Saddleman Highwayman jumbo rivit slant saddlebags

I recently purchased a set of Saddleman Highwayman jumbo rivit slant saddlebags for my 750. and - it's a long story - but I wound up with 2 sets of bags. I only need one so I am offering the other set up for sale - they are new in the box I haven't even taken them out of the plastic wrapping. Here are a couple of pictures of the set I put on my bike. They are really large but you don't even know they are there. They will hold a 15" laptop computer easily along with a pile of other stuff. Yes I go grocery shopping with these easily. $85 if anyone is interested

Am I seeing straight, are the turn signals in their original places? Does the bag sit on the muffler at all even under load? On this page, which one is it? http://www.saddlemen.com/store/link_...icfitment.html

Is it model: X021-03-042 ? PM Sent.

He is using the KF&S Turn signal Relocation bracket
i circled it in red


As I try to do more research on them I found out that they are part of the KF&S Saddle Bag Support Brackets. But I don't have proof

Yes I did use the KF&S relocation brackets and they do come with saddlebag supports - I have had them on for a couple of years. You would need to relocate your turn signals if you haven't because these bags are so big.They do not get on the muffler even under load and I carry a bunch of stuff in there to my jobs. This bike is my daily driver. I just checked and when they are empty they are about 3 or 4 inches above the mufflers

Thank you - but I am VERY stubborn about modifying this bike, even something as harmless as moving turn signals. I think I am stuck with small bags like what I have. grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
