    This set of case came with the police Guzzi purchased. There is a round hole looks like a round light mount. Is this the original LAPD case?

    Does anyone have a picture when this case is mounted on the bike?

    What's the best way to restore this case? Powder coat?

    Thank you for the reply,

    TT

    Looks like some retard cut holes to put speakers in

    They are metal bags used by some police departments. Good welder should be able put them back to original.

    So, did you buy the bike from the Vanagon mechanic???

    Don't get your hopes up by checking out cycle garden.

    Any auto body shop can do it, with no trace of the damage. A heating and air conditioning installer (or you) could probably make a patch panel.
