I looked into them once. Depending on your bike, the shocks don't fit into the cutouts for the bags. My 1500 wasn't even close.

If you just like the looks of the Harley bags, have you checked out the Tsukayu Patrol bags or the Mutazu HL bags? Just make sure you do some research on them before buying. There are goods and bads to each.

You got my attention... I've been wanting to put Harley hard bags on my 03 Vulcan 1500 classic but I didn't think they would clear the shocks or the pipes. I have V & H straight shots. I've looked at the other brands on line but they all look a little different, not exactly the look I was hoping for and the size seem smaller. I was hoping for more storage. Plus I like the look of the hard bags with dueleys.

Don't overthink it. You need spacer for the stock saddlebag supports to move them out 1 inch and have to figure a way to hold them against the bottom of the support. Then they can't flop. Lay out where to drill 2 holes and use the saddlebag support bolts at the top
Looks like this
