    I think it is an Indian Skull, but if it's Harley, so be it - It's Indian now! :p

    He's not a Nazi, he just marches to the beat of a different Accordian Player. :p

    Skulls are a Biker thing, not just for Harleys, been seeing them on Bikes and Bikers for over my 57 years of riding.

    Why skulls? Can't figure that out. What self-image or Walter Middy trip is behind them? Isn't that kinda like wearing your pants down below your butt in imitation of prison inmates, whose pants sag like that because they're not allowed to have belts?

    When you're sitting on a controlled explosion, travelling at 85mph, gliding over roads filled with potholes, deer, and phonefaced yuppies, with your feet 3" above the road, you become comfortable with images of your own mortality.

    Not for me. It is Decoration that I like, It helps remind me that our time here is only temporary - among other things.

    Since this thread is about Conchos, I have a questions. One of mine fell off of my saddle bags, the one that holds the strap on, and I went ahead and purchased a new set of copper ones pictured below. My question is, how do I remove the ones that are still on the bag. Supposedly there is a screw on the back that holds it to the bag/strap but I looked and couldn't see one. Of course I'm half blind when it comes to seeing tiny things up close. Anybody have knowledge on how to remove them.

    Lift up your saddle bag lid and look at the area behind the concho - there are Eyelets that are screw access points for the conchos. If I remember correctly , the Indian Conchos use Allen Head Screws. Those should fit your new Conchos - same thread. The screws that came with your new conchos have too big a head to fit through the Eyelet access.
