Question Anyone ever use these?

Hello all, I was wondering if anyone has used these saddlebag brackets before?

https://www.ebay.com/ulk/itm/391442108180

If so do they work well? Most of the saddlebag brackets I have seen use two bolts to mount them to the bike. I was wondering if they would stand up to the test of time.
Thanks for any responses.

I have not used that stile of bracket as all I've used have had two bolts, my concern would be that only using one bolt that the bracket would not stay where it needs to be and would swing down in the rear.

Hello Old School, thanks for your reply. The bracket coming loos was my concern as well. It could get loose, slide down, and saddlebags and all could possibly end up tangled in the spokes. That would be a real show-stopper. I guess I will keep looking for cheap saddlebag brackets. Thanks again, Old School.

Your welcome! Try looking at some of these -- 250 rebel saddle bag mounts | eBay

As the ones in your post were kind of expensive.

+1 on the single mount point issue, and for what they're asking you have a very wide selection of proven two mount point guards to choose from.

"Ride Safe, Chop Safer" Motorcycles are not unsafe. However; they are extremely unforgiving of inattention, incompetence, ignorance, and stupidity.
Dismantling, sawzalling, and rattle canning does not make a bobber.
Those are STEPS toward customizing, not customizing unto itself.

Thank You Sir! These are exactly what I was looking for. For some reason my searches didn't show these. The fitment of these is for an 86 to 09, and mine is a 2016, but I bet they will work. I have to measure the space between the bolts, but even if they are not exact, I'm sure my mechanic can bend them and make them fit. Sweet! These are inexpensive too. Thanks again!

Actually it wouldn't be much of a task to make your own out of flat steel...two pieces dropping down off the fender rails and a third connecting them at the bottom, repeat for other side. Since the bags will be covering them, it really doesn't matter how good they look.
