front of my bike first and then relocate the rear lights and add the bags. Ride safe and enjoy the new season.

those viking bags look sharp, is there side brackets you have to attach? or are they like normal bags.

The bags have a rigid back with mounting holes already in them.
They are removable bags.
I had to make these simple brackets in order to mount them to my bike.
I said I would post some pics. Sorry it took so long, but here ya go.
