After trying to find some resonably price saddlebag supports i stumbled appon these for $28. They're ment for a Honda but work perfectly on my 2016 gunner. The bolts were 8mm just like Victorys and I would assume they would work on any steel frame victory. They come in black and chrome. Hope this helps somebody.
The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair.
