Redesigned Saddlebag/Box brackets

I have redesigned the original brackets I had fabricated to mount Bestem 2012 boxes as saddlebags. These brackets can be adapted to mount just about any aftermarket permanently mounted hard or leather saddlebag. These brackets can also be adapted to mount detachable saddlebags/rear boxes by bolting the original mounting plates to the brackets as I did. Mushrooms and locking catch can also be installed to fit certain other systems as well. The purchaser will need to drill the saddlebag mounting holes to fit the particular bags or mounting system they choose.

These brackets are designed to bolt directly to the CTX700 (fairing model) using the existing hardware. The N model will require the inner supports, spacers, bolts and exterior grommets. Although it is not necessary, I do recommend purchasing the backrest brackets and carrier since it comes with the necessary hardware except the inner supports for the N version and it provides a much more stable base.

If any Forum members are interested, I am now selling them. The cost is $130.00 including shipping within the continental US and a small handling fee. I can only accept a check or money order. These brackets are custom fabricated by a local fabrication shop so expect 7 - 10 days for production and shipping. Feel free to send me a PM if you have any questions or would like to order a pair.

Unfortunately there's very little if anything in it for me. I'm just doing it for forum members who would like to add other bags or boxes instead of the OEM. Nothing else out there and the CTX requires a specific one up mount custom designed to fit. Making one or two at a time isn't very business savy but it helps the local shop and it gives our members an alternative for the moment.

These and the Givi E21 bags would be a great setup for under $300.00.

Geezyrider has been awesome to allow me to repost a picture of his saddlebag installation using the new brackets. The bags look incredible on his N version CTX.

Great job on the bags! Your bike has real touring capacity now. BTW, I like your windscreen, Is it a Cee Bee and what size please?
