I just installed a pair of the Fatboy bags on my 2002 Fattie. The bags are a bit wider than I had expected but they still look good. They are not detachable bags. But there must be a way to make them detachable. Anyone have any suggestions?
You might want to look into a set of "barebacks" http://www.cyclevisions.com/barebacks.html
I haven't tried it on my FB but I've read and heard a lot about it. People seem to be realy happy with this system. You can find some posts on this topic around this forum.
try a website called Bubbas Brake put their detachable hardware on my 03 Fatty rode to Sturgis and then removed them for riding up there takes about 10 seconds to get them on and off (initial install takes awhile but easy)
