Willie and Max bags

came across a vet having a yard sale and the bags caught my eye. turns out the vet is selling everything so the cash can be donated to the usmc toys for tots. 30 dollars got me the bags and a fork bag.
so this afternoon i put glens signal brackets on and wired the signals







now i have to get the support brackets on and secure the bags. i put a vista cruise set up on and works great. now its either get a batwing or a shield for 2up riding

That's a damn good deal goofin - congratulations. Looks nice.

What are the dimensions of those bags? I'm trying to figure out what the largest size of bags we can put on these bikes.

I run Willie and Max 16" bags on my 750 and the wifes 500 Vulcan.
They have held up well on numerous rain filled long trips.

The back of the support should be mounted to the hole on the turn signal relocation bracket, if those are the correct supports.
Then, just zip tie the side and or bottom of the bags to the supports.
That will level the bags out. Other than that, they look to be mounted ok.
