Default Too swingarm bag... or not too

Hello all. 1st official posting on here. Recently picked up a Hammer and love it. Been thinking about adding a swingarm bag to store that little rear seat tonneau cover. I know there are nice aftermarket seats available. But honestly really dig the stock look with the cover on. Anyone tried a swingarm bag before/currently? Been looking for a pic of a hammer with that bag and completely failed at it. Would like to avoid that purchase if its going to look goofy...

Someone recently posted some pics of a swingarm bag but it may have been under a saddlebag posting. It looked pretty good.

I put on a small tool bag:


but you'll need a big one to install that tonneau cover though.

Make a superfly windshield attachment for it. No bag needed then.

Default Too swingarm bag... or not too

Guys I have a solution I've been working on a design for, hopefully for a new product for our scoots. At the moment I'm not sure if it'll work with Jackpots and Hammers. Works on my High-Ball fine.

Would someone like to send me or post up some good detailed pics of their bike on that left side without the side cover, of the mounting spots were passenger pegs would go? Also around and just behind the battery area, mainly. I'd be able to try to see if these are remotely close at all to the other steel-frame bikes like my High-Ball.

Here's a hard-mounted solution I'm referring that leaves the swing-arm untouched on my High-Ball.

Look at La Rosa (I had one for about 5 yrs, GREAT quality) and Lick's Cycles. They look just like bsbabock's. Great little bag that looks pretty sick.

I found out from another photo, and you guys might confirm this, it appears your mounting point for rear pegs is actually on the swing-arm itself.. If so, this current mount design won't work as it uses the two points for the rear peg kit that are under the seat on the frame of vegas-frame "non-fat-tire" bikes.

If you guys could check and see... Do you have those two mounting points there at all? They'd be somewhere near or between your strut and the battery. I suspect your bikes don't have those threaded holes in that rear down-tube area infront of the front fender like mine. If that's the case, I'm afraid no dice on this mount on the JP and Hammer... at this time.
