Saddle bags

Bought a pair of saddle bags at a recent swap meet. They are in great shape. As anyone ever seen these around. I've added a few pictures. The bags were made in Larimie Wyoming by a company named WEAR'S. Let me know what you think.

Those bags look just like a set I picked up a few years back except mine are black. I asked the same question as you and was told they where likely off of a super-glide from the early 90’s. -Steve

They were offered in the accessory catalog (somewhere around the mid ninety's). I am a big fan of these bags and in my opinion one of the best looking bags HD ever offered (at least post 1960).

Are they for sale?

Road Pirate, My 1988 parts book shows part #90837-87A as the # for the all black bags. I find nothing on the white bags. I think they were probably called creme instead of white.....Rod
