I finally finished fabricating and welding brackets for these saddlebags. Found the bags on Amazon, they are Musette bags, the left side is 15" high x 15" wide x 5" deep, the right side (because of the exhaust) is 12" high x 12" wide x 6" deep. The parts of the mounting bracket that attach to the stock mounting points on the bike are 1/8" steel and the frame that mounts to the bag and connects to the mounting bracket is 5/16" steel rod. I used 3/8" rubber insulated clamps to attach the bag frames to the bags and lined each bag with aluminum sheet on 3 sides (to give the bags some structure and as a backing for the bag frame).

The bags have shoulder straps that I used as safety straps to keep the bags from falling off the bike in case the mounting system fails.

The flyscreen is 16 gauge steel.

Special thanks to Dave S. and his "Homemade screen mounted" post, which I used to design my flyscreen. Thanks also to Personne and his "Side bags" post which I referred to when designing my saddlebag mounts.

Wow, these really came out well.
How does the canvas hold up to the exhaust heat?
Thanks! I rode for about an hour in 75 degree weather and felt the right saddlebag, it was warm but not hot where the exhaust was hitting it. I am not worried since the bags are thick canvas and backed by aluminum which acts as a heat sink.
