Saddle bag supports / brackets

PostAuthor: jamesm113 » Thu Aug 15, 2019 12:29 am

Anybody make a DIY saddle bag support or bracket? Want something inexpensive to keep my saddle bags from interfering with the tires.

Here is a basic idea you can expand on.

If you like, I’ll take a photo of my guards so you can see where they are bolted on.

Yes, a picture would be great, it's kinda hard to see where the front bolts were mounted too.

I also don't have that second hole that he does (near the rear turn signals).

Thank you!!

Here's a picture of the side of my bike... Not really any good mounting points I can see sadly.
