    Do your original production drawings show 7 holes in the cover straps as shown in the pic you posted?

    the question was....

    I did not ask about the mount plates.......read a little slower.

    I'd be interested in the book about H-D saddlebags, too. I'm planning on having a set built by Worsham for my 45FL when I can afford them.
