I've got a set of HD quick detachable saddlebags on my drag bagger. These bags have factory quick detach rails on the back of them. I just realized, doing a little what if, that these bags appear to be set up for a v-rod. The shock cut out matches the angle of the v-rod shock and there is a inset area that fits the upper belt guard.
My question is: Did HD ever make frame brackets for the '02's set up for factory quick detach bags?

My bike is a 2008 but it has factory HD saddlebag quick release mounts and bags. The mount has a tubular frame that wraps around the rear fender as well, it forms a sort of bump-guard. I just got this thing last week and am realizing there is a bit of a parts disparity between the 180 and 240 rear tire bikes though. I hope they made them for your frame size!

The V-Rod quick release saddlebags have 2 half-circle tubes mounted to it's frame horizontal . These half-circle hook onto the top rail of the tubular frame that kobbs posted . Then a pin near the back-end of the bag engages into a spring-loaded hole in the tubular frame . A pin/button releases this pin when you want to remove the bag . There is a difference of the tubular frame , from the 180 to 240 bikes .
