    I'm using a set of through-overs that I custom mounted (fixed mount) via the detachable sissy-bar setup. I'm currently working on a design idea for a detachable set of bags for Nightster. Stay tuned in the "Sportster" section of forums.

    I've received some PMs with questions so here is a photo / diagram of the mounting I did.

    Smokeintoad, pretty neat to take on such a daunting task. I like the thought of converting the simplicity of design throwover leather bags with close fitting fit of quick release bags like Heritage or Road Glide...! Thank you for sharing and look forward to pictures of how your project turns out. :D
