Swing Arm Bag

I bought a Willie & Max Swing Arm Bag from Amazon designed for a Sportster and it installed perfectly. Looks great.

I had a hard time finding a picture of this setup before I bought the bag, so I am glad it turned out well. Sharing a picture here so others can see what it looks like on the Street.

That looks awesome. Did it install as it was intended to or did it require any messing around? I definitely want one

I didn't have to do anything to the bag or the bike to make it fit. I was pleasantly surprised.

I removed the seat and the left side plastic cover so I had easier access to the swing arm. Wrapped the leather straps around the swing arm at the top right and bottom left. Then I attached the bottom right part of the bag to the right of the belt guard. I thought I was going to have to loosen or remove the belt guard to install, but I didn't need to. Then put back on the plastic left side cover and put the seat back on. Tooke about 10 minutes and half of that was just thinking about how it would go on.

FWIW, I have a Viking Bags "Swing Arm Solo Bag" that I planned to put on my C50T, and then my XG750. In both cases, I decided against it.

I could be convinced to sell this because it's just sitting in the box right now.

I hate autocorrect. I always end up posting some thong I didn't Nintendo.

This looks great. Just ordered one. Found it cheap on ebay with a "make offer". Seller had two, so if someone wants it, there's one left.


(Keep in mind I'm not endorsing this seller, I haven't received the bag yet, so I don't know anything about it, just letting you know of the auction availability).

I also found a dirt-cheap Chinese bag that I was going to gamble on if the Willie & Max seller hadn't accepted my offer. I have no idea of the quality of this bag (I assume it can't be too good for $15.60), or if it would fit, but it's $21 after shipping so I would have gambled on it.

You will have to remove your passenger peg to use the swing arm bag. It will fit with it on but it sits right on the flap and makes the bag pretty useless. I bought some of these in case I want to carry a passenger without the hassle of snap ring pliers.

The bag fits perfect on the bike. Love it!

OK ...........................

The bag I have available is by Viking Bags. The Model # is SW-90-PL on the box, along with the #B9STSW-90-PL Softail SwingArm Solo B(ag)

https://www.vikingbags.com/Softail-Swing-Arm-Bags.htm

The one I have DOES NOT have the small "Viking Bag" logo on it, between the buckles. Otherwise, same as the link

Make me an offer!
