Default Saddlebag lid rail install

After seeing the saddlebag lid rails in chrome and black at the Javits Ctr. show in NYC, I had to put 'em on. Was a little concerned about drilling into the lids but like the end result.2013 chrome 004.jpg

Default grab bars?

Looks good especially with the chrome grab bars. I have the rails but not the grab bars. What did those run you and are they a Victory or after market part?

The grab bars are Victory part #2877480 MSRP $299.99. The Co-Pilot wanted them. She uses them and like 'em.

The seat was recovered black/grey Ostrich by a local upholsterer. The bike does have an attraction. Thanks for your comments.

The seat, recovered, with a fairly quick turn around time, was right around $250.00. Changed the whole look of the bike.

Does it come with a template to show you where to drill? or is it a guessing game..haha

I bet the underside of the lid is dimpled to show where to drill. My trunk lid is for the rack and the lowers were to add locks.
