No such luck... As far as we can tell, these are about the only set of Givi side bag supports for the VN750 around. Got them from Knifemaker, who got them from a guy in Malaysia. So the chances of someone replicating my setup is even less than going down to the Kawi dealership and buying a new luggage rack for $99.

Other folks have gotten similar results adding a wingrack to their saddlebag supports, but I haven't seen another set of these mounts anywhere, including the net. Posted up the pics for curiosity's sake more than anything. The E21s are a great fit for the Vulcan and while not particularly "cool" looking, incredibly functional & I'm really pleased with how it turned out.

OK, don't know if I'm the only one who noticed but what's with the dots in the middle of your rear brake and turn signals? Do you have LED's? Nice bags by the way!

They are old school blue dots. You drill a hole in the lens & insert them. I've usually seen them in brake lights & not turn signals. I'd be curious how they look illuminated.

The bags came out very nice by the way!

No LEDs. To be honest, I'd always just assumed the were OE installed...

Yep, looks alot better with the "smaller" bags. Givi bags rock, glad someone got to use the supports as intended.

For those interested, there is a write up somewhere here on how to use the Wingrack to mount Givi bags to the 750.
