I looked at the web site and got the impression the support frame takes up space in the bags. It also appears they restrict the size of the bag's opening. Is that true?

Re: Heritage bags

too bad they wouldn't just use the right weight of leather then we wouldn't have to worry about the sag. i got tired of trying to get good bags so made my own. i used 14 oz. leather for the back panel 10 ounce for the front and top. these babies will never sag

Re: Heritage bags

Thanks for all the replys, the bags is my next project on here, I will take some before and after pics. It takes some time to ship to Canada from the U.S. thru customs etc but it will get done sooner or later.

Billst has a very good point, most of your better aftermarket OEM makers use 13 oz. leather in their bags, and polypropylene (for water resistance and stiffness for those areas subject to watersplashing, which is why other aftermarket manufacturers make insert stiffiners to prevent "sagging bags".

Thanks for all the replies on this. I did some research on the ideas you all posted and found a dealer here in B.C. for the saggy bags insert kits, they cost a bit more here in Canada like 165.00 but shipping will only be 20 bucks, so saggy bags are ordered and now we are waiting. Thanks again I will try to post before and after pics.

Sorry I should also add that I learned that it is recomended to install a stiffner kit when the bags are new, before they get saggy bacause they can get to the point beyond repair.

Check out the hard bags from B&B Reproductions in Pa. They are a reproduction of the retro fiberglass bags of the fifties. I'm thinking about them for my Heritage.
