Featured on the New Jeese Rooke Custom Bike Debuted at SEMA 2011


Find out the inside scoop on the new Jeese Rooke motorcycle featuring the Hardstreet Slimbags, Alexanne Wagner famed model and Monster Energy Girl hangs out with Ryan from Hardstreet at the 2011 SEMA Show. With great components from Dunlop tires, K&N Air filters, Bermbo Brakes, FMF Pipes, Rooke Custom foot pegs, triples and headlights. You will notice MX style foot pegs and contols mixed with an open rear wheel hard tail look. This bike is very hot and is going to be setting some new trends. The custom v-twin market has had to change to bikes that actual are practical to ride and own but still have custom look and feel. At first look Jeese’s bike looks like a hard tail custom but when you look closer you will find a full suspension bike. Jeese used the Slimbags and the FMF pipes to hide the softail suspension. From behind the open rear wheel looks cool and low but there to the suspension has been hidden with the Slimbags. The Alloy Tech brackets allow for a close fit without cutting and welding the frame. Jeese was able to place the bags exactly where he wanted them with all the adjustability of the Alloy Tech Brackets.


The 2012 Hardstreet Slimbags have a contoured back to allow a close fit for many popular dual shock cruisers. The Slimbags are designed to maintain a narrow profile but have large bag volume, 1800 square inches, in each bag. This is larger than most standard leather bags. Hardstreet bags have a weather resistant seal and push button locks.


Hardstreet Slimbags are designed to be mounted with our new Multi Fit  Alloy Tech  Brackets. These brackets provide simple adjustable mounting for your Slimbags, they can accommodate different pipe configurations and different seating configurations. The Slim Brackets are billet machined aluminum making them extremely strong but lightweight.  The Slim Brackets can be used with quick release backrests. The included bolts and spacers allow you adjust the Slimbags to fit most seats and exhaust pipes.




If quick release is what you're wanting, the Slimbags are compatible with quick release brackets such as Easy Brackets, Ghost Brackets or Edge Brackets. You can take your existing quick release brackets and replace your old leather bags for Slimbags.


Hardstreet offers many finish options for the Slimbags. Hardstreet has a complete painting facility to custom paint bags to order.  However, you can choose from our primer ready bags, high gloss black, or our tough satin black finished bags.



For over 10 years Hardstreet has been building saddle bags. You will find Hardstreet bags on many OEM motorcycles (standard and metric). But one thing remains the same Hardstreet bags are made with individual care and attention.  Hardstreet uses only the finest materials, such as automotive ABS plastic. This material is designed to work in extreme weather conditions from very hot to very cool. The benefit of ABS plastic is that it does not produce resin out gases like fiberglass or rotation molded bags. Often in hot weather fiberglass bags produce  resin gassing that will migrate into clothing and any other items that are inside the those bags. Additionally, ABS plastic maintains its’ shape and structure even in hot weather. Injection molded ABS plastic is also excellent to paint and easy to repair.



Retail Price starts at $399.95 for primer Slimbags, 449.95 for Satin Black, 549.95 for High Gloss Black and up to 795.95 for OEM colors. Check website for specific color quote on-line with model and year.
