The Classic Harley-Davidson Royalite Bublebags Are Back.

Remember the classic Harley-Davidson/Royalite saddlebags of the 50’s and 60’s. They appeared in 1952 on the Harley K models and in 1954 on Panheads and were also popular on Duo-Glides and Sportsters.

They are back in after-market production reintroduced by for use on classic Harley motorcycles but also on modern Softails. The classic Royalite® Plastic Bubblebag is similar to the original in every details. For current Harley models, the Fullback version of these hard bags has extra inside space because they don’t need a back wall recess required by classic motorcycles for chain and axle nut clearance. A large variety of brackts is available including for a few models from Indian, Triumph, Honda, Kawasaki, Yamaha & Suzuki.

    Because Cyril is very influential with his blog I bet you are going to see them back on a lot of 60’s and 70’s bikes.

    Cool indeed! And I see they’re thicker and sturdier than the originals, that’s a welcome improvement.
