Where are the custom leather saddlebags made?
Iron Bags are hand-built in a small town just outside Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Our family owned shop has been designing and making these high quality custom leather saddlebags for Harley Davidson motorcycles for over 20 years.
What kind of leather do you use for the saddlebags?
Our large bolt-on Harley saddlebags are made of top grain American saddle leather. These hides are vegetable tanned from Hermann Oak Leather, a company that started tanning hides in the 1880's. The vegetable tanning process is more expensive but produces a firmer hide with superior shaping qualities.
Can I put whatever I want on my custom saddlebags?
We offer our motorcycle saddlebags from plain to totally decked out. There are also some photo links from the price list to better describe certain options.
How are Iron Bags custom leather saddlebags different?
The fiberglass backing gives us the ability to fit the saddlebag snug to the bike chassis. Also, the fiberglass provides strong support and a secure mounting to the motorcycle. The fiberglass back can be seen on the 360 spin images.
