WTB saddlebag support bars for saddlebag guards

I am searching for the support bars that are required when mounting saddlebag guards. I bought the guards on eBay but was not aware that I needed to have different saddlebag support bars.

I modded mine to accept the crash bars.

If you don't have access to a lathe you can weld, or have someone weld, a piece of 3/4" to a piece of 1/2" rod and accomplish the same thing.

What year? Are you looking for the front hoops that go in the leading side of the bags? If it's for pre-2008 I'm pretty sure I have a set.

I found the stock one stronger than the kit ones. I did not drill for bolts. Can still use tie downs on them

There's a dude in Western Mass that has chrome rear guards and black saddle bag supports for $75 on Craigslist. Fairly new take-offs. You could probably get them for $100 shipped.
