Since the first motorcycle was invented, riders have needed bags for carrying essential items for daily use or gear for long road trips. National Cycle Cruiseliner™ Saddlebags are a stylish and practical evolution from the old throw-over leather bags. Lockable, hinged lids keep your contents safe and dry. For short day trips on a sport/touring, standard or naked bikes, try the versatile Storage Pod. Four internal zippered storage areas and a main compartment make this 4-liter bag a great companion for day trips. And of course, we have the ever-popular Holdster™ Windshield Bags, which mount to many popular National Cycle windshields to give you convenient up-front storage.


Cruiseliner™ Saddlebags are hard bags designed for serious use. The lids have forward hinges and open easily with a lockable pushbutton. Made in our factory in Maywood, IL, they come primed and painted in high gloss black and can be easily bolted on in 10-20 minutes. Custom painting is easy to do directly over the stock paint. Available for many cruiser and Harley-Davidson® motorcycles. New applications added continually.

National Cycle introduces Inner Duffel Bags for their popular Cruiseliner™ Saddlebag line. The new interior duffel is stitched to shape and fit easily into the compartment of the hard bags. The generous size conforms to the inside cavity with room to spare.

One size fits all Cruiseliner Saddlebags.

The well-constructed duffel is made from 600 denier polyester with a waterproof coating. A two-way zipper allows easy access in and out of the bag. These features, along along with the sturdy nylon web handles, make it easy to remove and carry your items without removing the hard saddlebags from the bike.



We developed the roomy 4-liter Storage Pod to give standard bike owners a stylish and practical way to carry the essentials. Inside the main compartment, three large zippered storage pockets and a zippered document/map holder are attached to a removable tray. It's so versatile, you'll never want to ride without it.

National Cycle Holdster™ Windshield Bags give you convenient, up-front storage for your gloves, sunglasses, camera, tools, garage door opener or anything you need to carry with you. Unlike leather bags that dry up or rot, our heavy gauge synthetic leather bags will stand the test of time. Holdsters that have been mounted to our test bikes for years still look as good as the day we put them on.
