3 Sizes of Saddlebags with the Classic Look
MM02 - Our standard bags
MM08 - Same as MM02s, but 1 1/2 inches taller
MM14 - Our Extended/Stretched bags
(see more info on individual sizes below)
All our products are sold in kit form since the customer configures the universal mounts and is responsible for painting the bags.
Bags are fresh from the molds and will need to be prepped for painting. Painting fiberglass is much the same as painting a fender on a car. Wash with solvent, sand, prime, block sand & paint. They are hinged in the front, with a chrome plated locking latch at the rear. The latches are keyed alike. The bags are fully assembled, however, the hinges and latches are bolted on so you can easily remove the hardware for painting the bags. The brackets are made of aircraft quality aluminum with a brushed finish and are quite sturdy. You can easily carry 15 pounds per side.
MM02: The lid opening of the smaller bag is approximately 8 X 17 inches. The overall height including the lid is about 12 inches. The slant on the front and rear of the bag is 33 degrees, (or 57 degrees, depending on how you measure), which gives the bags an overall length of approx. 23 inches. Both the MM02 & MM08 use the same lid.
MM08: The lid opening of the deeper bag is also 8 X 17 but is 1 1/2 inches taller/deeper/ higher, however you want to say it, than the MM02, for a height of 13.5 inches. The overall length is about 23 inches. The MM02 & MM08 use the same lid.
MM14 EXTENDED BAG: The lid opening is 8 X 19 inches and has an overall height of 15.5 inches. The slant on the front and rear makes the bag have an overall length of approx. 26 inches These can be ordered with both bags having a flat bottom, with the right side bag having the 'tunnel' for the exhaust pipes, or with both sides have the 'tunnel' for an exhaust pipe.
These Hard Saddle Bags are Sold as a KIT
The customer does the painting and configuring the mounts. Since the mounts are universal, the customer has to use his/her judgement on the exact position of the bags, drill the bags, and possibly add some spacers (not supplied) if necessary. On some bikes, longer bolts (not supplied) are required to attach the brackets to the fender rails as our brackets are a full 1/2 inch thick. Complete instructions are provided with each set of bags or an email copy can be sent on request.
We do everything in house so that we can keep the price as low as possible. However, we do not do the custom painting of the bags at our facility. This allows the customer to find a local shop where custom graphics and colors can be applied. This way, if you get a scratch or ding, you can easily go back to the local shop and get a touch-up. You can also order factory matched paint online at www.colorrite.com if you prefer. Some auto paint stores can analyze the paint from your bike using a spectrophotometer and mix up a perfect or near perfect match
