Question Will these work?

Ok so I dont know much about motorcycles so I'm gonna ask you guys. Does anybody know if these handlebars and saddlebags will work on my 2001 Shadow Spirit 1100?

they both should work. as long as the bars that are on it now are 1 inch. The bags come with universal mounting hardware it looks like and your bike is listed on the ad as compatible.

FYI, you will not be happy with the 'mounting brackets' that come with those saddle bags.

i bought a similar set from eBay and ended up fabricating my own brackets from square aluminum tubing. i used 1/4", 1x1 square tubes.

You may want to look at the angle of the angle of the front brake master cylinder on the stock handlebars. The angle will change with flat bars and although it will work, it will sit at an angle and look out of place. Just a thought. PD

I'm not 100% on your 01 Spirit but on my 96 Ace the handlebars are drilled to accept the locating studs on both the light switch / turn signal control block and also the start / stop and on / off control block. The bars in the link you posted don't appear to have these holes so be prepared to have to drill them yourself if that is indeed the case.
