The Leatherworks prides itself on the American Made quality workmanship that is put into every motorcycle saddlebag and tool bag. You'll also find great classic styling with a rare attention to detail. The Leatherworks offers more customizing choices for your motorcycle saddle bags than anyone in the business. All of The Leatherworks saddlebags can be made with a zipper detachable yoke or made bolt on ready for use with the Easy Brackets detachable system. All the roller buckles are backed by a Quick Release allowing the rider to access the inside of the bag in seconds. The Leatherworks, Inc., founded in 1976, makes handcrafted Saddlebags and Tool Bags with uncompromising care. All their leather saddlebags and motorcycle accessories are made from a 10-12oz American tanned struck through black leather. This is the heaviest leather being used in the industry. All saddle bags have ABS plastic reinforcement on the tops of the bags and all bolt on bags have hard backs made of conveyor belt rubber reinforced with ABS plastic.

 C&C Motorcycle Seats start with quality hand laid fiberglass that contour to every angle of your frame, in order to build a strong, yet flexible foundation. C&C Seats then uses high-density urethane foam with a unique shape that buckets you in the seat. This highly resilient urethane foam provides firm resilient comfort, despite the ultra low profile, our unique foam cushions and supports your weight evenly for a comfortable ride, for you and your passenger. LEATHER - Leather is great for motorcycle seats, it adds to the comfort for long distance riding. Leather is a natural product; it breathes very well and helps to keep your body cool. Leather will also conform to the foam shape, and gives you a personalized fit with use. If you do a lot of cross country riding or commuting on your bike in bad weather, or park it outside, a water resistant Vinyl Seat Cover with minimal stitching is your best choice. If your bike is parked indoors and protected from the weather for much of its life, a leather seat covered with one of the standard stitch patterns offers added durability, riding comfort and increased pride of ownership.

 Information about "Bolt-on Ready" and "Throw-over" Saddlebags:
 For an even stronger saddlebag with greater structural stability, the Leatherworks has reinforced all bolt on ready bags with ABS plastic that is the full size of the back, not just strips. The plastic is about 0.25 inches thick. This is done for all bolt on bags and all larger throw over bags, including the 128 saddlebags. (if you order Easy Brackets from American Side Road Cycles, we’ll make sure you get the proper support).
The Leatherworks "Bolt-on Ready" saddlebags have specially reinforced backs. Mounting hardware (bolt-on brackets) is not provided. You may purchase this hardware from your dealer, a trusted aftermarket supplier or from American Side Road Cycles - the Leatherworks bags are designed to work with just about any bolt-on system out there. We sell Easy Bracket brand bolt-on hardware systems that you can purchase with the bags or separately. The reinforcements are designed to work with any bolt-on system that is currently on the market. Because the Leatherworks saddlebags are designed to fit multiple motorcycle makes and models, as well as just about any OEM and aftermarket bolt-on system, it is not practical for them to pre-drill the holes in the back of the saddlebags (can you say "Swiss cheese"). You'll need to do this to properly fit these saddlebags to the bolt-on system you select. The other reason is that everyone has their own preferences as to how high/low or back/forward they want to mount their bags. Because of these preferences and the different systems, we've found it best to not pre-mount anything. With the use of lowering kits, the main thing is to be sure the bags clear the pipes and axle nuts, which with the Easy Brackets means putting the bracket lower on the back of the bike to get the clearance that is needed. 

 The Leatherworks "Throw-over" saddlebags are designed with an adjustable zippered yoke that connects the two sides of the saddlebag together. On the zipper detachable bags, they have straps across the back which go between the bike and the bag on the support brackets. In other words, the support brackets slip between these straps to hold the bags in place. This yoke is designed to go under the seat. We highly recommend saddlebag supports for throw-over bags. These are fairly common "U-brackets" that keep the bags from getting caught in the shocks, gears, wheels and other parts of the bike. We offer these "U-bracket" type supports from MC Enterprises. The Leatherworks warrantees do not cover damage caused by the lack of proper saddlebag supports. With the use of lowering kits, the main thing is to be sure the bags clear the pipes and axle nuts.

 Zipper to Zipper Yoke Measurements :
 Dyna Yoke - For Dyna Series = 15 inches
 Standard Yoke - For all others = 13 inches
 Sport Yoke - For Sportsters 1994 & up and Dynas 2003 & up = 17 inches
 Honda Yoke - For all Honda Bikes = 13 inches
 Adjustable Yoke - For all Bikes = 11-1/2 to 17 inches
 Fatboy Yoke - For all Fatboys with stock exhaust on 1999 and older bikes = 10-1/2 inches
