This bike was a way for me to hold on to my fathers spirit because he loved this bike and I'm sure he would be proud of the way it looks now.

Really dig your shovel ... very clean looking bike. Question for you--how'd you mount the late-model bags. It looks like a H-D P/N 47449-06 saddlebag support kit mounted on or about your passenger footpegs. Did you have to change the location on the bags or the struts where they mount? Did you use the support that mounts on the back side of the fenders? If you have photos and narrative of how you did it that would be great or feel free to pm me. Thanks! Great looking bike!
