How did you mount those bags? I love the Heritage look too.
All I did was drill the rivets out of the stock HD mounts and remove them. Then I bought stock R* brackets, which surprisingly fit perfectly to the plastic backing on the bags. There's a small 'bump-out' on the back of the bags that allows them to 'hang' on the bottom of the brackets. After centering them on the brackets, I just drilled new holes through the plastic backing and bolted them up with some fender washers. Looks pretty clean inside the bags too. I just used a little black silicone to disguise the holes from the stock rivets. It turned out pretty good and was just as easy as I had hoped!!
