    I could not afford the licks solo bag. So I bought this one for $36 bucks! and mounted it myself.

    licks solo was too expensive

    Here is a top side shot. I can hardly tell its there. I can fit my Dickie jacket in it. Or a good sized lunch.

    That looks awesome!
    I'm not really a fan of bags on bikes with a swing arm...I only really like them when they are tied on to hardtails.
    that is what this reminds me of.
    please give more info on how this was done!

    Looks like it came that way from the factory. Also, like the under mount mirrors ala, 48.

    Re: mounting the bag

    Thanks all.
    Here are the details some have asked for.
    I got the bag for $36 at Cycle Gear - Motorcycle Apparel, Parts and Accessories
    its pretty good leather and seems rugged enough to be that low.

    I had to make holes where I was going to mount it to the frame.
    I made 2 sets of holes per corner and ran zip ties through them to make "belt loops".
    I then ran zip ties through these loops to secure the bag to the bike.
    I did this to all four corners. (I cut the excess length from the ties)

    it holds really firm. Cant even see the ties.

    next steps for the bike are V&H Straight shots and Mini apes!
