How to make a Softtail Bagger

   In the ever changing world of Motorcycle Customization, one of the big trends is adding Touring Bags to the Softtail line. Let’s face it, the Hard Bags The Motor Company offers for The Softtail Family just don’t look right. That is why K and G Cycles ( has found a set of bags that install easily and give you the look you’ve been wanting.

   The HT Series HRIDE-HT ST KITard Saddlebags for Harley Softtail Models (Standard, Deluxe, Heritage, Fat Boy) Combo package includes HT Series saddlebags and our Softtail Bagger Conversion Kit. This includes everything you need to convert your Softtail to a bagger with ease! The HT Saddlebags are a full size touring bag, featuring a triple ribbed design, making the bags extra durable! The bags come equipped with all hardware (latches, locks, etc). Unlike our competitors, our latches are metal, not ABS.

   Included with this package is the Softtail Conversion Brackets which enable you to install HT bags to your Softtail with little fuss. This heavy duty conversion kit fits all Softtail models except the Deuce & Slim. The bracket uses the two fender bolts (9.25″ center to center) on your Softtail for support. Included with your purchase you will receive one pair of HT Series saddlebags (left + right), as well as one pair of Softtail Conversion Brackets (left + right).

So when the time comes to transform your motorcycle into the Custom Ride you want, make sure you stop by K and G Cycles ( and pick up a set of Touring Bags and everything required to install them. You will be glad you did.

Important: The exhaust pipe must hang below the rear axle in order to use the conversion brackets. Turn signals will also need to be relocated (except on the deluxe model).
