    A few years ago I purchased a set of lowers for a road glide off eBay that look to have been made by this company , I was very satisfied , am still using them and in a lot of ways they were built better than HD originals. Don't know if the red would match but the black should.
    only $995 complete with locks seams reasonable, hell they may be making them for Indian.

    remember, if you decide to buy these bags, you will need the exhaust pipes with the bag mounts on them. They support the bags.

    One of our IMRG members has these on his Chief. They are not OEM quality, but are pretty good. They are a bit thinner and flex more than OEM. He also had issues with the seals for the lids. He’s since put on OEM concert lids and seems to be happy with the bags for the cost.

    I'm thinking about these by Ends Cuoio; handmade in Italy specifically for the Chief. Has a metal backing plate that provides the support, and uses the existing fender bolt locations. The price shown is "per bag", but they will deal with you. And customization is available. My quoted price was $1300 including freight. I like the "mailbag" look...

    I was thinking of getting them in brown to match my seat. But after some thought, I believe I'll get them in black as pictured.

    Glad I found this thread. I'm currently searching for bags, and these look great!

    Speaking of great, wow...that's a good looking bike! (also like the bags)

    Does anyone have a recommendation for a set of leather/leather-ish lowers that lock? Don't need my weather essentials stolen while at the bar, or something.
