“So the stars aligned and we were able to finally install the saddlebag brackets on the 2018 Softail Deluxe. Our customer went with the Bassani 2-into-1. You will see all of this from the pictures. All and all, great kit as always. Add another happy customer to your list!”

Softail Brackets accept Harley Davidson® Saddle bags 1993+
SUMAX’S extensive range of hard bag options has now expanded with the introduction of brackets for Harley Davidson® Softail models. The brackets are finished in Sumax high gloss black powder coat and feature 1/4-turn quick disconnects with Dzus fasteners like those found on all H-D Touring models. These connectors allow the brackets to be used with either H-D hard or soft bags from 1993 and newer.
Solid Mount Sissy Bars, Detachables, Luggage Racks and Passenger Boards will work with our brackets. However, if you have Rear Crash Bars on your Softail, our brackets will not work. We have found Softail Slim model’s fender rails are too short. To install brackets, you must add the standard Softail fender rail cover. (Breakout model will require special fabrication of mounting system on your end and a widened rear fender. Call us for details.) Turn signals located on fender or rails must be relocated for bag clearance. (Deluxe models need not to relocate.) The distance from fender rail bolts to bottom of bag is 13.5″ which is needed for clearance. Also, keep in mind wide seats may hinder opening of lids. If your exhausts are at the axle or below, you should have clearance. If your bike is lowered where the rear axle/nut is above the system, axle/nut you may contact & damage your bag. For additional support, our Part # 8810A is included at no charge. Running the bags with out the use of this bracket voids the warranty.
