Excellent follow through!  Congratulations.

Thanks Dave,
As mentioned early on, this was not a restoration rather a refresh to treat the Convert as a rider. 

The old boot with the period Samsonite side cases. I like them, great capacity and fill up that back end nicely. I needed to adjust the rear directionals to work with no interference and they are tucked in tight but still very visible.

I love those Samsonites and want to adapt them to my Tonti frame Mille GT.
Did you have to fabricate your own brackets for your bike?
Thanks.
