Does anyone have a tool bag mounted on their forks? I'm thinking of purchasing one from Fox Creek Leather. Does anyone have a fork bag mounted to their Sportster? Any problems / concerns that I should be aware of? Thanks.

Make sure that the bag is tied up far enough NOT to contact the front fender when the forks are compressed, and not mounted high enough to interfere with the headlight beam on the roadway.

Outside of that.....classic look.

Where's Honeybrook, PA?

Thanks for the replys and Pics. Dave63, Honeybrook is about 40 miles West of Philly. Plenty of country roads to ride on ... ironhead bobber, I'm thinking the same thing ... keeping registration, insurance docs, clear glasses, a few wrenches and screwdrivers in the bag. Has anyone purchased from Fox Creek leather before?

I put this one on since I got it cheap without knowing for sure if I'd like it. Now It's a part of the bike and holds tools, bungees, and misc goodies.

I bought a tool bag for my 08 Roadster , I use it to carry my insurance / registration info , and occasionally small water bottle or a small first aid kit. I find my toolbag quite useful and I am glad I bought one for my harley .

I have a similar one to Dave's above the forks. No problem and very helpful. I keep bike papers, tools and spark plugs with replacement tool after having a fuel flooding problem plus few other things. I inserted a picture for you. Go ahead and fix one without hesitation.
