A lot of them are "buyer beware"

They will show pics of nice looking parts and what you end up getting is not so good!

I have had bad luck buying stuff from ebay. When it comes to body parts it seems like you eigher spend it on the part or at the body shop and usually the body shop ends up costing more in the end.

I bought the CVO style bags from Direct cycle parts.... for 344$ I really like them.... Much better than stock flat bags..... But many prefer the full 4-5 inch drop bags....... Eastern Performance also had some for budget minded consumers......... LOL or cheap ass as I'm known to some....

The CVO sytled ones from DCP and EP are made by the same company. V-Twin Mfg. NY based company. Most of their products are made overseas. Their bags are pretty good quality.
