Last month we installed a Super Glide-style rear fender from Conely’s Accessories USA on our project Street Bob. We then thought it would be the right time to add a set of Conely’s USA-made Gen 3 Retro T-Sport saddelbags to the mix. And so we did!

These all-new American-made bags have seen much improvement over the past generations of Conely’s bags that were made overseas. And they are much easier to install than past editions. Here’s how we did it!

Here is the Conely’s fender on our Street Bob ready to get some excess baggage.

Detachable hardware for the Retro T-sport bags

Conely’s also makes some very nice detachable hardware for the Retro T-Sport bags. This means you can quickly take them on or off when needed.

Ready to mount

Once the detachable hardware was installed on our bike’s fender struts we were ready to mount the Gen 3 Retro T-Sport bags.

Lining up the inner bag plate mounting holes on the fender struts

The bags were slid in place until the inner bag plate mounting holes lined up with the attachment hardware on the fender struts.

Grade-8 hardware

The provided grade-8 hardware was then installed at four points, affixing the bags to the bike.

Conely’s bags vs OEM Harley-Davidson T-Sport bags

This image shows just how similar the Conely’s bags are to a set of OEM Harley-Davidson T-Sport bags. And they cost less and are a lot easier to find.
