The traditional tubular steel saddlebag holder from Hepco & Becker was the original way they originally designed leather luggage mounts for cruisers. Each saddlebag holder is styled to suit the lines of each bike. The chosen style of Leathebags are attached to the saddlebag holders either by (a) permanently by supplied saddles or (b) via our leatherbag quick release kit. We recommend if you are want a QR kit on your leatherbags that are going onto saddlebag holders that the QR kit is mounted by our techs in Germany. From cruisers from 2007 onward, sadlebags holders have been progressively replaced by C-Bow mounts.
