Nice, and I see you didn't have to go through the trouble of relocating the signals.

A similar set came with my bike a couple of months ago, although I have not tried to mount them. All I have are the bags; i.e. no hardware. They are fairly small and appear to rest nicely against the shocks. Do yours have metal hardware behind them?

New Saddlebags

I bought the Fire and Steel Saddlebag support and turn signal relocation kit from Peter. I used it to put new saddlebags on my 94 Vulcan. I have a picture in the misc. pictures. I haven't figured out how to put it here yet. This is my first picture. If you want to see it go to gallery and it is in the Misc. pictures. Really like the bike, but it is getting time to think about putting it up for the winter

I am looking to add saddlebags to my Vulcan 750 also. The year is 2000 and I was wondering what size to get. I would like to have enough room for overnight rides and I was looking at the LeatherUp website. Can someone give me the proper length and width. I will be using a relocation unit on the rear for my lights.

Thanks

Here is a write up with pics of installing Mutazu hardbags on a vn750.
It will give you an idea of the dimensions even if you want leather bags.

This should hold enough for overnight and you don't have to move your turn signals: http://www.leatherup.com/p/Motorcycl...uds/53105.html

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!
