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.
