 Plain Swingarm Bag, Leatherworks 312 Chopper Solo Bag: from The Leatherworks: Chopper Bags are available in two sizes  

 The 312 is a bag specifically designed to attach to the swing arm with leather belts. It measures 10" x 11.5" x 3" and comes as a single bag. It also comes in the fatter version 312X which measures 10" x 11.5" x 5". It is 14 tall in the front, 9 tall in the back, 10.5" long across the top and 10 long across the bottom. The other measurements are pretty much the middle of the bag. It usually works on left sides unless there is a left side mounted license plate. It may work on the right side as well. It fits Harley Davidson Softails and it also fits Yamahas and some Kawasakis. It will NOT work on Dynas and Sportsters. We sell different solo bags that do fit Dynas and Sportsters. (The X will not work if the rider corners hard and he hits the foot pegs, the bag will hit the ground and that will destroy the bag.) It usually works on left sides unless there is a laid down license plate or dual side pipes. We sell a different bag that works with left side license plates.

The Leatherworks prides itself on the American Made quality workmanship that is put into every motorcycle saddlebag. You'll also find great classic styling with a rare attention to detail. The Leatherworks, Inc., founded in 1976, makes handcrafted Saddlebags with uncompromising care from premium 10-12oz American tanned struck through leather.

 All Leatherworks Saddlebags and Tool Bags are designed to fit on stock motorcycles. We recommend that you allow 1 inch to 1-1/2 inch clearance from the exhaust. All Bags are warranted against defects in workmanship. The Leatherworks cannot be held responsible for damage due to improper fit or improper installation.

 The Leatherworks Solo Saddlebags come with many standard features.
  • Quick Releases under the buckles.
  • Indian Head Nickels.
  • All bolt-on leather saddlebags and solo bags are made from a 10-12oz American tanned struck through leather. This is the heaviest leather being used in the industry.

 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
