Looks good. I guess I'm going to be forced to buy it. I had them on both sides of my 2010 Harley Electra Glide and they are very useful and convienient. The thing that sticks in my craw is that Harley's bags are $79 each as opposed to $199 for the Indian ones. The Harley's are imitation leather but that is a plus to me, leather requires maintenance.

I made my last one for the Harley. I will make me one, i have half a cow hide, tan leather so I will start me one.
You can do the same by dropping into Tandy store. Total should be a tenth if that price.
ROBSMST thanks I will use your post as my pattern

You just gave me an idea, I have a old friend that does custom work in leather great workmanship and highly skilled embossing. The best of both worlds hand made and made in North America.

I'll keep this in mind but being a custom leather guy and a friend I think the cost won't be cheap because I am unable to take advantage of folks because of friendships. I believe if the work is superior the cost should be high and I justify that cost. I've handed my umbrella off to a complete stranger and walked home in the pouring rain, when asked why my reply is
' I've ridden in worse it's only water". So again I'll post the result if I can interest him at a fair price.
