Purchasing saddlebags for your Chief is typically one of the most expensive purchases you'll make for your ride. And before you spend your hard earned cash, help yourself make a solid decision by asking yourself a few questions:
What's Your Style: Do slanted saddlebags fit the lines of your bike best or will the classic box style saddlebags look better? Want to match or start a chrome stud motif? What about color? Black, tan, or do you want some other custom color?
Storage: What kind of storage capacity do you need? Are you a commuter and have minimal storage capacity needs or do you want motorcycle luggage with a capacity for weekend rides?
Materials: Should you invest in leather or vinyl? As a custom leather shop we believe in the lifetime durability and good looks of quality leather motorcycle saddlebags. Indian Chief is the kind of ride that screams quality and looks good dressed in premium leather! We use thick 10 ounce cowhide that is drum-dyed to make sure the black dye goes from top to bottom and through and through for a long lasting dye struck finish. If you're on a really tight budget, vinyl saddlebags will get you by - but won't last and won't do it in style.
Workmanship and Guarantee: How important is it to know the company you purchase from will stand behind you if something goes wrong with your saddlebags? Order almost any set of Indian Chief motorcycle saddlebags from Chilhowee Motorcycle Leather and you'll not only get the best handcrafted saddlebags available, but you'll get a lifetime warrantee against defects. Quite simply, we guarantee your satisfaction!
Born in the USA: What's your preference: Pakistan, Mexico, or the good old USA? It doesn't matter which of our saddlebags you invest in, they're all made right here in America. That's right. None of our saddlebags are imported. Each bag is made by Americans, in the USA, using USA harvested cowhide. Sometimes it's difficult to buy what you want or need and make sure it's made in the USA, but with Chilhowee saddlebags it's never a problem!
We have one of the broadest selections of bolt-on Indian Chief motorcycle saddlebags available. And each saddlebag is designed with a reinforced back so you can utilize quick release hardware like Easy Brackets (the quick release mounting system that allows you to remove your bags in seconds when you don't want or need them left on the bike).
Remember, our leather saddlebags are built to last and are made by leather craftsmen with generations of experience. Most importantly, Chilhowee Motorcycle Leather guarantees your satisfaction!
Although our fitment chart indicates the following saddlebags are known to have been mounted on and fit the Indian Chief, it is only a guide - not a guarantee of fit. We recommend that you compare the saddlebag dimensions with the available space on your bike. Click Here for instructions. In addition, some saddlebags may require turn signal relocation.
